Detroit - City under economic recovery
Detroit is similar to Shanghai in that it has many classical and iconic buildings. DDI through its successful history has had great experience in bringing these types of buildings back to life and so the company is bringing and using its China experience to the fore in Detroit.
The Free Press Building is one of the most well know buildings as it was the home of the city’s key newspaper for so long. DDI are aiming to keep the heritage of the building while developing it into smaller residences aimed at the Younger Executives to support the growing downtown need. The focus into the Younger Executives is again one of the success stories of the company.
Additionally the company owns the David Stott and the Clark Lofts buildings in central Detroit. DDI is using its expertise to explore the different possibilities for these buildings, after it has successfully completed the rejuvenation of the Free Press Building.
DDI hopes by leveraging its expertise and efforts, as well as working with the local community to make a significant part in the revival of Detroit.
