Detroit bankruptcy is not deterring $55 million Rivertown development
The news of Detroit's bankruptcy filing has been relentless.
But that Chapter 9 filing does not seem to be completely stalling economic growth and development in and around downtown.

Rivertown would have townhouses, apartments and small-scale retail.
