Woodward: A Great American City Hidden in Plain Site
Metro Detroit's tragic history has left it without vibrant central city... or has it? Straddling both the city and suburbs, the Woodward Corridor is a great American city hidden in plain sight. It defines a walkable urban core for southeast Michigan that is already surprisingly competitive and with further collaboration and effort could be world class.
