On the Cover
In the five years following the Great Recession, Southeast Michigan’s commercial and industrial real estate market has slowly and steadily continued to rise. This silent success story is led by the state’s automotive and manufacturing industry comeback, as well as milestone projects such as The District Detroit and an emerging technology startup ecosystem.
From creative adaptive reuse breathing new life into downtowns, to community and government partnerships restoring long abandoned structures into vibrant community anchors, the region has plenty to celebrate. As the region braces for a boom in new projects, developers and realtors alike are sounding the alarm that the market is nearing capacity. Where it goes from here is anyone’s guess. One thing is for sure: Demand is not slowing.
Featuring Quicken Loans and Rock Ventures Founder and Chairman Dan Gilbert and Chris Ilitch, president and CEO of Ilitch Holdings Inc., on the cover, the March edition of the Detroiter takes a closer look at the state of the commercial and industrial market across Southeast Michigan and the major players making it happen — from the architects, developers and real estate brokers, to the collaborative efforts of government agencies and the business and startup community.
