Twenty-two new two-bedroom, two-bath, market-rate apartments called Cowboy Court are under construction at 154 W. Adams Ave. in Sisters, in between the existing Mountain High Apartments and the Sisters Art Works building.

Designed by Mayes Architecture and Planning, they are being built by Empire Construction and Development, a Bend company headed by Kevin Spencer. When completed, the one-acre parcel of land will hold two two-story buildings, one with 12 apartments and the other with 10. Two of the ground-floor apartments are fully compliant with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) guidelines and all the other ground-floor apartments are adaptable, meaning they have things like extra blocking for the installation of grab bars.

There are four different unit layouts, including the ADA apartments. They each have carpet and vinyl floor coverings, washers and dryers, dishwashers, and patios or decks with outside storage closets. Some units will have a kitchen pantry and built-in desk. In most units, one bathroom will have a shower and the other a tub/shower combination.

On site will be 29 parking spaces, 11 of which will be in two carports. There will be 11 on-street pull-in parking spaces in front of the apartment complex.

The projected completion date for the apartments is summer 2019. The rents do not qualify as officially "affordable," but they will also not be high-end, according to the developer. The owner of the project is Cowboy Court LLC of Corvallis.
