The Best Resources for Staying Up-to-Date on Local Developments

With real estate development in Detroit moving at a breakneck pace, and so much of the city constantly changing and evolving, staying on top of all the news can be challenging. Luckily, there are a cornucopia of online resources that can help you stay updated. Here are some of our favorites:


This nationwide blog network’s Detroit chapter is particularly good, with details about every significant Detroit development. If you’re only going to pick one resource from this list to follow, Curbed is the one.


The Detroit Free Press

Of Detroit’s two prominent newspapers (the other being the Detroit News), we prefer the Free Press (or “freep,” as it’s often abbreviated). The simplest way to stay up-to-date on the city’s latest.


Renegade Detroit Investors Podcast

Our favorite real estate meetup also has a podcast by the same name. While the meetup is the place to be if you want to network or do deals, listen to the podcast if you want to learn. Host Jeremy Burgess interviews members of the local real estate community. Don’t miss Castle’s appearances on episodes 3 and 44!


Detroit Future City

A project from the Detroit Economic Growth Corporation, Detroit Future City has released a strategic framework for Detroit’s future development, and regularly publishes detailed, data-driven reports about the city. Their most recent, the 139 Square Miles Report, is 50+ pages on population, people, economy and place. While their content can make for hefty reading, Detroit Future City is the place to go to for an in-depth analysis of what’s changing about Detroit.
