Detroit – Motor City Resurgence
Through the middle of the 20th century, Detroit was one of the best examples of American ingenuity and opportunity. Since then, the city has lost a sizable percentage of its population and an even greater part of its tax base. In the last ten years however, the city has experienced a resurgence, fueled in part by a combination of major government initiatives, a commitment of big business and many smaller (but equally important) projects undertaken by less well-known developers.
This ULI panel will explore many of the factors that have led to Detroit’s resurgence. Representatives from government, the commercial real estate sector and academia will examine several of the projects that have fueled the success Detroit is now experiencing, as well as some of the challenges and opportunities the city will face going forward.
