Detroit's Unique Neighborhoods: Green Acres

Green Acres might be one of Detroit’s best-kept secrets. Nestled around Woodlawn Cemetery at the southwest corner of Eight Mile and Woodward, it contains a stylistic mix of homes built in the 1920s to 1940s. Its well-maintained lawns and pedestrian traffic bespeak a tight-knit community. Most houses here have beautiful architectural details, and active community groups work diligently to make sure they are great places to live.

Green Acres resident Michael Griggs is currently developing townhomes and single-family homes on one of the few vacant parcels in the neighborhood. The teacher- turned-developer cites the “diverse housing stock and diverse residents” as aspects of the neighborhood that stand out to him. He also notes the proximity to shopping and food in Ferndale and Royal Oak. Green Acres is also conveniently located near freeways and new shopping centers in Detroit.

New purchasers of homes in Green Acres are eligible for the NEZ (Neighborhood Enterprise Zone) Tax Abatement.
