The District Detroit will ultimately account for a total economic impact of more than $2 billion and create more than 12,500 construction and construction-related jobs in addition to 1,100 permanent jobs. Travis Arbogast, Vice President of Development, will update us on Olympia’s development and construction plans.
Eastern Michigan University‘s campus encompasses 800+ acres,18 miles of walkways and jogging trails, and 122 buildings on the main campus.
