The 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.
