Building Boom Welcomed in Southern Oregon

Here's a phrase that's been largely absent from the news in recent years: a building boom.

That's how the Medford Mail-Tribune and local television station KVAL describe the situation in the Rogue Valley. According to both media outlets, Medford has seen more than $75 million in commercial construction projects this year, with more on the way. Current work sites include a Wal-Mart, and the Lithia Motors headquarters; construction is also expected to begin on Northgate Marketplace, a commercial development that will include an REI store and a Trader Joe's market.

Much of the current development was planned before the recession, but is only coming to fruition now. Many area projects are expected to carry into 2012. Get more information in the full story.
