Mid Towne Village is a mixed-use development offering a combination of different yet complimentary uses on a single defined site. The creation of this new walkable community within the fabric of an existing transitional neighborhood will help revitalize the immediate area and extend the medical & research influence of “Health Hill” to the east.
Building D, scheduled to be completed in 2007, is a 4-story medical office building fronting Michigan Ave. A restaurant and other retail businesses are planned for the street level, ensuring that the building will engage in the lives of the local residents throughout the day and evenings.
The buildings perceived architectural scale is reduced by stepping facades, providing canopies at the pedestrian level, and incorporating various colors and textures of finish materials.
