How to build a new urban renewal project in Detroit

A new urban redevelopment project in the Detroit area is being built in an area that was once a center for manufacturing and agriculture.

The Detroit Metropolitan Council announced Wednesday that it has approved a new plan to redevelop the abandoned Grand River Avenue at Grand Boulevard and Grand River Drive.

It includes a planned residential development, retail, a new hotel and a mixed-use development.

It would be the first residential and commercial development in the area since the area was known as “the Grand River Valley.”

The development is part of a $30 million program to revitalize the city of Detroit and surrounding neighborhoods.

The Grand River Development Corp. said it will pay for the development with private and public funds.

The city’s economic development agency said it was a major step toward creating an economically viable neighborhood.

“The development will bring jobs and economic activity to Grand River,” city spokesman Dave Keefe said in a statement.

The project would include 1,200 residential units, 1,000 commercial spaces and a hotel and restaurant, the council said.

The residential development will have a total of 1,400 units.

It will also include 400,000 square feet of retail space and 120,000 sq. ft. of office space.

The hotel will be an indoor/outdoor hotel with a rooftop deck, a gym and other amenities, according to the council.

The project is expected to be completed in 2018.

Construction is expected over the next six to eight years.
