Neighborhood Vision 2025

Encourage New Housing Development

The approximately 1,300 units of housing that exist in MidTown are scattered across the area with few units available for sale or rent. The relatively low population density brings challenges in attracting retail and services to MidTown. To better connect employers to potential employees and provide more customers for area businesses, MidTown needs to grow its residential base. More residents in the area will also make the neighborhood more vibrant and multi-dimensional. MidTown should encourage mixed-income housing to serve residents and families of all shapes and sizes, set clear expectations for new developments under the influence or friendly ownership, and smooth the pathway for new private development that meets the typological needs and expectations of the neighborhood.
