The District Detroit
With 6 major entertainment venues within just a few blocks of one another, there was no cohesive pedestrian network connecting them. Our team knew the power of creating walkable streets and open spaces, and we envisioned the role this transformation would play in the overall revitalization of the city.

Situated between bustling downtown Detroit and eclectic Midtown, The District Detroit bridges the gap of formerly vacant land with a dynamic entertainment destination. It isn’t a series of massive venues scattered across the 60 blocks, it is a series of new, mixed use neighborhoods, each anchored by the city’s best sports and entertainment venues, including the new Little Caesars Arena, Fox Theatre, Comerica Park, and Ford Field, all linked together with a rich network of walkable streets and open spaces.
Both durable and richly detailed, The District Detroit landscape reflects the toughness, vitality, and beauty of the city itself. Once inhospitable and daunting, the prospect of walking the streets is now inviting. Downtown and Midtown are linked, not simply with new spaces and corridors, but with people.
