Detroit, the largest city in Michigan, is home to more than 670,000 residents and is considered the nation’s hub of automotive manufacturing. “Motor City,” as it is otherwise known, is home to a diverse workforce and economy. It is also home to a strong health care system, several major sports teams, and a distinct urban experience.

Although Detroit has faced some economic challenges, the city is poised for growth. The Detroit Economic Growth Corporation works closely with developers and companies seeking growth opportunities to provide business development incentives, such as tax incentives, loan assistance and TIF reimbursement for activities such as remediation, demolition, site preparation, and public infrastructure improvements. The Detroit Economic Growth Corporation is working to transform the city’s downtown through projects such as Campus Martius Park – an award-winning public gathering space – and by creating neighborhoods from industrial zones along the East Riverfront. Its ultimate goal is to attract new businesses and jobs to the city.

The revitalization of Detroit creates unique opportunities for commercial real estate as residents and businesses return to the downtown core. The downtown population is expected to increase as new residential inventory is developed, according to real estate services firm JLL, and there is a robust pipeline of business investment, specifically in office, education, infrastructure, and public use space.

Millennials make up nearly a third of the downtown population, creating a built-in workforce that resides in the city’s urban core. A recent report by ZipRecruiter named Detroit as the 16th fastest growing tech town in the U.S., creating employment opportunities for the city’s young workforce. The automotive industry’s resurgence and growth in the technology industry should continue to bolster the commercial real estate industry well into the future.
