I walked around the City Modern site yesterday and it is well underway. A local resident told me the carriage homes will be occupied later this year, which seemed do-able based on the progress thus far.

Lafayette Park overhaul: What projects will look like


Pullman Parc



A collaboration between Broder & Sachse Real Estate and Hunter Pasteur Homes & Woodborn Partners, Pullman Parc is a residential development that will include rental and condo units at 1100 St. Aubin. The project, which will start construction sometime between the end of 2018 and the start of 2019, includes 149 apartments and 197 parking spaces for rent.


Meijer



Built by the East Jefferson Development Company LLC, this mixed-use project will have a supermarket as an anchor (at 1475 E. Jefferson) but also will include residential units and other retail spaces. The small-format Meijer  will be the city's third. The five-story building — plus underground parking — will have 213 residential units. Of those, 60 will be studios, 104 will be one-bedrooms, and 49 will be two-bedrooms.


Above the Cut



The Detroit real estate development company The Platform, is behind Above the Cut,  a mixed-use development that will be located between 1920 and 1940 Gratiot, next to the Dequindre Cut. A  groundbreaking is scheduled for April 2019. The project includes 160-180 residential units and 195-240 parking spaces. There also will be 25,000 to 30,000 square feet for retail/commercial space. Of the residential units, 45% are "micro-units" or studios, 50% are one-bedroom units and 5% are two-bedroom units.


Eastern Market mixed-use development



With a projected groundbreaking scheduled for June 2019, this six-story project spans a number of blocks: 1314-1388 Gratiot Ave., 2011-2105 Russell St. 1301-1399 Maple St. and 1350-1366 Service St. Spearheaded by Develop Detroit, the project is mixed-use. There will be 235 residential units, with 47 units — 20%— reserved for people making 60% or less of the AMI.



The development will have 87 studios, 126 one-bedroom units, 31 two-bedroom units, three three-bedroom units and six live workspaces.


Lafayette West



With an expected groundbreaking of April 2019, this project is slated for 1401 Rivard St. The development will include 374 residential units — 60 will be for sale and 314 for rent.

Albert Kahn Building in Detroit's New Center sold, to become 200 apartments

The new owners of the Albert Kahn Building in Detroit's New Center announced Monday they plan to convert the 10-story building into 200 apartments with ground-floor commercial space.

The Kahn building, a neighbor to the city's landmark Fisher Building, was sold last week for an undisclosed price to a development partnership involving Birmingham-based Lutz Real Estate Investments and Farmington Hills-based Northern Equities Group.

The conversion work is expected to begin in about six months.

Alamo Drafthouse planned for Midtown Detroit

Detroit movie fans, this could be big. The innovative Alamo Drafthouse Cinema chain is planning to come to the Motor City.

Detroit Rising Development announced Wednesday that it is planning to build a nine-screen, first-run movie theater that will be operated under a long-term lease by Alamo Drafthouse.

If all goes as planned, the presence of an Alamo Drafthouse in Detroit would represent not just more entertainment options, but also the faith of a hip national chain in the city's future.

The proposed 44,000-square-foot building would be located in Midtown Detroit on vacant land west of Woodward and south of Martin Luther King Boulevard owned by the Detroit Water & Sewerage Department.

New vision for Villages in Detroit: Housing, new retail, streetscapes



City of Detroit planners have outlined a vision for increased development in the Villages district on Detroit’s east side including more affordable housing and more retail development.

In a community meeting Thursday evening, Detroit Planning Director Maurice Cox and his aides showed off their plans to more than 100 community residents. Plans call for extensive new mixed-use development along Kercherval near Mt. Elliott, as well as new and renovated housing projects in the area and significant streetscape improvements including wider sidewalks, protected bike lanes, and landscaping.

Most of the work is expected to go out for bid soon and see construction get underway in 2019.

Moroun confirms Detroit train station sold to Ford: 'Blue Oval will adorn the building'
By CHAD LIVENGOOD


•Train station revitalization "part of enormous plan taking in much more than the depot itself," Moroun says
•Talks with Ford began in mid-October
•Moroun now focused on building new Detroit River bridge[/li][/list]

Detroit's worst-kept secret is official: The Moroun family has sold the historic Michigan Central Station in Detroit to Ford Motor Co. in a landmark real estate deal that could portend a transformation of Corktown and the automaker's re-engagement with the city where it was founded.

Anyone know if there are any potential plans for Ford to bring passenger train service back to the site?

No plans. It would be difficult to do with Amtrak service because it passes through Detroit and heads NW to Royal Oak, Troy and Pontiac where it terminates. And the state has invested a lot of money in this route, including for a new West Detroit track connection and bridge to avoid freight traffic on the line that heads past the Michigan Central station.

However.... A Detroit-Ann Arbor commuter rail service could terminate at Michigan Central station. But why? Amtrak's existing Woodward station is served by Q Line streetcar while Michigan Central station is in no-man's land. At least for now.

If I was king of Detroit, I'd run Detroit-Ann Arbor commuter trains and Amtrak trains to and through Michigan Central station, then build a new track along Jefferson Avenue with a station just east of Cobo Hall, then turn NW either along/replacing the Chrysler Freeway and/or restoring track along the Dequindre Cut Trail right of way, rejoining with the line to Pontiac.

Too bad it got built upon. My idea would have been more realistic had a residential development not been built on the curve entering this former GTW/SEMTA station.

City Modern update in Brush Park

Brush Park’s City Modern development in its entirety will add around 400 new residential units to the historic neighborhood. Developers are expecting its first residents this summer in an ambitious timeline. We visited the construction site of the first apartment building set to open, along with a glimpse of some of the other properties almost ready to go.

City Modern will have six apartment buildings altogether, and two are currently under construction. At the corner of John R and Alfred, the first apartment building will be ready by the end of summer. This one is for the seniors 55 and over, and it’s touted “affordable” at 80 percent Area Median Income (note: this is area, not city). The building will have 54 apartments—mainly one-bedrooms, with seven two-bedroom units. The building will also have substantial first-floor retail space, and 40 parking spaces below ground. Twelve parking spaces are available on a small lot behind the building. Developers aren’t even expecting residents to fill the parking spaces, as there are so many transit options nearby (buses and Qline).

That's funny, I have shots from roughly the same angles when I walked around that area in June 2016:
