In 2014, the New York Times took a data-driven look at Detroit’s storied North End as a juxtaposition of the newly promised redevelopment and the enormous challenges that the city faces. At the edge of Midtown and New Center, the North End will likely see expanded investment.

There are many reasons to be hopeful and cynical about the North End from new initiatives at Vanguard CDC, the recently relocated Detroit Animal Care and Control (DACC) paired with brand new facilities for the Michigan Humane Society, and everything happening on Oakland Avenue from ONE Mile to the Oakland Avenue Urban Farm. The flip side is that cheap real estate has been snapped up by a handful of land speculators and the hope of “transit-oriented development” (TOD) related to the M1-Rail streetcar has displaced some while driving up prices for others.
