SLC: I can see, with the proper investment, this becoming a trendy district, similar to Short North on a smaller scale. There is a good building stock in existance, and infill development could be heavily promoted. Thank you Mayor Fellinton to looking ahead, being bold, and ignoring all the critics who never visit the downtown or partake in any activities there.

HUNTINGTON -- City officials on Tuesday unveiled a revamped version of a redevelopment project for 4th Avenue that aims to provide a better link between Marshall University's campus and the downtown.

Hmm. This looks promising. There always did seem to be a sort of "dead area" between downtown proper and the Marshall campus. Maybe if they infilled some University housing along with businesses it would induce that connection to downtown very effectively. This would be somewhat similar to what VCU has done pretty effectively in Richmond, linking downtown to the West End.

Thanks for the update on this, seicer! This is something that's been in the works for quite some time. That stretch of 4th Avenue is just dead from what I recall during my last visits. Even as a kid, the only thing that remember taking me to that part of town was Glenn's Sporting Goods.
