Retail on Livernois, Downtown

According to Crain's, business owners along Livenois hope to restore the Avenue of Fashion. With the help of the Independent Retailers Association of Detroit, a new nonprofit, and the Detroit Economic Growth Corporation, they are working to fill vacant storefronts and create a blueprint for revitalization that can be replicated in other areas of the city.

An editorial in Crain's co-authored by leaders of the Urban Land Institute Detroit call for a public-private effort to bring more retail Downtown. A similar approach is now being taken in the development of Eastern Market.
