WHERE DETROIT COMES TOGETHER

Related Companies, Olympia Development of Michigan (ODM) and the City of Detroit announced plans to begin an extensive Community Benefits Ordinance (CBO) process for a multi-building development in The District Detroit. The CBO process marks the next phase of plans to build new residential with affordable housing, new office, retail, hotel, and public space across 10 properties in The District Detroit, aimed at attracting and retaining talent and inclusive economic development in Detroit and Michigan.

The proposed development includes construction of six new buildings and the renovation and adaptive reuse of four historic buildings. The mix and type of proposed projects reflect significant initial feedback from the developers’ continued community engagement, which will continue through the the city-led community benefits process.
