- 47 percent could see their companies investing in cities like Detroit that have fewer amenities, lower costs
- Majority of surveyed Detroiters and suburbanites view changes in Detroit as positive

And nearly half or 46 percent see Detroit as an “excellent” business opportunity, up from less than a third last year.
