Exciting things are happening in Banglatown.
Development plans for the area, just north of the Hamtramck-Detroit border, were recently unveiled, and it promises to attract more businesses and visitors.
While Banglatown is technically in Detroit, its growth will likely spill over to Hamtramck.
A few months ago, the Hamtramck City Council agreed to hook up with Detroit and expand that area to include Hamtramck’s portion of Conant, which will help solidify future grant requests.
In the 1990s, Conant was a ghost town – a mere shadow of its once bustling commercial strip.
But as the Bengali community expanded, new businesses quickly sprang up, bringing the district back to life.
Detroit’s development will only spur on more activity.
Hamtramck has always been known as an international city.
This latest shot in the arm should help to cement our city’s reputation as a unique cultural destination.
Hamtramck’s future is looking brighter and brighter.
