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.


No to " Bezu" Protect Downtown's
National Register Historic District!

Downtown’s northern edge is part of the Downtown National Register Historic District. Bezu, a high-rise tower is proposed for the midst of the neighborhood. New development should be compatible with the surrounding neighborhood & historic district – Bezu isn’t. Click here to read more and to send your message to City Council.
