No...I think for that very reason downtown will continue to be the primary historic central city. Both are becoming a strong combination of residential, office, and hotel/tourism and the connection between the two will eventually become seamless. Downtown is still the more densely-built of the two, but Midtown is filling in those empty lots at a very fast pace. If some of the big downtown projects get off the ground we will see the boom move that way a bit, but Midtown looks to continue its boom into the foreseeable future.
