The Roxbury Group, in partnership with Invest Detroit and Midtown Detroit Inc, developed the the Auburn, a mixed-use project located at the corner of Cass and Canfield in Detroit's Midtown neighborhood, and completed in 2012. The project scope included the demolition of an existing vacant structure, and the redevelopment of the 1 acre site into 58 market rate rental units and 9 retail businesses. The $12.3 million project was financed through a combination of State of Michigan Brownfield and Federal New Market Tax Credits, as well as debt financing provided by NCB Capital, JPMorgan Chase and Invest Detroit. Shortly following its opening, the Auburn achieved 100% occupancy in both the residential and retail portions of the project, reactivating an entire city block and tying together the Wayne State University Campus to the North, and the growing gentrification occurring to the South. In so doing, the Auburn has become a model for other in-fill developments in the Midtown area.
