Construction Mind-sets

A rendering of current plans to redevelop the former downtown Buick in Springfield. Though the building “definitely has a draw for reinvestment or adaptive type reuse,” it is not part of the current project, Griesel said. That likely will happen in another phase, she said, but there’s no concrete timeline yet for development on the historic building or a lot to the north. The Scherer family is working with Northwest Sustainable Properties to develop the lot just east of the historic building — between the former dealership and the post office. That’s known as “lot 2300.” Read more from 2019: Downtown fixture Springfield Buick closing Eight stories, 85 units, 5,000 square feet commercial The Scherers and the developer plan to invest $27 million to build an eight-story building. The building would include seven stories of market-rate residential — about 85 units — and around 5,000 square feet of commercial space on the first floor. The goal is to finish construction by 2023. There’s also a goal to include mass timber in the construction. Mass timber is lighter than metal and concrete but still resilient, Griesel said, and many have long seen it as a “more affordable way to build taller.” The project would be a first for the city in many ways, she said, including the use of mass timber. She and city officials emphasized one first in particular — Springfield doesn’t yet have any multifamily buildings taller than five stories. City leaders are excited the project will help fill that need and bring other benefits. “This is product that we want,” said Nathan Bell, the city’s finance director. The city needs to work to “flood the market with housing” to increase supply and bring the market rate down, he said.

Most of those were occupied, according to the data, which estimates around 815 — just 3.2% of units — were vacant. Median rent was around $929 per month, according to that same data. A 2019 study from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development classified the combined sales and rental markets in Eugene and Springfield as "very tight," with a two-month supply of homes and an estimated rental vacancy of just 2.5% "A slowdown in rental construction activity has failed to keep up with the steady demand for rental units, contributing to the tight market conditions," that study reads.  There’s been a lack of comparable housing for developers looking to do a project like this for years, VanGordon said, and this will help fill that gap some.

The court previously dismissed the suit , finding that Principal is not a fiduciary when it sets the composite crediting rate (CCR) for the GIC and it is also not a party-in-interest engaging in prohibited transactions. However, the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals reversed that ruling last February. The GIC, called the Principal Fixed Income Option (PFIO), was available in the retirement plans of the plaintiff in the lawsuit and the class members he represented. In his opinion, Jarvey noted that Principal calculates the CCR every six months using a formula set forth in the PFIO contract and its related schedules. “Participants who do not like the CCR can reject the rate by immediately withdrawing their funds from the PFIO at any time and at no cost. A plan sponsor who does not like the CCR, or who otherwise wishes to stop offering the PFIO to its participants, can withdraw all its participants’ funds from the PFIO in one of two ways. First, it can withdraw from the PFIO at no cost after giving 12 months’ notice to Principal (the 12-month put). In the alternative, it can withdraw from the PFIO immediately, without notice, by paying a charge equal to 5% of the plan assets allocated to the PFIO,” the opinion states. Jarvey said the evidence demonstrated that these restrictions benefit participants by reducing the risk of large, sudden cash outflows from the PFIO. He also said that without these restrictions, Principal could not offer a pooled guaranteed product with a rate as high and as stable as the PFIO. After reviewing the rate-setting process for the PFIO, Jarvey considered “deducts” from the guaranteed interest rate (GIR), which are intended to reflect Principal’s predictions about certain future costs and risks that it undertakes in connection with offering the PFIO. Jarvey found all contested deducts were reasonable and represented a reasonable expense of administering the PFIO. Jarvey pointed out that the statute defining the duty of loyalty plainly identifies “the interest of the participants” as including “providing benefits” and “defraying reasonable expenses of administering the plan.” He found that Principal’s determination of the deducts from the GIRs for the PFIO properly served “the interest of the participants” as to payment of benefits in the form of a guaranteed return, defraying reasonable expenses, and providing a sound and stable investment. The plaintiff contended that undivided and unconflicted loyalty, with no consideration for the fiduciary’s own gain, is required under ERISA, so a fiduciary acting under a conflict of interest breaches its fiduciary duty. However Jarvey agreed with Principal that a conflict of interest is not enough, standing alone, to establish a breach of fiduciary duty. The plaintiff offered an alternative argument that a fiduciary operating under a conflict of interest must be especially scrupulous, adding that Principal was not scrupulous when setting the CCR, because it took no steps to mitigate the conflict, thus breaching its duty of loyalty. The plaintiff argued that Principal should have mitigated the conflict of interest by stepping aside and allowing independent third parties to set the CCR or, at the very least, that Principal should have consulted with independent third parties when setting the CCR. But Jarvey found that “the ever-present tension between profit for Principal and the return for the participants did not require Principal to seek advice from independent third parties in setting the CCR or to require Principal to surrender the task of setting the CCR to independent third parties to avoid a breach of fiduciary duty.” In addition to the lack of a true conflict of interest, Jarvey said the market for products, such as the GIC, adequately protects investors. “When all the components of ‘the interest of the participants’ are considered, there is substantial alignment between ‘the interest of the participants’ and Principal’s interest.
