About VIP by DRP

The Verified Industrial Properties (VIP by DRP) program simplifies your site selection search with a convenient catalogue of properties in the Detroit Region.

At the Detroit Regional Partnership (DRP), we understand that site selection is at the very core of every successful venture. But finding the perfect property can be difficult without VERIFIED site data on hand.

The VIP by DRP program takes the uncertainty out of your search, ensuring the accuracy of all site due diligence. On our web portal, you can search with confidence, knowing that all verified sites have been evaluated by an independent source—unaffiliated with the site owner or broker.

The DRP partners with a team of civil and environmental engineers to collect and verify critical site information.

They assess each VIP site and evaluate its site conditions and readiness for future development. This verification process helps accelerate your search, so you can quickly evaluate whether a site is the right property for your project. Then, the DRP presents these VIP sites in one easy, searchable database. Simply browse our web portal of sites and discover viable industrial properties across the region.

Our Verification Process

Our verification process is a collaborative effort between the Detroit Regional Partnership, local site owners and our authorized engineering consultants. Once a site is a part of VIP by DRP, we work with that site owner to begin collecting information about the property. Then, our third-party engineer experts perform an in-depth desktop due diligence on the site.

Once the verification process is complete, the site and all verified data will be publicly accessible on the VIP by DRP portal. You can easily browse for sites and curate your search results to your project needs. Learn more about the program stages here.

We simplify the site selection process. After verifying the collected site data, we compile that due diligence on the VIP by DRP web portal. This makes it easy for you to efficiently browse the Detroit Region for industrial properties that suit your project needs.
