West End Gallery District

The West End Gallery District is envisioned as a local and regional destination that celebrates arts and culture and is home to creative entrepreneurs. This district— defined by Grand River Avenue between Canfield and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard—will support emerging businesses, development opportunities, and cultural activities through the creation of three nodes: the Arts/Retail Incubator Node, the Community Gathering Node, and the Neighborhood Retail Node. The district will include public art, galleries, ateliers, retail, restaurants, public space, and housing. It will be anchored by “N’Namdi Project Space,” an arts incubator where entrepreneurs will develop and test their businesses through temporary pop-up art and retail spaces. The district will adapt over time based on changes in community input, development opportunities, and funding availability. This project was prepared for the N’Namdi Center for Contemporary Art by City Form Detroit.
