COMS building to be renovated, expanded

REDMOND, Ore. – Multimillion-dollar changes are likely on the way for Redmond’s medical district.

 The city’s Urban Renewal Advisory Committee is supporting plans for a $6.5 million medical facility. It’s recommending the city invest $600,000 in a forgivable loan toward the project.
The Central Oregon Medical Specialists building, located at 333 N.W. Larch Avenue, was purchased for about $2 million. Now, developers have more than $4 million worth of renovations planned.
