Hamtramck -- a 2.5 sq. mile city-district in the center of Detroit, Michigan

Detroit Zen Center Residency

Our neighborhood is in the middle of bustling Hamtramck — a 2.5 square mile city district in the epicenter of Detroit. Hamtramck is an enclaved city, home to 32 ethnic groups — and a large population of artists, students, and first generation folks to the United States. The most walkable area of metro-Detroit, Hamtramck is very urban — a dense & eclectic community with grocery stores, restaurants, cafes, bars, music, and galleries all around. No need for a car if you are going to stay in Hamtramck — but if you plan to visit other parts of Detroit, a car is useful. Downtown Detroit is 5 miles away. We are next door to the North End, New Center & the historic Boston Edison District.

The Detroit Zen Center has 3 buildings (a 2,200 sq. ft. Meditation Mall with a lower level commercial kitchen & cafe space), a 3-story brick residency; a corridor connecting the two).  We have a 2,200 sq. ft. green roof on top of the meditation hall which has walking paths & planters, a smaller green roof below, a front garden & a peace garden across the street.  We aim to model sustainability & vibrant lifestyle, both inside and outside, is our mission and guiding principle.
