Waverly Main Street is the historic commercial corridor on Greenmount Avenue from East 29th Street to East 35th Street. It is surrounded by four diverse and engaged neighborhoods – Abell, Better Waverly, Oakenshawe and Waverly. These communities have active associations that regularly partner with Waverly Main Street. When Memorial Stadium closed in the late 1990s, the area experienced major disinvestment and the business district suffered. Through dedicated residents, business owners, neighboring institutions and local nonprofits, like Waverly Main Street, the area is beginning to be revitalized. In 2013, Waverly Main Street was designated on the National Register of Historic Places and has over 100 businesses within its boundaries, including the newly renovated Waverly Branch of the Enoch Pratt Free Library. Within the upcoming year, Waverly Main Street will be working on extensive landscaping and beautification efforts as well as major façade improvements and development projects.
