The world’s largest property auction just went down in Detroit. About 20,000 properties (roughly 5 percent of the city) were auctioned for $500 and around 8,000 properties did not sell. Crazy stuff. What are some creative ways to approach this?
Join us this Wednesday, Nov. 28 at 6 p.m. at Cafe Con Leche’s new pop-up cafe
in Lafayette Park for a special Urban Innovation Exchange
forum led by Jerry Paffendorf, the dude behind Why Don’t We Own This?
and LOVELAND Technologies
Jerry will share results from the latest Wayne County Property Auction
before turning over the floor over to YOU, urban innovators, to brainstorm new solutions for creative placemaking, crowdsourcing, zoning, renovation, deconstruction and more.
Cafe Con Leche del Este
is at 1561 Lafayette Blvd. in Detroit. The event is free and open to the public, but space is limited. Please register here
This event is presented by Urban Innnovation Exchange
