The Medford Planning Commission is gearing up to discuss a proposal that could add much needed housing to the southwest Medford landscape. This proposal involves the consideration of plans for a sprawling 122-unit multi-family residential development. The project is set to unfold in three phases and will encompass 18 3-story buildings, aiming to meet the growing demand for housing in the area.
The proposed development is slated for a 4.62-acre site, which, when factoring in gross acres, totals approximately 4.95 acres. This expansive tract of land is situated on the west side of Lozier Lane, approximately 650 feet south of W. Main Street, making it a prime location for multi-family residential housing.
The focal point of this development is the creation of market-rate apartments, addressing the city’s need for additional housing options. With the continued growth in population and a competitive housing market, these apartments are poised to provide additional choices for residents.
However, before this project can move forward, a minor zone change will be required in a section of the development area. This zoning adjustment is a crucial step in the approval process and eventual construction of the 122-unit residential complex.
The Medford Planning Commission is set to deliberate on the proposal in the coming weeks, with community input and expert opinions playing an important role in the decision-making process.
Medford Alert will continue to monitor this development and provide updates as they become available.
