2017 : Little Caesars Arena Ribbon Cutting

September 5, 2018 all-day


More than a new home for two professional sports teams, the Little Caesars Arena, set for a ribbon-cutting next week, is the centerpiece of a 50-block development dubbed District Detroit that is expected to breathe life into a part of Detroit that has long been considered a dead zone.

The district — slated to include entertainment and commercial developments, as well as at least six residential developments — aims to transform a part of Detroit that for years has been made up of vacant and dilapidated buildings, offices housing nonprofit service organizations, restaurants, bars, and liquor stores.
