Detroit in Transition – A plan to move Detroit Forward
(Part 2 of 8)
Detroit has the best opportunity to take advantage of abandoned buildings due to their location near highways, waterways and other resources. So, how can we turn these buildings into something useful? The various properties around the city are well documented in terms of condition and ownership. Now the City must determine the most viable opportunities for Detroit's vacant real estate and abandoned buildings, while at the same time, remove the red tape to redevelop the properties. This includes removing barriers to acquire abandoned property and turn it into a viable piece of property. Perhaps that will be one of Mayor Duggan's top priorities.
