Crosstown

The heart of the Crosstown neighborhood sits at the intersection of Watkins Street and North Parkway. In fact, it can’t be missed. The 1.5 million-square-foot Crosstown Concourse was constructed in 1927 as a Sears flagship location. Shuttered in the early 1990s, it has been recently reimagined as a mixed-use, vertical village with apartments, businesses, nonprofits, restaurants, health services, and more cohabitating in the same building. The neighborhood is also boasts some of the city’s most beloved bars and restaurants and is a popular social and creative destination with ventures like Amurica, Crosstown Arts, and the OAM podcast studio.
