How can we bring the investment that revitalized the Woodward Corridor to neighborhoods in Detroit? Hear from the institutions implementing this strategy on how they are doing it, what lessons were learned from the Woodward Corridor experience and what's different about the neighborhood context. Particular emphasis will be placed on the greater need for affordable housing, how to overcome the lower commercial and residential rents in neighborhoods and neighborhood scale development.
