When the southeast quadrant of Medford was incorporated into the city’s urban growth boundary, the area was master planned with the input of a citizen’s advisory council. That committee designated areas for residential, mixed-use retail/office and open space uses. Approximately 18AC was reserved for a village center in the northeast corner of the site adjacent to two main arterial roadways. Oregon Architecture was asked to develop the overall village center plan, and tie it in to the adjacent street grid and constructed residential development. We were also tasked with developing the design parameters for any structures to be constructed within the commercial center, including standard building trim details and features. These design parameters were used to guide the redevelopment of the former Scottish Rite Building into the Rogue Credit Union Administrative Center within the village center itself, which this office also designed.
The center’s plan was unanimously approved by the Medford City Council and the Medford Site Plan and Architectural Review Commission.
