People, Ideas & Experiences

Hustle. Grind. Mash.

We bring together the different people, ideas and experiences of Detroit’s ‘grind’ culture under one roof.

The Intersection of Communities

Bridging Detroit and Grosse Pointe Communties

Easily accessible to downtown Detroit and Grosse Pointe communities, MASH represents an intersection between people, streets, neighborhoods, and cities.

A Neighborhood Hub

A destination for Organic Social Collision

MASH is designed to inspire creativity, collaboration and engagement – serving as a reliable and experiential destination hub of organic social collisions that foster neighborhood enrichment and residential connections.

Intricate minglings of different uses in cities are not a form of chaos. On the contrary, they represent a complex and highly developed form of order.

- Jane Jacobs
