A team of developers has secured a deal to purchase the long-vacant Lee Plaza on Detroit’s west side, once one of Detroit’s grandest luxury residences, and convert the building into a mix of market-rate and affordable housing, with construction anticipated to begin in 2021.
Pending approval from Detroit City Council, the City of Detroit will sell the City-owned building, empty since 1997, to a venture formed by the Roxbury Group and Ethos Development Partners, both of whom have led large-scale renovation projects in the city.
Nothing bonds Detroiters quite like music,
The Neighborhoods and Eastern Market teamed up this year for Detroit’s Best Home Cook, a cooking contest where amateur chefs had to use local ingredients to craft their favorite dish for a panel of judges. See a video of the contest here, also airing on Comcast Channel 21.
For the science fair, most kids will do a traditional experiment like making a volcano explode.
If you’re like me, you may have spent more than a few times snacking on frozen cookie dough at home on the couch, despite FDA warnings that raw cookie dough is not safe to consume. Having repeatedly ignored those warnings, I was thrilled to find out that Detroit is getting its own cookie dough café in the NW Goldberg neighborhood.
For our inaugural Detroit’s Best Home Cook contest, we have two sweet entries from two young Detroiters who are also trying to give back to their communities.
At The Neighborhoods, we’re interested in hearing from everybody in Detroit about what matters most to you.
