DETROIT (AP) - Three buildings on Detroit’s east side will be renovated to include three rental housing units, three commercial spaces and a community courtyard as part of efforts to improve city neighborhoods.

The Garland Building project in Detroit’s West Village neighborhood is expected to create jobs, while expanding retail and residential opportunities in the neighborhood. It carries a $1.35 million price tag.

JPMorgan Chase and Capital Impact Partners loaned $1 million to the project as part of their collaborative $30 million Detroit Neighborhoods Fund. The fund is financed by JPMorgan Chase’s $100 million commitment to Detroit’s economic recovery.

Capital Impact Partners senior loan officer Melinda Clemons said the project is a “catalyst for a new wave of recent revitalization” in the area.
