Potential For 'Mini Campus Martius' In DTE Plan For Western Detroit Neighborhood

DTE Energy has purchased two properties near Third Street and Bagley and plans a downtown revitalization project that it hopes will stimulate retail and cultural development in its neighborhood of western Detroit.

The purchase prices were not disclosed. Last December, DTE purchased the old Salvation Army building adjacent to its headquarters off Bagley and a triangular lot with two empty buildings along Grand River and First Street across the street from the Grand Army of the Republic Building.
