The village offers destination retail, office space, and housing supported by structured parking within a historic main street environment. This successful live-work village is connected to surrounding neighborhoods, Downtown, and the Medical District.

In 2018, Magnolia Avenue was recognized by the American Planning Association as one of its "Great Places in America":

The rapid pace of investment and development activity on Magnolia and throughout the Near Southside district is a clear indication that the strategies of placemaking, walkability, urban design, and a strong culture of support for local business are paying off. Overall, 30 years of steady investment and improvements have ensured access and safety for residents, workers, and visitors. Read more
