The Grandmont Rosedale Development Corporation (GRDC) works to preserve and revitalize the Grandmont Rosedale communities of northwest Detroit. Through its Housing Development Program, the CDC purchases and renovates vacant homes, assists low-income homeowners with home repairs, and builds new housing on vacant lots. To foster commercial development, GRDC has a pop-up retail space in which local entrepreneurs can test their business concepts. In 2016, the space supported 3 enterprises, one of which has opened a permanent storefront. The CDC also runs a co-working space, which currently houses 15 small businesses employing 24 people. To encourage residents to support local businesses, GRDC coordinates several events throughout the year including a Shop Small Saturday, which brings more than 50 local entrepreneurs together as a grassroots alternative for holiday gift shopping.
