The Main St. East/North Clinton Avenue Retail District is, as at present time (November 2015) one of downtown's ugliest, most blighted areas. Ironically, it is surrounded by some of dowtown's biggest development projects, including the Sibley Building, The Metropolitan, the Windstream building, the new Democrat and Chronicle headquarters, and Tower280 at Midtown, whose residential rents will range from $2,000 to a whopping $4,000.

According to the Landmark Society, however:

Well now.

The block was named one of the Landmark Society's 2015 Five to Revive. According to local developer Patrick Dutton on an episode of Evan Dawson's Connections, there are currently talks about rehabbing the buildings into mixed-use development. Couldn't happen soon enough.
