This corner of the neighborhood within Southwest Detroit is home to a young and diverse population of 16,000. The intersection of Elsmere and Avis streets has a storied history of active street economies operating in close proximity to the neighborhood's homes and parks. With support from architects and artists, the youth and residents of the neighborhood will design a new building, plaza, and green space to serve as a permanent facility that fosters entrepreneurial activity among local residents. Redevelopment of this real estate and corner will provide a supportive space for community members, visitors, and artists to create and build socio-economic capital.
