"District 5 is the epicenter of culture, education, business, entertainment and medicine." - Councilwoman Mary Sheffield

WE ARE LAFAYETTE PARK

Our neighborhood has been hailed as "one of the most spatially successful and socially significant statements in urban renewal" and as a "prototype for future urban development predicated on human values." The site contains the largest collection of buildings by the architect Mies van der Rohe in the world, as well as the only group of row houses built to his specifications. Lafayette Park remains one of the most stable neighborhoods in the City of Detroit, with a committed community of residents. Some have lived in the neighborhood since its founding while others have recently moved in and have taken active roles within the neighborhood and beyond.
