The Platform and Century Partners to lead Development in Fitzgerald

Announced today, developers Century Partners and The Platform were selected as the finalists for the RFP and will lead revitalization efforts in Fitzgerald. Mayor Duggan, City Planning Director Maurice Cox, City Housing and Rehabilitation Director Arthur Jemison and Council President Pro-Tem George Cushingberry Jr. spoke at a ground breaking event in the Fitzgerald neighborhood today, Wednesday, April 5, 2017. They all welcomed the revitalization efforts, the community’s vision and planning and the continued collaborative neighborhood approach. The city of Detroit is asking the council and landbank to approve on April 11th the transfer of land of 50 parcels for the Ella Fitzgerald park to the Parks and Recreation Department, and 323 parcels to the developer for housing revitalization, and productive landscape development on blighted and vacant lots.
