Welcome to Midtown District
Where is Midtown District?
The Midtown District extends just north of East State Street to 9th Avenue on the south, and from Kishwaukee Street on the west to 11th Street on the east. It has many historical buildings including the old train depot and The Lantow Building which now houses the “Lantow Lofts” upscale condos.
Midtown also includes larger community stakeholders: Swedish American Hospital, U.S. Bank, and the headquarters for Rockford Public Schools District 205.
We are the one of the last truly neighborhood business districts left in Rockford, having many locally and family owned businesses mixed with residences.
