10 Detroit neighborhood developments to watch

The Corner in Corktown

Most of Detroit’s development over the last five years has occurred in downtown or Midtown but now, development is slowly making its way into the neighborhoods. This map includes notable developments either underway or in the works outside of downtown and Midtown.

There are a few major developments not included, such as Ford’s investment in Corktown and the Packard Plant redevelopment. These will have major impacts not only in their neighborhoods, but in the city itself.

Also not included is Brush Park, a neighborhood that’s seen significant investment in the past couple years. This area sits in between downtown and Midtown, and will have hundreds of new residential units added in the next few years.

Many that were included here came about due to the city’s Strategic Neighborhood Fund, which aims to increase development boost investment in areas around the city. It started with three neighborhoods—the Villages, Livernois-6 Mile, and Southwest—and has expanded to more. We expect to see more plans in these neighborhoods in the coming years.
