First Block

Help Protect “First Block”
Where it all started for the ‘Burg!

Downtown’s First Block, home to the 1888 Detroit Hotel & Jannus Live, is threatened by the owner’s desire to redevelop the block with high rise buildings. Designating the block as a local historic district is the best way to protect its history and to keep it special. Click here to read more to send your message to City Council.


Yes to a Driftwood
Neighborhood Historic District!
Driftwood, a small but special neighborhood south of 22nd Ave. S. along Big Bayou. Recently, its most historic home, the Gandy Home (“Mullet Farm”) was sold & demolished. The best way to ensure the rest of the neighborhood stays special is to designate it as a historic district. Click here to read more and to send your message to City Council.

Mirror Lake

Protect Downtown's National Register
Historic District & Mirror Lake

The area around Mirror Lake is a special area within the Downtown National Register Historic District. A high-rise tower is proposed across the street from the 1916 library. New development should be compatible with the neighborhood & historic district – this tower won't be. Click here to read more & to send your message to City Council.
