Corktown is an old neighborhood west of Downtown Detroit. It is the oldest neighborhood in the city that is still there. The district is currently bounded by I-75 in the north, the Lodge Freeway in the east, Bagley and Porter streets in the south, and 12th Street and Rosa Parks Boulevard in the west. In 1978, the National Register of Historic Places put the neighborhood on its list.
The Corktown Historic District is mostly made up of homes, but it also has some commercial buildings along Michigan Avenue. The residential section is on the National Register of Historic Places and is called the City of Detroit Historic District. There are many newer homes in the neighborhood, and some of the original Irish businesses are still there.
Since 2005, there have been a number of projects to improve Corktown. These include the Irish Plaza, which was built by the United Irish Societies and opened in 2006, the 66,000-square-foot Quicken Loans Technology Center, which opened in 2015, and the Detroit Police Athletic League (PAL) headquarters and youth sports facility, which was built in 2016 on the site of the old Tiger Stadium at Michigan and Trumbull Avenues. The Corner, a $37 million mixed-use development with 111 apartments and 34 townhomes for sale, started construction in early 2018 next to the PAL facility. Also in 2016, the $10 million renovation of the Trumbull & Porter hotel led to the opening of the new Trumbull & Porter boutique hotel. In 2017, Soave Enterprises began building Elton Park, a $150 million mixed-use project with 420 apartments that will be built in several phases over several years.
The Ford Motor Company bought, fixed up, and moved into The Factory building at Michigan Avenue and Rosa Parks Boulevard in 2017 to start building an urban campus in Corktown. This was a big step toward redeveloping the area. Ford bought more land in Corktown in the future, including the Michigan Central Station and the Roosevelt Warehouse, which was right next to it. Ford wants to build a new campus in Corktown for $740 million. It will include 1.2 million square feet of mixed-use buildings in the Michigan Central Station, Roosevelt Warehouse, and the Factory building at 1907 Michigan Avenue. It will also build a new 290,000-square-foot, four-story building called “The Alchemy” on the empty site of the former brass factory building at 2051 Rosa Parks Blvd. Ford also said that they were going to build two new parking garages.
