Updating the Map of Mid-Market Revitalization Projects

View as Map

Last week we published a map of 26 Mid-Market revitalization projects. Thanks to some tipsters and a little more digging we can now update the map to 34 projects that are currently underway on the stretch of Market that makes up the Mid-Market neighborhood. New additions include a nearly completed remodel that'll transform a historic theater into a rent-a-desk style office space, and UN Plaza's renovation that's shooting for LEED Platinum status. We know the area is a crazy hub of activity right now, so leave a comment after the jump or send a note to the tipline if we still missed a project that you would like to know more about.
[Update: A more recent map with more updates is now available here]
