dc.description.abstract Established urban areas like Detroit frequently experience decay and abandonment because of the unchecked desire for modern suburban development. Residents and businesses leave the city for the suburbs, allowing urban residential areas to fall into a state of general disrepair. With a strong understanding of the factors that cause urban residential disrepair and subsequent migration to the suburbs, changes and improvements that will attract new growth and urban redevelopment can be proposed. This understanding can be gained through analysis of existing conditions, demographics of the area, and consultation with various professionals familiar with the social impacts of urban renewal. With the knowledge acquired, new housing and neighborhood amenities were designed on abandoned urban residential lots. The objective of this research was to show that properly designed urban areas are beneficial to the residents and businesses of urban areas.
