Harbortown Master Plan

Working with a local development team, SCB developed a conceptual master plan to add additional density to an existing waterfront residential development in Detroit, Michigan. The project site is made up of over 13 acres of ideally located waterfront property, just east of downtown.

The original Harbortown development, built in the 1980s, consisted of two high-rise structures with 90,000 square feet, 270 units of commercial property, and approximately 80 townhouses. The master plan expansion prepared by SCB identifies four additional tower sites accommodating 750 units and 41 new townhomes, as well as additional recreational and open space amenities for the community. The proposed new development was designed with walkability in mind and creates connections between the marina, the Detroit Riverwalk, and the residential park spaces.
