But officials from Broder & Sachse Real Estate have just opened the doors at The Scott at Brush Park, a high-end mixed-use development on Woodward Ave. and Erskine St. in Detroit’s Midtown area, the first of its kind in the city, and many here hope it’s the start of something big for the neighborhoods surrounding the CBD.
