The face of the Roosevelt Row Arts District has changed as new development moves in and galleries, businesses and shops adjust to changing people and costs.

Over the course of the past year, Fifth Street has faced five closures, along with more on neighboring Sixth Street. Fifth Street most recently saw the closure of Lawn Gnome. Take a look around Fifth Street today below by dragging your cursor to move the screen.

Over the course of a year, Fifth Street has faced changes month after month since August, when the first round of closures began with the Five15 Arts gallery and Lotus Contemporary Art gallery. The Flowers building where the galleries were located will be incorporated at the Blocks of Roosevelt Row development by Desert Viking. Closures and openings over this year can be found below.
