Currently, the corner is occupied by the old Mays-Munroe building, which has not been in use for years. The owners of the Sheraton hotel plan to demolish the building and start fresh and are inviting public ideas for what they would like to see there.
“The downtown corridor is a vibrant, historic and diverse district, and we have the opportunity to make this space into something really meaningful and exciting,” said hotel general manager Bo Schmitz. “I am thrilled at the response from the community, and I urge everyone to get their ideas in before November 22.”
Please take a moment to contribute your idea to the list below. So far, suggestions for the space include a restaurant, dessert spot, pub, parking garage, music venue or art gallery/cultural center.
