Building For The Future

By creating the place people want to be, we are creating an unprecedented opportunity for investment in our Downtown Community. Developers are responding to increased demands for residential, office and hotel space propelled by strong population and job growth. Now is the time to invest in Downtown Anchorage.

Anchorage Downtown Partnership’s vision is to be the catalyst for development in Downtown Anchorage. Our board of Directors and staff are committed to achieving this vision for Downtown Anchorage.

With that involves a creative outlook into the future of our community generating ideas, exploring different options, advocating for spaces in need of development, and connecting the dots to make it all happen. We believe partnerships with municipal, state and private sectors is the way to help move this forward.

This concept of a market front strategy creates a curated shopping experience, with a focus on farm to table/water to table, renewable, sustainable, local goods. These shops are usually multi-generational, local businessmen and women who help create a high-quality shopping experience with a little bit of funk factor that cannot the found in large retail chain experiences.

A key factor to the success of the Market upgrade is the spillover effect onto D street and the connection with our wonderful neighbors at the 5th ave Mall, JcPenny and Nordstrom. Imagine a well lit, covered walkway sharing the space along the arts studios, music venues, restaurants, with ample parking just a block away.
