Villages Catalyst Project
Detroit, MI (2014)

Building upon momentum along Detroit's East Jefferson Avenue and in The Villages neighborhood, this placemaking project supports emerging businesses, development opportunities and cultural activities on the commercial block along East Jefferson between Seminole Street and Iroquois Street. This collaborative project included a series of workshops, meetings and events throughout 2014 that investigated this area as a model for the East Jefferson corridor. The project focuses on urban design and real estate development strategies.
