Potential Land Use Changes

The greatest potential for future land use changes is north of the downtown campus and along Edgewood Avenue. Current development density is relatively low. There are also sites in the Fairlie-Poplar district possibly favorable to changes through displacement of existing uses.

  • • Permits for construction are required on leased properties only.
  • • Part of Edgewood Avenue, including #184, is in the Martin Luther King, Jr. historic district.
  • • The “rights” to the exterior of Haas-Howell and Standard Building have been sold.
  • • 35 Broad Street is on the National Register for Historic Buildings (currently the J. Mack Robinson College of Business). This restricts modifications to the bank lobby and to the exterior of the building.
