McIntosh Poris Associates has been selected as one of six local firms that will provide significant consulting and advisory roles for the transformation of one of the most exciting, emerging neighborhoods in Detroit – The East Riverfront.
The Detroit Riverfront Conservancy and the City of Detroit Planning Department announced today that Chicago-based Skidmore, Owings & Merrill has been selected to develop a comprehensive plan that will lead to new investment and development within the East Riverfront District. “The selection process reflects our aspirations for promoting the Detroit waterfront as an international treasure,” says Maurice Cox, director of the City of Detroit Planning and Development Department. “We see no better signal of this than assembling an accomplished team representing local, national and international talent.”
