Demolition of Portions of Medford’s Former Red Lion Inn Expected to begin before Year’s End.
The city of Medford has put out request for bids on portions of the city’s former Red Lion Inn and expects work to begin before the end of the year.
Three buildings and a swimming pool at the southern end of the property are slated to be removed in favor of a 100 space parking lot. The additional parking is to accommodate more businesses expected to move into ‘The Commons” with its two parks, Lithia’s Headquarters and soon SkyOak Wealth Management.
The remaining portion of the former motel has been converted into the “Inn at the Commons” and is being remodeled and will soon be able to offer 118 rooms, down from 185 rooms featured in the former Red Lion.
