We demonstrate to other investors and developers that it is possible to develop attractive, affordable residential units downtown, support businesses which make living and working downtown convenient and interesting, restore and maintain our historic buildings cost-effectively, and still generate a reasonable return on investment. Our model can be replicated. A comprehensive investment strategy focused on supporting a downtown residential revival works. The strategy is particularly effective at a time when people are increasingly tired of the frustrations associated with sprawl, traffic, and not having enough time . . . for anything. The quest for community and manageable lifestyles is bringing people downtown, with its unique and diverse opportunities for shopping, working and living.
