    Track 2: Financing Options, Real Estate, & Economic Development
    Detroit’s historic Brush Park Neighborhood, established in 1860 and once home to Victorian mansion lined streets, experienced depopulation leaving many vacant and blighted lots at the turn of this century. City Modern is an over $100M redevelopment of an 8.4 acre site in Brush Park, consisting of 43 vacant parcels and 4 historic structures most with blighted and/or environmental conditions, into a mixed-use, mixed income development. This learning lounge session will highlight the project specifics, including the completed projects City Modern to-date and the financial incentives used to bring this transformational redevelopment to fruition.
