placemaking master plan

Create Map

Downtown Detroit already boasts a number of great public destinations, such as Campus Martius, Greektown, Paradise Valley, the r iverWalk, and others that have the potential to become great. Working with r ock Ventur es, strategic partners, and consultants during a one-week charrette in September 2012, PPS identified three key public destinations in the downtown that, if activated, could have a huge impact on their surrounding areas: Campus Martius/ Cadillac Square; Capitol Park; and Grand Circus Park. Through its Placemaking process, PPS determined what the key places will be within each of these public spaces and developed a program of activities and uses for each in the short-term (summer 2013) and the long-term.
