There are a bunch of new development projects in Detroit. That includes more bike lanes, street lights and the Joe Louis Greenway — which will be 27.5 miles long and is meant to expand green space in the city.
Over 40% of the Joe Louis Greenway will be located directly behind resident homes, according to the city’s development director.

“By 2024, you’ll have a significant amount of it completed,” says Bryant, “and it’ll be a tremendous opportunity. Many people may be familiar with the BeltLine in Atlanta, there’s a Hight Line in New York — there’s a number of these kinds of entities across the country — and we’re looking for the JLG (Joe Louis Greenway) to be the best of those yet in the country.”
