"We're really talking about millenials, people in their 20's plus or minus. And we're talking about the other end of the spectrum, empty nesters," Action Committee Co-chair Chuck Pell said. Students from UIS or SIU could also be another group looking for a downtown living experience.
At the downtown farmer's market this Saturday, visitors can see display designs created by several architects. They offer their vision of what downtown properties could become, with a focus on residential opportunities.
