The Medford Urban Renewal Agency (MURA) is pleased to announce two residential development opportunities. MURA is soliciting proposals from experienced firms for the design and construction of multi-story, housing or mixed-use development, in the downtown core. The current use of the parcels is surface parking. MURA is interested in innovative proposals for these properties, including a purchase of air rights to enable development above the parking lots. MURA recognizes that additional housing and/or mixed-use developments in the downtown core are necessary to increase the downtown’s vitality and provide for a housing type that is lacking in not only Medford but all of Jackson County, that which provides for a more urban experience. MURA is particularly experienced with public-private partnerships.
Medford is a growing city of almost 80,000 residents. The City and MURA are committed to supporting ambitious projects that will bring new residents to our downtown. MURA is not restricting this project as to types of units, owner or rental housing or housing targeted at households of a particular income. MURA is seeking creative uses for the sites that will complement and enhance the existing and new developments in the downtown core.
