Hatch Detroit was founded on the premise that cool and diverse retail is the lifeblood of developing neighborhoods, and essential to attracting and retaining residents.
In 2012 the Detroit Lions and Hatch Detroit will team up for an entirely new “Neighborhood Initiative”—launching the only charitable effort dedicated exclusively to championing independent storefront retail in Detroit.
Six neighborhoods have been selected: University Commons, Southwest Detroit, the Villages, Jefferson East, Grandmont/Rosedale, and the North End.
We see these neighborhoods as a critical component of the revitalization of the region and will shine a spotlight on the entrepreneurs in those neighborhoods making a difference.
