Walkable Waterfront Developments Detroit

We are hosting a walking tour in Downtown Detroit. Our design team is passionate about building community and spaces for interaction. We have selected three sites recently completed, showing ways that mixed use developments are integrated into pedestrian-friendly spaces. We will be emphasizing innovation and sustainability in planning, as part of Detroit Month of Design.

Walkability is the essence of our downtown community. We look for ways to create an authentic and intimate walking experience. We want to highlight our recent projects contributing to the skyline. The tour will give you an in-depth look at our operations at the Mannik Smith Group and tours of the Shinola Hotel, Cobo Convention Center, the Port Authority and the development of the Riverwalk. We will discuss its background in history to the present day. We believe that creating opportunities for a diverse social interaction is a result of successful placemaking. You are invited to experience these walkable downtown developments.
