DETROIT — September 21, 2022 — The Downtown Detroit Partnership (DDP) will host its signature event and Fall Stakeholder Meeting at Sound Board at MotorCity Casino Hotel. The event will be held Wed., Sept. 28 from 3-5:30 p.m.

A second chat with Laura Grannemann, executive director of the Gilbert Family  Foundation will also take place. 

“Despite a global pandemic and a shifting workforce population, Downtown Detroit continues to evolve in resourceful ways,” said Eric B. Larson, DDP’s CEO. “This meeting aims to not only  put our Downtown on display, but also our collective progress through the proverbial storms.” 

During the event, all participants will receive the DDP’s newly released development report,  which details the recently completed, current and forthcoming commercial real estate projects in Downtown Detroit. This year’s report will also include the significant investments in community and public spaces, infrastructure and mobility. 

Following the 60-minute program, a networking reception will take place, at which attendees can speak with and watch developers’ live presentations. The DDP will also debut its development dashboard, illustrating the latest data on Downtown Detroit’s economic vitality,  population and more. 

The DDP Fall Stakeholder Meeting is sponsored by KPMG, DTE Foundation, JPMorgan Chase and RAM Construction.
