A decade ago, people had to be convinced by the idea of moving downtown. Now with visible revitalization in place, people are now more eager than ever to explore the area and call it home. The revitalization of downtown businesses and neighborhoods has pushed buyers to purchase historic homes in the area with the intent to restore or remodel them. Also with growing demand to live downtown, restoration efforts have extended to the high-rise scene as investors buy rundown apartment buildings and breathe new life into them, encouraging further growth in the area.
The first phase of the city's $30 million beautification project will encompass the area from Las Vegas Boulevard to the south and east, Main Street to the west, and Stewart Avenue to the North. It is set to begin construction in early 2014.
