An open air retail mall located on Eight Mile Road in Detroit, MI, this project constructed a major retail center remediating a 36-acre Brownfield site at the Southeast corner of Woodward Avenue and Eight Mile Road in a severely distressed Detroit neighborhood. The anchor tenant is now a 214, 000 sq. ft. Meijer Super Center that provides affordable groceries to local residents in a federally designated food desert with a poverty rate of 48% and median family income of less than 30% of the area’s median family income. This is the first major grocery store built in Detroit in 50 years and is bordered by several consecutive federally designated food deserts. A bus stop in the middle of the retail center will ensure available public transportation. (NNMF NMTCs: $14 million)
