The City's overall strategy for this area is a combination of reuse, re-positioning, and redeveloping vacant commercial space and land. Residential development potential will likely be smaller-scale, but this TIA is well-located to attract workforce renters and buyers. New residential development will improve the area's overall image and help to attract the appropriate type of replacement retail. Professional and other smaller-format office users can take advantage of the IH 635 access and would also benefit from quality new residential design.
