Neighborhood Vision 2025

Create Community Gathering Spaces

Though some retail destinations offer the opportunity to see and be seen in MidTown, there isn’t a central space for social gatherings and open spaces are limited. MidTown needs bold, new spaces where people can gather together. As MidTown grows, public spaces should highlight existing community values and culture, and amenities for existing and new residents. These spaces can take many forms - formal and informal, spaces for outdoor events, playspaces for children, and spaces to eat, rest, and recharge.
