Woodbridge is a historic neighborhood in Detroit, originally developed along a streetcar line on the near-Westside. Located near Downtown, Midtown, New Center, and the Cultural Center, Woodbridge today is a growing and thriving residential and mixed-use neighborhood successfully blending the old with the new.
Many of the historic homes, built between 1870 and 1920 as single-family and two-family residences, are a variety of nineteenth-century architectural styles, including: Queen Anne, Colonial, and Georgian Revival. Stores, offices, bed-and-breakfasts, and art galleries are intermixed around the commercial districts on Grand River, Trumbull, Fourteenth Street, and 12th Street (Rosa Parks Boulevard). The neighborhood is located about two miles from Downtown between Grand River Avenue and the John C. Lodge Freeway.
New homes are also now part of Woodbridge: Woodbridge Estates consists of condomininums, townhouses, and single family homes with streets named after Motown Legends. It is located right off the Lodge Freeway and is another example of new housing stock and the regentrification of Detroit while preserving history.
