The Roots of Mack Avenue

  • 4401 Conner St Detroit, MI, 48215 United States (map)

Participants of “The Roots of Mack Avenue” walk can expect to learn the about the past, present and FUTURE of the once bustling commercial corridor of Mack Avenue with the introduction of the Green Thoroughfare project.  In its heyday, this section of Mack Avenue was home to theaters, furniture stores, bakeries, & a host of other retail shops. Today less than ten businesses remain among the 111 parcels in this corridor. Along this walk of the past and present, we will discuss the future. The Green Thoroughfare is a Lower Eastside Action Plan and Mack Avenue Business Association endorsed project that will convert the targeted Mack Avenue Corridor to a green, clean, safe and productive byway for a new generation of economic and community development.
