ROSSETTI is currently partnering with the City of Detroit to seek innovative urban design practices that combine open space and storm water management with landscape buffering requirements to balance the opportunities associated with attracting new industrial and logistics development while supporting the existing housing stock. The construction of the Gordie Howe International Bridge within the Delray planning area will likely increase industrial and truck traffic in the neighborhood. The concentration of publicly owned vacant land throughout the planning area presents potential development opportunities as well as opportunities for landscape buffering to better integrate differing uses. Given the environmental impacts of existing industrial uses in the area, and the sound pollution from truck traffic—identifying and codifying buffering opportunities is a critical component to the planning study. Interface Studio is leading the strategies for community engagement with innovative execution to follow CDC recommended COVID-19 guidelines.
