Neighborhood Vision 2025

Preserve Legacy Buildings

Along with relics of “Millionaire’s Row”, area churches and industrial buildings like Warner-Swasey are monuments to MidTown’s history. Retention of MidTown’s historic structures is essential, but it takes extra effort to overcome the redevelopment challenges many of these properties pose. It will take a committed team, creative funding, and thoughtful preservation that will make MidTown feel unique and rooted as it continues to grow.
