This transformational development will challenge the conventional mixed-use approach and create a new gateway to downtown that is inclusive, welcoming, and equitably prosperous.
The Platform at Gratiot is a mixed-use development that will encompass 350 residential units, 80,000 square feet of retail, and 18,000 square feet of green space.
Once implemented, the master plan of this project will bridge the gap between downtown Detroit and the neighborhoods surrounding Eastern Market by creating exciting, beautiful places to live, shop, and play. The plan arranges multiple residential unit types, hyper-local retail uses, neighborhood-serving amenities and potential hospitality use around a dynamic public space. The design of the project leverages adjacency to the Dequindre Cut, a rail-to-trail greenway conversion, to provide future residents and visitors access to an open-space network connecting two of the region’s most cherished assets (the Eastern Market district and the Detroit Riverfront).
