TThe Historic Northwest
district is perfectly positioned for rebirth. Located just north of downtown, the neighborhood boundaries extend from Banyan to Palm Beach Lakes, west to Tamarind Avenue and east to Rosemary Avenue. The Northwest is rich with history and culture.
Predominantly residential, the majority of the area is designated as a historic district. Two commercial north-south corridors, Rosemary and Tamarind, form the borders of the neighborhood. In 2011, the CRA and a group of stakeholders collaborated to create an Action Plan that focused redevelopment activities in six areas; business development, trans
portation, residential development, marketing and branding, security and capital improvements. The improvement program includes new street scape along the7th Street corridor. In addition, the entire Tamarind Corridor will be realigned and resurfaced from Banyan to Palm Beach Lakes.
The Historic Northwest is ideally positioned to become a cross-cultural destination with the planned historic restoration of the famed Sunset Ballroom and Lounge (8th Street and Henrietta) and the development of a related Jazz Park and other assets.
