First released in early 2013, 7.2 SQ MI is the data story of a changing place. This updated version is a new snapshot that captures current information on residing, working, employing, visiting, living, playing, and investing in Greater Downtown. It helps us to understand where we were, where we are, and offers a glimpse into where we are going. It contextualizes Greater Downtown Detroit within the city, region, and country. It recognizes progress made in addressing some of the city’s challenges, while also highlighting opportunities for new successes.
