University of Detroit Mercy has been working for years to revitalize the neighborhood around the McNichols Campus, and it seems the idea is catching on.

First, Detroit Mercy pushed for the installation of medians on Livernois, creating a safer and more attractive boulevard from The Lodge to Eight Mile. The School of Architecture’s Detroit Collaborative Design Center has worked with nearby residents to create a small park where neighborhood children can play.

Today, Model D, a website devoted to all things Detroit, wrote about many other things happening in the neighborhood. Read the exciting news here.
