Parts of downtown South Bend getting a face-lift


Parts of downtown South Bend are getting a facelift.  Some old buildings have been renovated into apartments.  City officials were at one of the buildings Thursday morning to get a first-hand look.

Mayor Pete Buttigieg says that downtown South Bend is heading in the right direction for 2014.  "We have more going on with restaurants, shops, with cafes but at the end of the day you need people living downtown in order to want to be shopping and dining and playing downtown," says Buttigieg.

Buttigieg went on to say that recent programs like the Pop-Up Shops have helped to bring a new vibrancy to the area.
