Midtown is a unique area, bounded by the Ford Freeway on the north, the Chrysler Freeway on the east, the Fisher Freeway on the south and the Lodge Freeway on the west. The area is a just north of Detroit’s Central Business District and just south of the New Center area.

Many Detroit cultural, educational, medical and service institutions are located here. This area is home to The Detroit Institute of Arts, Detroit Public Library, C. H. Wright Museum of African American History, Wayne State University, College for Creative Studies, Detroit Medical Center, Detroit Symphony Orchestra Hall, and Masonic Temple, to name just a few. Midtown also has a growing residential base within its many historic neighborhoods.

Midtown is one of the fastest developing areas in Detroit with many opportunities for rehabilitation, restoration and new construction. The University Cultural Center Association (UCCA) would be happy to assist you with your development project. For more information about our organization, please contact us at the following location.


In March of 2004, The Detroit Free Press ran a detailed, five day series on all the developments, people, pioneers, culture and other good things taking place in Midtown.
