It Pays to Live Downtown, Literally.

It’s a city center with a small town feel. From the lush green of Lafayette Park to the brilliant blue water of Riverfront to some of the best historic urban architecture anywhere, Downtown Detroit’s neighborhoods have it all and so can you.  Downtown boasts over 13,000 theatre seats, three pro sports teams, three casinos and the Detroit RiverWalk – a 3.5 mile promenade alongside the Detroit River, with bike paths, carousel, fountains, a marina, and parks.

If you work for Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, Compuware, DTE Energy, Marketing Associates, Quicken Loans or Strategic Staffing Solutions, it literally pays to Live Downtown. These employers are offering financial incentives for their employees to live where they work.

There are four incentive options to help you purchase or rent a home in one of the neighborhoods in and near Downtown Detroit: Downtown, Corktown, Lafayette Park, Eastern Market, Woodbridge and the Midtown areas of Brush Park, Cass Park, Art Center, and Lower Cass.
