Motor City lockdown downtown looking decidedly lonely during the COVID-19 shelter in place state of emergency March 2020.

Brush Park too looking quiet but the City Modern made good progress over the winter is a great preview of what the neighborhood will look like once the last areas of infill come into play over the next couple years.

The skyline looks better than I’ve ever seen it. Filling in Meridian/Former Compuware building adds more than I thought it would, and the Book Tower certainly looks gorgeous. Thanks for posting.

I saw this historic Corktown home dating to 1848 for sale but what really caught my eye was the accompanying photo tour.

A good ‘ole slice of Detroit’s old eastside preserved as the enclave of Hamtramck the south side of which is in focus here. The area has a long and colorful history of being a stop of first choice for many new immigrants to the motor city, once a Polish stronghold along with neighboring Poletown Detroit. Recent years have seen waves of middle eastern, south asian and eastern europe (mainly from Muslim regions of former Yugoslavia but also some Ukrainians). This make up has created one of the most interesting communities in the region. Truly a unique concoction a cosmopolitan working class city with a strong community pride it’s arts and cultural scene is vibrant with a low key national reputation. Last but not least downtown Hamtown has culinary reputation with a draw that extends beyond paczki and kielbasa lovers.

The controversial GM Poletown plant pictured in the background was built at the cost of Detroit’s Poletown in the 80s the remaining Polish neighbored on the Detroit side which at the time was vibrant fell into decay after eminent domain was used once again as an urban renewal tool.

This was first posted on detroityes by 313rd and then on the compilation page but it’s definitely worth cataloging on this thread as it’s a great capture of the progress being made on downtowns two newest high-rises.

“The Towns at The Corner” development around the historic tiger stadium field has been making progress to the point where we can get an idea of the finished product.

I really like how The Towns at The Corner & Elton Park meld together creating a relatively seemless dense pocket urban pocket in a corner of Corktown that was neglected due to its isolated location near the I-75 - Lodge Freeway interchange.
A possible glimpse of the direction Corktown is heading in that fits well with its historic character.

An announcement was made recently regarding the last phase of the project will begin construction filling in the NW corner of the site soon.

I like scoping real estate pages for pics that you just can’t take yourself without a certain allocation of resources but sometimes I end up getting real pissed off like with this one the house marker ruins an otherwise dope skyline view from the Richard-Hubbard neighborhood.

Russell Woods is a key neighborhood in terms of linking the urban core of greater downtown and surrounding neighborhoods with the university district and by extension the urban friendly woodward corridor suburbs. Livernois is beginning to very similar on both sides of 8 mile a vibrant shopping district. There’s still a ways to go but the Joe Louis Greenway and the Fitzgerald Neighborhood revitalization project will go a long way to better tying these important areas together.

A place near and dear to heart Old Redford it’s a small downtown area in NW Detroit with a funky artist community that knows how to throw a party.
