The LiveMidtown housing incentive program was launched in 2011 after University Cultural Center Association (UCCA) merged with the New Center Council to form Midtown Detroit, Inc. The most recent announcement is that the program area has been expanded to include the historic Boston-Edison neighborhood north of New Center.
Midtown is considered Detroit’s premier neighborhood where young people flock and new business compete for space. Midtown is home to what could be considered Detroit’s core industry of health care with DMC campus, WSU Main and Medical Campus, and Henry Ford Health System.
Prior to 2001, Midtown did not even exist and now under Midtown Detroit, Inc. it has become a driving force behind the place-making, investment, and future development of one of Detroit’s core areas. Where will the Midtown boundaries expand to next?
