There's many empty streets in downtown Macon, but a residential study shows there's plenty of untapped potential that could add more residents to the area.
"I think that's a significant challenge for all of us to look at lofts downtown as an economic challenge and as our best economic opportunity," says Josh Rogers, Executive Director, Historic Macon.
Historic homes and loft living is appealing to the masses. A residential study conducted by an outside economist shows people want these options.
"Right now, we have a greater demand than we have a supply. More people want to live in downtown than we have room to live downtown," says Kris Hattaway, Director of Place, NewTown Macon.
