University City II
With little damage to campus property during the Unrest, Wayne State University strove to widen its borders and develop its facilities after the summer of 1967. A project titled ‘University City, No. 2, Urban Renewal Project’ purchased vacant buildings or those damaged during the Unrest for redevelopment. The initial University City was planned before 1967 and produced Adams Field and the Matthaei athletic complex. Opposition from local community groups changed the project’s scope, and University City, No. 2 fell short of its transformative goals.
