Downtown Revitalization Proposal Aired -- Duluth Patch

A Sandy Springs-based company has proposed entering into a public-private partnership with Duluth to revitalize its downtown.

Cheri Morris, president of Morris & Fellows, outlined a plan at a joint meeting of the Duluth City Council and Downtown Development Authority on Monday (December 17) that would focus on the Old City Hall Block, now referred to as “The Block.”

The Red Clay Theatre would serve as the anchor for a restaurant and entertainment district with retail shops, offices above the stores, residences, and possibly a boutique hotel. The alley between Main Street shops and the warehouse would be lined with restaurants.
