“The charming Downtown is now home to many community events, including Summerfest, Paddlepalooza, the Halloween Spooktacular, Summer Concert Music Series, and more! It also features a variety of businesses and restaurants owned by community-minded business owners.
In 2002, the small downtown area at Auburn and Squirrel was revitalized and the city and Tax Increment Finance Authority have invested over $18 million with streetscape, and infrastructure improvements. Since then, business downtown has grown and shows no signs of stopping.
There is a beautiful area consisting of a four-story apartment complex, parking structure, classroom space called the University Center and a community center called The DEN (Downtown Education Nook). The DEN is a place where students can come to study, research and socialize in a renovated historical cabin with modern amenities like free wi-fi and study desks/tables. The DEN also doubles as a coworking space for free-lancers and entrepreneurs during the day”(www.auburnhills.org)”.
