Made in Midtown 2009–2012

Made in Midtown showed how the Garment District supports design innovation, influencing the city's thinking about the neighborhood. Making Midtown, the project's second phase, created a vision for how the Garment District could revitalize its public realm and bolster its position as a fashion R&D hub.
