Downtown Phase II
What is Downtown Phase II?
The City is excited about the upcoming Downtown Phase II Expansion project that will build on the success of First & Main’s mixed-use development and capitalize on emerging market opportunities, such as the needs for downtown office and residential space. Hudson's Downtown Phase II Plan is to revitalize the underutilized area of Hudson's downtown. It will take full advantage of First and Main's assets to capitalize on emerging market opportunities.

What is the proposed timeline for the development project?
Ten years ago, City officials and a group of engaged citizens had the foresight to think long term with a vision to create a revitalized downtown core which transformed an industrial property into a full-scale shopping, dining and business experience drawing visitors from across Northeast Ohio and beyond. This vision also included a concept of a future Downtown Phase II which would expand the revitalization efforts to the publicly owned property at the corner of Owen Brown and Morse Roads.
