Greater downtown Detroit continues to have near-full residential occupancy according to a new report.
The figures come from the “7.2 SQ MI” report, which is from a partnership between the Hudson-Webber Foundation, Downtown Detroit Partnership, Midtown Detroit, Inc., Detroit Economic Growth Corporation and Invest Detroit, and provides an assessment of those living, working and investing in downtown Detroit.
“We believe a strong core is critical to the success of Detroit and our region,” said Eric Larson, CEO of Downtown Detroit Partnership, in a release. “Having this data assists us in shaping new programming and fine tuning our initiatives supporting a resilient city and downtown.”
This is the second edition of the report, which was first released in early 2013, and covers a 7.2 square mile collection of neighborhoods: Downtown, Midtown, Woodbridge, Eastern Market, Lafayette Park, Rivertown and Corktown, and found there are 35,037 people living in the area.
For those living downtown, there is a greater foreign-born population in downtown than the state ( 7 vs. 6 percent) and larger concentration of college educated individuals in the area than even the United States (8 vs. 4 percent).
