Downtown Waco is definitely going through a growth spurt right now, with a number of developments underway. It’s hard to keep up with what is happening where, so we’ve created a little cheat sheet of the major current projects for you. If you’ve got family in town for the holidays, drive them around and tell them what’s what. They’ll be impressed with your downtown knowledge and hopefully with Waco’s strides too!
