TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Tallahassee city officials are sharing updates on projects in the greater Frenchtown and Southside areas. 

A citizens' advisory committee met Monday at the Renaissance Center. 

The meeting involved the CRA, the Community Redevelopment Agency.

One of the topics was to get this committee up to speed about projects the CRA approved last year. At this point, eight are complete, and 19 are in progress. 

Here's a quick look at some of them.

One project still in the works isn't far from here. Developers are figuring out what to do with the site of the old shelter and community center on Macomb and Tennessee.

The initial plan was to add retail and office space, as well as housing and parking.

The update here is that developers should have public planning sessions early this year. 

And let's talk about Railroad Square really quickly.

One project wants to add apartment space to a building there for artists to live and work out of. Construction should start next month.

And finally, The Yards at Railroad Square is a project that would renovate a warehouse and turn it into an "indoor artisanal food market."

At this point, developers are thinking about changing the scope of that project. 

We'll be talking about development a little more this week.

On Wednesday, WTXL Reporter Stephen Jiwanmall will have a special "Building Tallahassee" report about projects on the city's Northside.
