Redevelopment of the Globe Trading Company building adjacent to Tricentennial State Park should be jump-started by this effort:

The city of Detroit received a total of $800,000 in grants...

One of Detroit's grants will be used to clean up three properties: the Spare Time Family Entertainment Center site at 11600-11736 E. Jefferson Ave., the Sears Retail Store and Auto Service Center site at 10750 Grand River Ave., and the Globe Building at 1801-1803 Atwater St. Once they are cleaned up, the three locations will be used for retail and entertainment venues, housing and green space. The second Detroit grant is for assessment of 28 sites in the Eastern Market Project Area, where the city's plans include a year-round marketplace, stores and restaurants integrated into the larger neighborhood.
