The District Detroit will be 50 blocks of thriving businesses, restaurants, bars, event destinations and parks, home to families, the young and the young at heart, new residents and long-timers who want to be where the action is. The District will connect Downtown and Midtown into one contiguous, walkable area where opportunities for families, sports fans, entrepreneurs, job seekers, entertainment lovers and those who crave a vibrant urban setting can connect to each other and the city they have always loved.

Imagine a Detroit, as it once was. Imagine a Detroit as it can be again.
