PROJECT: 112 EDMUND PLACE
DEVELOPER: TERRANOVUS DEVELOPMENT
LOCATION: BRUSH PARK - DETROIT, MI
112 Edmund is a seven story mixed-use retail, office and residential complex situated on the John R commercial corridor alongside historic mansions in the Brush Park Neighborhood of Detroit. This development looks to bring back the density and activity that once filled this entire neighborhood.
URBAN FABRIC REPAIR Detroit’s population peaked at 1.85 million in 1950. A 2015 U.S. Census notes that number to be about 680,000. Contributing to the decline was over-reliance upon a single industry, rise of the suburbs, racism in housing, the 1950s and 1960s construction of I-75 and I-375 freeways, and the Riots. Parts of Detroit are so abandoned they have been described as looking like farmland, urban prairie, and even complete wilderness. Three years after the City emerged from the largest declared bankrupcy in municipal history, signs point to a resurgence. When city services and amenities have been ravaged what kind of project can thrive?
