Indeed. So after some of my efforts, finally there's an international project news thread for Detroit now!

Everyone have a look, join the party and contribute, enjoy the renaissance of the Motor City:

I expected this album to be vast, while it's quite overseeable:

Abandoned buildings in Detroit


And in case you missed it, very informative Wiki article:

More revitalisations coming along:

Marwood Apartments | Nonprofit developer acquires Detroit buildings for renovations, added housing

"Marwood Apartments, at 53 Marston St., will provide mixed-income housing options in renovated and newly constructed spaces.

Rental rates there will range from $597 to $850 for single-room apartments and $813 to $950 for two-bedroom apartments. Midtown Square, at 93 Seward St., will be available to low-to-moderate-income renters."






Farmer’s Hand grocery store to open in Corktown



"Co-owners Kiki Louya, 33, and Rohani Foulkes, 36, emptied their bank accounts to open a small, organic market focused on delivering fresh produce and goods sourced from local farmers and businesses the owners visited personally before purchasing from, Louya said.

The store is modeled off the small markets and bodegas popular in the New York borroughs and other big cities."

The Free Press Building has a new owner. Some are speculating it is Dan Gilbert.

This tiny house could be a game changer for the low-income population in Detroit


















Quote:
Earlier this spring, we brought you the story about Cass Community Social Services raising money for a community of tiny homes to help the low-income population in the city. We now have pictures of the first one, recently finished.
It’s the first of many that will be built on these two blocks between the Lodge and Woodrow Wilson Street. Right now, there are plans to finish seven by October, with the goal of building 25 altogether as the funding comes in. The application process starts soon and the first residents should move in next month.

The houses will range in size from 250-400 square feet. Each house will look different, but will have similar amenities. This model house, seen above, is 300 square feet, and they’ll be building a deck on the back of it for additional living space.

Ford has contributed $400,000 to this project. A 300-square-foot home would cost about $48,000 to build, but that figure could decrease as more are built.

Residents will need an income to qualify for the project. A 300-square-foot home will cost $300 in rent each month, plus heating, which should only be about $32 per month in the winter. They’re using a rent-to-own model, with tenants graduating from a rental lease to a land contract, with potential full ownership rights of the home after seven years.

Personally I think it isn't efficiently designed. Lots of wasted space - no need for a large ceiling height when you could add a second story for the bedroom. But it's the right idea.
