Phase II of the Hatch Neighborhood Initiative in partnership with the Detroit Lions was centered around The Villages of Detroit. Working with the Villages CDC, we determined our project area as the Agnes retail strip, between Parker St. and Van Dyke. 

Here, we installed new lighting in the alley & back parking lot, installed bike racks, and signage for four businesses. We refurbished the broken gas lighting lining Agnes street and repaved sidewalks on Agnes, Parker and Van Dyke. 

The Villages is also home to Detroit Vegan Soul, a 2012 Comerica Hatch Detroit Finalist and 2014 Contest Winner, Sister Pie.
