SHERWOOD FOREST—The finishing touches are being applied to storefronts on the Avenue of Fashion, a historic shopping district recently awarded some major grant money. Retailers and artists have redesigned, renovated, or refurbished several unique spaces, and Curbed has the first look inside.
CASS CORRIDOR—The Temple Hotel has long been a hub for prostitution, which is why it might be surprising to learn that DTE Energy recently paid millions to buy the place. The infamous hotel's unsavory history, this way.
NEW CENTER—Whether through extra-wide streets or destroying itself for parking purposes, the Motor City rarely fails to accommodate the automobile. Yet there are exceptions, our favorite being a neighborhood street in New Center that prohibits cars, and looks better for it.
