Downtown Detroit is both the center of business in the city of Detroit, Michigan and a place where people live. Locals usually call the 1.4-square-mile area west of M-10 (Lodge Freeway), north of I-75 (I-75, Fisher Freeway), east of I-375 (Chrysler Freeway), and south of the Detroit River downtown. It could also be talking about the Greater Downtown area, which is 7.2 square miles and includes places like Midtown, Corktown, Rivertown, and Woodbridge.
The main street in the city is M-1 (Woodward Avenue), which connects Downtown, Midtown, New Center, and the North End.
Downtown has a lot of old buildings, including the Renaissance Center, the Penobscot Building, One Detroit Center, and the Guardian Building, which are all famous skyscrapers. The different downtown districts are anchored by historic churches, theaters, and business buildings. There are a number of parks in downtown, some of which are connected by a walk along the International Riverfront. Campus Martius Park is the city’s main square.
Since 2000, a number of big building projects have been finished, including the new Compuware headquarters at Campus Martius Park and two new stadiums, Comerica Park and Ford Field. The Detroit Lions have moved from Pontiac to Downtown Detroit, and the headquarters of General Motors are now in the Renaissance Center. Downtown has been the site of well-known events like the 2005 MLB All-Star Game, Super Bowl XL, and the 2006 and 2012 World Series. These events brought money to local businesses and helped them grow. Because of this, people are moving into the many new lofts that are opening in Detroit. The Westin Book-Cadillac Hotel shows one of these trends. The Cleveland-based Ferchill Group started the $180 million renovation of the historic Book Cadlliac Hotel at the corner of Washington Boulevard and Michigan Avenue in 2006. The project, which has been praised by preservationists, includes a Westin Hotel with 455 rooms, 67 high-end condos, two to three restaurants, and a variety of shops that serve hotel and conference center guests. There are parks, walkways, and a reflecting pool at the DTE Energy Headquarters.
In 2007, the editors of CNN Money Magazine said that Downtown Detroit was one of the best big city neighborhoods to retire in. The International Riverfront, the MGM Grand Detroit, the Greektown Casino Hotel, and many other places that are on the National Register of Historic Places are all downtown.
