An Artist live-work district in the historic woodland heights neighborhood
What is a Live Work District?
A place of creativity, first and foremost. It's home to artists and creative people who enjoy a sense of community. The Live-Work Overlay Zoning adopted by the City of Springfield allows an artist who lives in the district to operate studios in their homes and have a limited retail presence.
Moon City is 10 square blocks of residential, commercial and industrial real estate. Our residents can live, work and create all from the same location. Some mediums presently represented are: painting (watercolor, oil, acrylic), lamp work, and hot-glass, textile, musicians and composers, writers, pottery, woodwork, sculpture, mixed media, handmade books, sketch artists and sign maker.
Historic Lafayette Park was platted in 1868. It is one of the two oldest parks in the Springfield-Greene County Park System. Lafayette is central to many activities in Moon City and the Woodland Heights Neighborhood. Moon City is walking distance from restaurants, shopping and nightlife along Historic C-Street. Choose from several restaurants, coffee shops, and unique clothing and home furnishing stores.
