Orleans Landing, Detroit, Michigan

The study area is on the left bank of the East Riverfront District, between Renaissance Center and Stroh Place. It is in direct proximity to Downtown Detroit, Belle Isle, the Lafayette Park neighborhood, and Windsor. In 2011 McCormack Baron Salazar, Inc. (MBS) approached the EDC about the opportunity to develop a portion of the EDC’s lands. MBS, in partnership with Urban Design Associates, produced an implementation plan to guide the repurposing and redevelopment of the targeted Economic Development Corporation (EDC) parcels within the East Riverfront District. In addition to study of the specific EDC study areas, the development team proposed an overall development strategy for Rivertown in context with the 2004 City of Detroit East Riverfront District Plan.
