Welcome to New Brooklyn! Today Curbed Detroit arrives just in time to scoop up all the scoop on $100 houses before they're gone and we're all living in loft condos next to urban farms (that's Whole Foods for midtowners). Grab your MFA and a cash down payment because it is time to get started. (Pardon the mess. We're unpacking).
Curbed Detroit the newest site in the Curbed Network, and aims to celebrate neighborhoods, architecture, real estate porn, gossip, and everything to do with the built environment of the Motor City. If foreclosure auctions are your thing and sweeping penthouse views of Canada knock you out, you've come to the right place. Ham Town resident Sarah F. Cox takes the helm as Curbed Detroit's editor.
We'll share the latest news and commentary about Detroit's renewal and bargain-basement-affordable sales prices, as well as neighborhood gossip from the riverfront to 8 Mile and beyond. Yes, this means frequent ventures down Woodward to the 'burbs, too. Maybe one day we'll get to do it on the rail line.
For those familiar with some of the regular features of Curbed, you can expect a healthy dose of That's Rather Hideous and Adventures in Marketing, as well as brand-new features exclusive to the Dangerous D.
Most importantly, it's up to you, dear reader, to keep us up to speed with what's happening in your 'hood. If you've got news, scoops, tips, rumors or rants, don't be shy about directing them to our tipline. And thank you for the warm Midwestern welcome. See you at Slows.
