City Modern is a groundbreaking community development in Brush Park, Detroit, restoring the innovation, style and diversity inherent to this historic neighborhood. Featuring an array of new residential, shopping and dining opportunities, City Modern situates current and future Detroiters in the heart of our city.
In 2016, the City of Detroit was designated a UNESCO “City of Design,” becoming the first American city to receive this honor. City Modern seeks to embody that designation, creating a place that illustrates how the design process can thoughtfully and beautifully resolve longstanding urban issues. To that end, the mixed-use, mixed-income development vision will include elements such as a connective string of pedestrian parks called The Mews, alleys designed as sustainable infrastructure, green roofs and shared transportation systems.
