Columbia Street to Bring New Shopping and Dining to The District Detroit


The District Detroit’s Columbia Street is set to be the city’s latest retail destination bringing new restaurants and shops to serve Tigers fans and many others west of Woodward between the historic Fox Theatre and the new, nine-story Little Caesars headquarters expansion. The block-long, pedestrian-friendly strip will have ten new storefronts in one of The District Detroit’s busiest areas.

Columbia Street is bringing nearly 40,000 square feet of new retail and will feature a variety of dining options among several restaurants as well as a European-style promenade boasting Cobblestone paving, festoon lights and al fresco dining space.

The first of the new retail tenants will open their doors this year.

The progress comes with new milestones in The District Detroit, including the anticipated opening of the Little Caesars headquarters and the new Mike Ilitch School of Business building at Wayne State University, made possible by a historic $40 million donation from the Ilitch family.
