DETROIT (AP) - Billionaire developer Stephen Ross and the Ford Foundation are part of a $27.5 million effort to help revive Detroit neighborhoods.

Crain’s Detroit Business reports the owner of the Miami Dolphins on Thursday night announced a $7.5 million investment in the project that also includes $10 million from the Ford Foundation. Their investments add to $10 million from The Platform LLC, a development company.

The Platform Neighborhood Initiative is working to bring affordable housing and market-rate apartments to areas of Detroit that haven’t seen the biggest redevelopment efforts.
