Named after the 19th century park that was located at Elizabeth and 5th Street (severed from the neighborhood by the construction of the Lodge Freeway), Elton Park is located in Corktown, the oldest surviving neighborhood in Detroit-which is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Elton Park is a development of Soave Real Estate for which Roxbury is providing development services. The development spans 5 blocks, incorporating six buildings with 151 rental apartments and row houses-including new construction and the redeveloped Checker Cab building. The neighborhood will also offer 13,400 sq. ft. of retail and Checker Alley-an intimate public gathering space.
