Although the pandemic stopped us in our tracks and put billions of dollars in projects on hold, we saw Downtown go through phases of transition and continue to see a sea of change in how residents and visitors live and interact with downtowns across the nation. Seeing this and looking at the data, we pivoted and changed our tactics. We remained diligent to work in lockstep with our partners to ensure our Downtown not only survived but thrived.

That diligence will be on display during our Fall Stakeholder Meeting, where more than 250 leaders gather each year to learn what has, is, and will happen with development in Downtown Detroit, and – spoiler alert – the news is good. Our event will take place on Wed., Sept. 28 at Soundboard at MotorCity Casino Hotel. This year’s meeting is loaded with our latest development report, fireside chats with downtown developers and more. See below for complete details, or click here to register.

Lastly, in this article I share a sneak peek as to why our collaborative efforts have enticed many developers to put their stakes in the ground of Detroit.

A lot more news and events follow.
See you around Downtown.
