Downtown to blossom (again), four big projects slated for “Market District”

A new crop of development is about to sprout up on the western edge of downtown, bringing with it a proposed 493,000 square feet of office space, 70,000 square feet of retail and 370 apartments.

Schlosser Development Corp., the dominant player in the area, is behind much of the new plans in the Market District, as the area around Sixth Street and North Lamar Boulevard has come to be called.
