How will the Phase II development blend with First and Main and the surrounding neighborhoods?

The City is committed to maintaining the look and feel of the Western Reserve architecture and character of the downtown. The First and Main Development (Phase I) overcame unique challenges as the project was directly abutting the National Register Historic District. The Phase II project requires the same attention to design to ensure the final project looks and feels a part of the downtown. Based on additional site analysis and public feedback, the scale has been reduced from three to four stories to two and three-story buildings. Specific attention will be paid to the architectural design and placement of buildings near Owen Brown Street and the Villas of Hudson. Click here for the Downtown Building Height Study.
