Developing an economically sustainable retail revitalization strategy for Detroit

We were given the opportunity to craft a commercial corridor revitalization program aimed at identifying retail market conditions and opportunities in the city. Our approach was rooted in a comprehensive evaluation of the accessibility and availability of supply in 13 key neighborhoods.

Outcome

A comprehensive strategy devised to focus retail activity, investment, and development in centralized nodes, as well as a comprehensive marketing toolkit for property owners and entrepreneurs to reactivate Detroit’s once thriving retail corridors.
