~ Development Opportunity ~
In 2001, the property secured a wide range of zoning approvals during its initial zone change to become an unlimited production volume winery and events facility. In addition, there are property rights to build a (wine and culinary-styled) conference center; a museum, restaurant, overnight accommodations and retails space for the future. To date, despite there being intense demand for conference facilities in the southern Oregon market, no solution has surfaced. The subject property is located in an ideal location to serve the conference business by several measures:
• The subject property is essentially at the very center of the population distribution area for the Rogue Valley. It is close (10 minutes) to Ashland, Jacksonville, Medford Intl. Airport and the surrounding communities.
• It is strategically located directly between the two high traffic tourist communities – Ashland and Jacksonville.
• It is surrounded by several newer hotels with adequate capacity.
• Four golf courses within a three-mile radius – with varying play experiences.
• Two major freeway exchanges are within 2 miles with an off-ramp planned to load directly from the freeway past the facility.
• The location borders on the Medford urban boundary. And functions as a part of the urban community. All roads that connect to the property are major thoroughfares with ample traffic capacity for the planned zoning building approvals.
• Specific land use approvals for this property include: Unlimited wine production approval, a conference facility, restaurant, retail space, tasting room, museum and high-end overnight accommodations (cottage-type suites).
