Hatch Detroit and the Detroit Lions have selected Grandmont Rosedale, a neighborhood in Detroit, as the next project site in the Hatch Detroit Neighborhood Initiative, focused on serving storefront retail.
“Collaborations with organizations like Hatch Detroit have been a great way to showcase the vibrant small businesses in Grandmont Rosedale,” says Tom Goddeeris, executive director of the Grandmont Rosedale Development Corporation. “We’re looking forward to seeing this project’s impact in this community.”
Grandmont Rosedale is one of six target neighborhoods identified as an area of focus in the Neighborhood Initiative, which also includes the North End, Corktown, Southwest Detroit, West Village, and the Avenue of Fashion, says Vittoria Katanski, executive director of Hatch Detroit. Hatch Detroit and the Detroit Lions have completed several phases of the project on the Avenue of Fashion and West Village.
The Detroit Lions Charities have contributed $150,000 to the program, bringing community-driven infrastructure improvements that will improve pedestrian friendliness around the businesses on Grand River Avenue between Warwick Street and Outer Drive, according to the franchise.
