Downtown Development

Renaissance Center Promotional Video

not yet in paragraph form but these are the ideas 

  1. New Detroit Committee 
  2. “Building in the face of recession”
    1. Renaissance Center 
      1. “Anti Crime Architecture”
        1. Anti-community but existing as a larger national trend, not unique to Detroit
        2. Describing the whole architecture of the Renaissance building to be so that you never have to interact with streets themselves -- “the city is dangerous but you can still come shop”
    2. Partnerships with the business elite
      1. Revealing a more moderate side of Young, shifting his focus to appease a new audience 
      2. Combination of focus on historically powerful business executives and African American businesses
