Development opens in Corktown

DETROIT (AP) — A $150 million mixed-use development officially has opened just west of downtown in Detroit’s Corktown neighborhood.
Mayor Mark Duggan’s office says Elton Park’s first phase was completed in just over two years and includes 151 residential units and more than 11,000 square feet (1,021 square meters) of retail space. More than 70% of the apartments have been leased.
Duggan says “what had been for years a sea of parking lots and a large vacant building is now a beautiful new residential anchor and public space in Detroit’s oldest neighborhood.”
