Schemes proposed for adaptive reuse of historical Clinton Theater
Scheme A: Clinton Place (mixed-use complex)
Scheme B: Clinton Park (urban playground)
Scheme C: Clinton Market (year-round farmers’ market)
Located at the heart of Clintonville, Clinton Theater used to be the place to be. Community members had fond memories; people remembered seeing their first motion pictures there. This historic structure, however, was left vacant and deteriorated and it faced the fate of demolition. Three schemes were proposed as adaptive reuse of the building, juxtaposing modern design with historical building as a way to create a new landmark.
