New Center


New Center is a unique and vibrant district. Off Woodward Avenue north of Midtown, it is home to the Fisher Building and the Fisher Theatre. The legacy of Albert Kahn and so many other neighborhood notables are reason enough to visit here. Less known is the rich and growing mix of goods and services. It's also the home to business incubators like TechTown that are bringing a new economic engine to Detroit.
