NEW EVENTS STREET FOR DOWNTOWN MEDFORD
THE COMMONS PARK BLOCKSMEDFORD, OR
CORPORATE CITIZEN PROVIDES COMMUNITY EVENTS SPACE
Lithia Motors developed a new headquarters building in downtown Medford. As part of this project, they also developed an adjacent 2-block park and events space. studioINSITE (as Landworks) led the urban design and landscape architecture for the corporate headquarters and the events street.
PARK BECOMES ACTIVITY HUB
The south block features a large pedestrian plaza with a pop-jet fountain. An orchard anchors the south end of this block as a nod to the community's agricultural roots. The north block includes a covered stage and events green. A 30' living holiday tree anchors the north end of this block, helping to activate the space during winter months. A permeable paver street runs between the two park blocks, helping to manage stormwater runoff.
