Detroit Demolition Department


Detroit Demolition Funding and Upcoming Project Status

Detroit is home to the nation's largest and safest demolition program. Since 2014, it has taken down over 20,000 vacant buildings in Detroit neighborhoods. Voters approved Proposal N for Neighborhoods, a $250M comprehensive plan to address vacant houses in Detroit through preservation or demolition. As a result, the Demolition Department is tasked with demolishing an additional 8,000 blighted homes and preserving 6,000 blighted homes for future renovation and sale, improving the safety, value and health of our neighborhoods.
