“It is just so exciting,” Duggan said. “I went to work in downtown Detroit in 1981, I’ve been here every day for 35 years watching people move out. There’s nothing more enjoyable than groundbreakings and people moving back in.”

Some of the units will have up to three bedrooms at the complex that will lie near the site of the new Detroit Red Wings arena.

The apartments will be called The Scott at Brush Park.

“It’s a great time to be in Detroit,” Broder said. “There’s so much happening, the landscape changes every single day.”
