The Neighborhood

What is the relationship between Milwaukee Avenue and its surrounding neighborhood? A thriving main street is more than a destination, it is an integral part of the neighborhood. How do we analyze the market potential of the neighborhood, taking into account future growth and possible density changes? What is the population that can easily access the street, and do the services and amenities it provides match the services the neighborhood requires? What services are needed, and can they be sustained by the expected future growth of the neighborhood?
