Midtown Detroit unveils plans for $20 million Selden Corridor redevelopment

A planned $20 million redevelopment of Selden Corridor in Midtown will include a bar arcade, brewing school, meat-centric restaurant, eco-homes and public outdoor workspace for entrepreneurs.

Midtown Detroit Inc. announced Wednesday the updated plans for the mixed-use projects, known as the Selden Corridor Initiative, on Selden Street between Second Avenue and Fourth Street.

The community development agency started the initiative earlier this year and development is expected to be complete by late fall next year.

That is a hell of an arena! I love the way it appears to interact with the street, like an arena enveloped by more pedestrian scaled buildings. Great design. So much going on in Detroit right now, it will be an exciting place to visit in a couple years when some of these major projects have time to make their impact felt.

very cool. i was just going to post something about it, but not that much. i really like how it makes an attempt to fit into the street level setting, whiich you can see on the last shot. instead of one long street wall, its broken up into three. and the rest seems to be turning out great too. there is a lot of thought being put into this arena.

I too am impressed by Little Caesar's Arena tight integration into the Woodward Ave streetscape.  It looks like a ginant mixed-use building. Large sports arenas of this type usually are set far back with large entrance plazas where fans gather, usually to purchase tickets, food from food trucks, team memorabilia, programs, (and of course, hot tics from scalpers) etc...... The architecture of LCA is impressive, too... It looks like a low-slung office building with the windows-- obviously allowing lots of natural daytime light into the corridors.  I also like the giant murals honoring Detroit Pistons' and Red Wings' greats (I'm hopeful Gilbert/Cavs will do the same in The Q makeover)... We'll definitely have to make it up to Motown for a Cavs-Pistons game at this fabulous new joint.

^^I'm guessing the Piston's will be tough this year in their honeymoon with the arena.   Cavs will have some tough games there.

Detroit's tallest building getting even taller; latest plans also include observation deck

:-o

Detroit's tallest new building just got taller.

Businessman Dan Gilbert's Bedrock real estate arm said Wednesday that its planned Hudson's site project will now rise to 800 feet, about 70 feet taller than previously announced.

And a public observation deck has been added to the plans, promising the best views for miles around.

The extra height will now allow the tower — still unnamed — to rise several stories taller than the Renaissance Center, instead of just a few feet higher, as before.

Breathtaking! Detroit is quickly becoming the coolest city in the Midwest once again (not that it wasn't already... just a less gritty version of cool)

Plan for vacant riverfront building includes Shakespeare in Detroit space, parking carousel

The historic, long-abandoned Stone Soap building along Detroit's east riverfront will undergo a $27-million transformation into a mixed housing and retail complex, with performance space for a Detroit theater group.

Banyan Investments plans to redevelop property, which has been vacant for 20 years, to create 63 apartment units, with 20 percent reserved for affordable housing for residents making 80 percent of the median area income, or about $38,000 a year.

Restaurants, retail sought for new beach on Detroit riverfront

The Detroit RiverFront Conservancy is looking to create a retail and dining scene at a planned urban beach on the Detroit River.

The conservancy issued a Request for Proposals on Thursday in search of a master tenant to provide the Atwater Beach, which is expected to open in summer 2019, with two food and beverage options for the shed and floating barge to run during warmer seasons.

I was there last weekend and walked by the arena and was I struck by the design, it was awesome. It was like any other mixed-use building on the street, and IIRC some of the bars/restaurants were open even though nothing was going on in the arena that (Saturday) night. Paul McCartney played Sunday.

3rd Meijer store, over 200 apartments reportedly planned for East Jefferson in Detroit


A new apartment building with a small-format grocery store — reportedly a Meijer — has been proposed for East Jefferson Avenue near downtown Detroit.


Lormax Stern Development Co. posted an announcement for the 1475 East Jefferson development on its website that included renderings of the building and other project details, such as 213 apartments and a 42,400-square-foot grocery store. However, that webpage has since been taken down, yet still existed in archive format Wednesday afternoon.
