Detroit Properties Demolition

$179 / year

This dataset shows properties that are contracted for demolition by the Detroit Land Bank Authority (DLBA) or Detroit Building Authority (DBA). Projects listed in this dataset have a known price, contractor, and projected knock-down date.


The vast majority of all demolitions by the city is done using federal Hardest Hit Funds (HHF), which, by law, can be spent only in federally-designated areas of the city. This map shows the HHF zones where the city currently can spend its federal allocation of money. The city is constantly pursuing additional federal funds to allow it to further expand these HHF zones to include more neighborhoods.

The Nuisance Abatement Program (NAP) boundaries indicate areas where the city has taken legal action against the owners of vacant properties to compel them to either fix up the house within six months, or transfer the title to the Detroit Land Bank Authority (DLBA), which will put them on a track for either auction or demolition, depending on the property’s condition. Federal HHF funds can be used only on structures owned by the DLBA.
