This development has spurred new heights for Evansville’s future. Evansville Mayor, Lloyd Winnecke says the development is “an enormous statement of confidence about the direction of Evansville. It’s exciting to add the 5th & Main tower to this extraordinary chapter of our city’s history…The investment into our city’s tallest building and the exciting vision of the developer will reinforce downtown as a destination for living, shopping, and dining.” In addition, Josh Armstrong, President of the Downtown Evansville Economic Improvement District says, “Retail follows rooftops…More residents mean more restaurants, more shops, more nightlife.”
