Work On Campus Martius Park Recognized

View Comments

Edsel B. Ford, II and Compuware’s Peter Karmanos are being honored by the Detroit District Council of the Urban Land Institute for their contributions toward the development of Campus Martius Park in downtown Detroit.

The two business leaders on November 11 will be given the group’s inaugural Placemaker Award and recognized for helping revitalize the city. The award aims to honor those who have made a positive impact on quality of life through land use. The park opened in 2004.

Ford is the great-grandson of Ford Motor Co. founder Henry Ford. Karmanos is the chairman and CEO of software and services company Compuware Corp., which is headquartered across the street from the park.
