Another 8 Mile facade gets an upgrade

http://metromodemedia.com/images/Features/Issue_256/8MIle-Streetscape.jpgThe Eight Mile Boulevard Association's work to polish the appearance of the  8 Mile road corridor between I-94 and I-275 goes on with the latest facade improvement grant leading to a new look for 3M Abrasives.

The $5,000 grant from 8MBA to 3M helped the company pay for an overhaul of its building front.  It is the latest in a series of companies to participate in a program that aims to bring cohesiveness, some freshening up, to a hodgepodge of largely unregulated storefronts and signs along the dividing line between Detroit and its inner ring suburbs.

3M's facility at 11900 E. 8 Mile now has a cleaner, more modern look and is the latest accomplishment for the nonprofit 8 Mile Boulevard Association, whose mission is to revitalize the corridor in the areas of transportation, business and residential.
