26 Apr Mapping the developments in the works in and around New Center
Source: Curbed Detroit
One neighborhood that will change dramatically over the next few years is New Center. Anchored by the Fisher Building, new construction and renovations are well underway in the neighborhood and surrounding areas. While plenty of redevelopment is still happening in Midtown, the momentum seems to be shifting just north into this centralized neighborhood.
We first made this map at the beginning of 2018. Since so much has been announced, we’re already updating the map.
For this map, we included a few projects in areas just outside the neighborhood proper. Lee Plaza, which will finally see redevelopment, is about a mile down West Grand Boulevard. Moving toward New Center, we’re also seeing the expansion of the Motown Museum and a new cancer center through Henry Ford.
We also hopped across Woodward Avenue (where we expect to see a lot of retail soon), and over to Chroma, or the building with the Illuminated Mural.
Much of the new construction is centered around Tech Town. There we see the new Pistons training facility, plus large renovation and construction projects in the works.
