THE Market Street Revitalization Project
Decades ago, West Market Street - a main streetscape in York, flourished - served as a busy center for working, shopping, living, and entertainment. Sadly, several of the downtown buildings that once bustled with activity have sat vacant and deteriorating, adding blight and decay to the historically rich York City community.
Through the Market Street Revitalization Project, RSDC is helping York rebuild the West Market Street corridor, carrying out extensive renovation of some of the City's most prominent buildings.
