Description

Detroit Gateway Park Outlet Mall, LLC has developed a 36-acre brownfield site located at the southeast corner of Woodward Ave and 8 Mile Road in a severely distressed neighborhood that qualifies as a federally designated food desert. This project represents the construction of a retail center with a 190,000 square foot Meijer Super Center as the anchor tenant. It was the first national grocery/retail store to open in Detroit in over two decades.

The project utilized NMTC allocation from five CDEs, Brownfield Tax Credits, local grants and other financing for completion. The Gateway Marketplace brings fresh food options and necessary goods and services to an underserved area, and provides entry-level jobs with opportunity for advancement.
