By becoming a business-in-residence here, you’ll be joining a group of people who want to support each other’s work, make the world more sustainable in the way they work, and connect in a meaningful way to the city around them.

NEIGHBORHOOD

The Green Garage is located in the thriving and historic Cass Corridor of Midtown, one of the most vibrant and walkable parts of Detroit. Joining our coworking community puts you just steps from dozens of unique, independently owned shops, cafes, restaurants, and bars, as well as some of the region’s leading cultural and educational institutions, like the Detroit Institute of Arts and Wayne State University.

You’ll also find historic architecture and a diverse residential community in our neighborhood as well as ample street parking (both metered and free), dedicated bike lanes, and easy access to DDOT and QLine stops. We even have a MoGo station (Detroit’s bike share system) right across the street.

Our neighborhood is an urban village that offers the best of both worlds: it’s a community-minded place where you can get to know neighbors on a first-name basis, and a dynamic urban center with annual gatherings that draw thousands of visitors, like Dally in the Alley, Marche du Nain Rouge, and Noel Night.

Come visit us sometime and experience the magic of Midtown for yourself. Before you do, check out Visit Midtown for a comprehensive look at the many small businesses, institutions, and attractions that are right around the corner from the Green Garage.
