A key component to downtown revitalization is not only filling available properties on The Ave, but also filling them with quality, sustainable businesses and, likewise, creating quality living downtown living space.
To do this, we have created several initiatives, and one that has yielded real dividends we have done it so far has been our Realtor Tour on The Ave—a project of our Economic Vitality Team. The fruit this initiative has borne over the previous three times we have done the tour can be seen in some of the results. The first time it was done, we saw five of the properties we showed rented. Another tour resulted in Mauro’s on the Ave, The Ave’s latest restaurant and lounge, which opened last year next to the Landis Theater.
