Along Michigan Avenue’s corridor, it’s where the City’s 200+ year history and future meet… from rural crossroads to pioneer fort to town square to urban core. While preserving the community’s historic charm, West Dearborn’s business district is abuzz with new restaurant and entertainment venues, new retail and office spaces along with appealing lofts and condos designed for many lifestyles.
Tree lined sidewalks, ample parking, a public library and nearby parks create an inviting destination for people of all ages and cultural backgrounds. Whatever the season – indoors or out – you’ll experience the district’s friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Stop in to shop, dine, relax, play or find a permanent home.
Enjoy all the services and amenities of a big City within a small, vibrant downtown that is actively creating entrepreneurial opportunities and offering a wide variety of entertainment venues and events hosted by the City, local businesses, and community and service organizations. The summer’s popular Dearborn Farmers and Artisans Market brings people together in the community, while promoting healthy living and supporting local farmers, entrepreneurs, and small businesses.
The recently completed John D. Dingell Transit Center, anchoring the east boundary of the district, connects intercity Amtrak service with multiple bus, shuttle, and taxi services, Detroit Metro Airport, and the non-motorized pedestrian network. The center will serve proposed future rail developments, such as high-speed intercity service between Detroit and Chicago, and a commuter line connecting Ann Arbor and Detroit. The potential for Transit Oriented Development (TOD) that could occur around this station is very high. The West Dearborn Downtown District provides an important linkage between transportation, tourism and downtown development for the community.
