Downtown and Central Avenue

Downtown and Central Avenue have been discovered, and development pressure is threatening their look, scale, and feel. Special places like First Block (home of the 1888 Detroit Hotel, above), Central Avenue's charming 600 Block, and the one-of-a-kind Mirror Lake neighborhood are at risk.
