  • Former Midtown garage to be renovated into office space

    Midtown Renaissance set to renovate one of their old auto shop buildings at 220 NW 13th into small spaces for entrepreneurs. Plans were submitted to the Downtown Design Review Committee on Friday.

    Chris Fleming of MidtownR provided this quote:

    “It was urbanist Jane Jacobs who wrote, ‘A lively city scene is lively largely by virtue of the collection of small elements and in particular its commercial diversity.’ We feel that the Make Ready Building personifies this thought.”

    “The Make Ready Building provides commercial space to the small-tenant market segment that currently has limited options in Midtown. This building could house startup companies that come out of the Thunder Launchpad or the Innovation District or i2E. Maybe it’s home to a two- or four- or six- person office or maybe a workshop and retail space for a group of artisan makers.”

    “Companies and their employees want to be in Midtown. The Make Ready Building ensures that companies of all sizes can be here.”
