The District Detroit recently passed a major milestone in the construction of the Little Caesars Arena: more than $300 million in contracts have been awarded to 70 Detroit-based businesses. This exceeds the original goal by nearly double. Watch the video to see the positive impact this project is having on the Detroit community.

The District Detroit development and Little Caesars Arena are an exciting part of Detroit’s comeback story. It means a great deal to Plante Moran Cresa to work with Olympia Development of Michigan and all the organizations involved to help revitalize our hometown.

As Real Estate Partner, Plante Moran Cresa’s role is to bring our multidisciplinary real estate team to assist Olympia Development of Michigan with the new arena’s construction program management as well as developing and executing a real estate strategy that brings the most unique blend of local and national retailers and office users to The District Detroit.

The District Detroit is a bold vision coming to life through 50 blocks of thriving businesses, parks, restaurants, bars, and event destinations. Imagine five unique neighborhoods featuring residential, office, retail, and green spaces anchored by world-class sports and entertainment venues.
