Officially launched in the spring of 2014, the Downtown Detroit Business Improvement Zone (BIZ) provides services including cleaning, safety, hospitality, Downtown lighting and landscaping for residents, visitors and businesses. Assessments of over 550 commercial properties support the $4 million budget that enables DDP and the BIZ to serve the Downtown community in these important ways.

The Downtown Detroit BIZ delivers supplemental services that residents, Downtown workers, visitors, and business and property owners rely on every day.

BIZ Area

The BIZ encompasses 140 city blocks in a 1.1 square mile area stretching between three major highways and the Detroit River.
