The near 5 acre lot will eventually be home to more than 30,000 square feet of commercial and office space. Contractors haven’t said what will be in the new space, but residents like Greg Clark hope it will include small businesses.
“Something that would cater to the people that live in the area,” Clark says, “you know like more restaurants maybe, something that would help the local economy.”
According to the plan, there will be two buildings built on the parcel, and nearly 200 parking spaces.
Executive Producer Kristin Hosfelt anchors NBC5 News weeknights at 5 and 6. Originally from the Bay Area, Kristin earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Broadcast Journalism from San Jose State University.
She came to KOBI-TV/NBC5 from Bangor, Maine where she was the evening news anchor. Kristin has won multiple journalism awards including Best Feature Reporting in the State of Maine. In 2017, her investigation on lead pipes in Medford’s water system was named Best News Series by the Oregon Association of Broadcasters.
When Kristin is not sharing the news, she’s traveling, hunting down the best burrito, or buried in a Jodi Picoult novel. She’s also a Green Bay Packers shareholder; if you see her out and about she’d be happy to tell you the story of how a California girl became a cheesehead.
