At 3,203 acres, the Mt. Elliott Development Zone is the single-largest industrial district in Detroit. It encompasses automotive, metals and Transportation, Distribution & Logistics (TDL) clusters. Originally built around the automotive and metals industries, the zone is home to stakeholders such as the GM Detroit Hamtramck Assembly Plant, Detroit Chassis, Futuramic Tool and Engineering Company, LINC Logistics and Flex-N-Gate Detroit. At the center of the Mt. Elliott zone is the I-94 Industrial Park, a 186-acre industrial site positioned near Detroit’s transportation infrastructure. The zone offers access to major transportation assets such as I-94, the Detroit North Rail Yard and Freight Rail, and the Coleman A. Young International Airport.
As a development zone, Mt. Elliott is the focus of an effort to increase and intensify modern industrial development, increase employment and reinforce the Detroit region’s role as a global hub for manufacturing.
