Im sure that area could turn into a westport type place.Everytime I drive by there, I just see hookah stores.It seems like a waste of an area, I would like to see it get some luxury apartaments and shops, to create a westport feel.
I've heard some talk for proposals in the area for shops. Think a few restaurants have had a hard time in that strip recently (wouldn't say fault of the area).
Midtown isn't a luxury area currently. Could be over time along the Broadway stretch. Not something you really want to force though IMO.
MAC Properties nearing completion of the renovations of the old Ambassador Hotel. Had no idea the top floor had views to the north of the downtown sklyine! Any news on if the Congress building nearby is still slated for residential?
