Two New Developments Planned For Detroit
Urban Village One Of Revitalization Projects

POSTED: 11:17 pm EST January 19, 2006
UPDATED: 12:01 am EST January 20, 2006

A neighborhood revitalization project is getting under way.

The DaimlerChrysler Corp. has given $100,000 to the Arab American and Chaldean Council.

The money will be used for the 7 Mile Development Project to create a Middle Eastern community.

It is expected to include restaurants and bakeries along 7 Mile Road between Woodward Avenue and John R. Road.

And the development doesn't stop there. In downtown Detroit, General Motors is moving forward on a massive, mixed-use project on 13 acres along the Detroit River.

The hopes are that it is the first step in transforming a formerly industrial spot into metro Detroit's newest trendy residential area.

Artists put together renderings to show the urban village GM hopes to create.

The new neighborhood is bound by the Detroit River to the south, Franklin to the north, Beaubien to the west, and Rivard to the east.

If all goes as planned, Detroit's newest addresses could be ready for move-in by late 2007.

However, there is still the matter of rezoning the area in Detroit, which could take until the end of the year, Local 4 reported.

Detroit River East Partners is handling the financing and construction of the project. The group is responsible for the Skylofts and Main Place in Royal Oak.

This is great to see, especially with all the focus that has been on Downtown. I know that it is important to have the big projects, but what really needs work in the neighborhoods.

I hope that the individual buildings are unique to eachother, to give it a real community feel. Maybe they should even have seperate architects develop each building individually (but given a general vision) to make it more natural.
