Develop Detroit was created by the Housing Partnership Network (HPN), in close partnership with key Detroit leaders and institutions. Develop Detroit is a high capacity, mission-driven real estate development company that will execute significant housing and revitalization projects throughout the City. Develop Detroit will promote revitalization through catalytic neighborhood development – creating sustainable and dynamic communities that promote economic stability and enhance the quality of life for all residents.
Develop Detroit is structured and capitalized as an independent nonprofit that builds on the experience and performance of the most accomplished developers in the nation. Develop Detroit will operate in key neighborhoods and will be staffed and governed locally, while drawing upon the best practices and experience of HPN members from across the country. The firm will have the capacity to undertake ventures independently but will actively seek partnerships with other non-profit and for-profit developers. The focus will be on providing affordable, mixed income and mixed-use developments as well as community facilities that will help stabilize and transform neighborhoods.
