Map: Typologies in the Detroit Innovation District 2015

When the Detroit Innovation District (DID) launched in 2015, there was very limited information as to what that meant and even less information on what new funding or resources would support said “innovation.” I just recently stumbled upon these analyses completed by Interface Studio that maybe proves the point that the groups pushing the DID didn’t have the plan fully fleshed out either. When it comes to innovation districts, Detroit’s was massive (4.4 sq mi vs. 1 or 2 sq mi) and the end recommendation was to focus on micro-districts within the DID.
