It may look like any old vacant building in Detroit, but for a group dedicated to helping others, all they see is an opportunity.
“The Ground Up Project is a revitalization effort for the city of Detroit. We’re going to be empowering entrepreneurs to own and operate their own businesses,” said Dexter Sullivan, who is with the Ground Up Project.
Sullivan said all of that will happen inside a building on Linwood Street, right at the center of the LaSalle Gardens and the Historic Dexter Linwood neighborhood.
“This building here will be our ground zero, this will be the Black Legacy Advancement Center, in this building we will own and operate a barbershop as well as a takeaway restaurant and catering kitchen,” Sullivan said.
Sullivan said the participants will also live upstairs, where they will complete a two-year program.
