For such an incredibly small footprint, this is huge for Hamtrack. It's interesting to note that according to SEMCOG, who's estimates I take far more seriously than the Census', Hamtramck has grown something like almost 10% since 2000, which is more than most mid-ring suburbs, and more than every inner-ring suburb. In fact, the only inner-rings and enclaves growing are those that actively promote themselves as inclusive, immigrant-friendly cities. The only other one is Dearborn, who's reported to have broke the 100,000 mark for the first time in years.

I'd really like to see Hamtramck start filling in with a few low-rises, and that's really not too far off.
