The last few years have seen big changes in downtown Tyler. Properties that sat untouched for years, even decades, have new owners with new visions. Over 150 planned apartment units are answering deep demand for downtown housing. A vibrant weekend farmer’s market brings foot traffic along Broadway, and an eclectic mix of indie shops beckons from across the street. Meanwhile, city projects like the Innovation Pipeline and free garage parking reflect new kinds of city investment in our downtown core.
Will all this activity going on, it can be hard to keep track. The Tyler Loop has put together this guide to major downtown developments since the start of 2016, and we’ll be adding to it over time. Click a location to read about it, or just scroll down. This map is made possible by reporting from local daily news outlets; we’ve linked to their stories in the items below.
