Name a part of history
The Midtown Rising implementation team has received more than 200 suggestions from the public to name the new street and plaza created by the redevelopment of the Midtown site. Upon City Council approval, the new plaza space will be called Midtown Commons and the new street will be called Andrew Langston Way.
- The plaza (Area A on the map below) is a .58 acre parcel that lies between S. Clinton Ave. (next to the Windstream building) and the new street. The new plaza is designed to be used for events and everyday enjoyment by Downtown residents, workers and visitors. It includes seating areas, a paved plaza, a lawn area and a grove of trees.
- The new street (Area B on the map below) will begin at East Main Street opposite the Liberty Pole and run south to Elm Street.
The new names will be forwarded to the City Planning Commission for their consideration and then to City Council, which will make the final approval on the new names.
