District Detroit is the development planned for the area surrounding Little Caesar's Arena. Although the mixed-use plans were part of the agreement to build the arena, none of the promised housing has been built.

Little Caesar’s Arena in downtown Detroit gets high marks as a venue for watching both NHL hockey and NBA basketball and has attracted a string of high profile concerts since it opened in 2017. A new report by HBO’s Real Sports looks at what’s happened to the plans for the areas around the arena, which isn’t much. 

Detroit Free Press columnist Nancy Kaffer spoke to Michigan Radio's Morning Edition host Doug Tribou about the project. 

Kaffer wrote a column about District Detroit this week that looks at questions raised in the Real Sports story.
