Eastern Market is really a cool area.  I'm surprised there hasn't been more development in and around it.

Two landmark Eastern Market buildings sold



Two Eastern Market buildings that house some of the neighborhood's most popular spots — including Russell Street Deli, Supino Pizzeria and Bert's jazz club — have been sold in seven-figure deals to the same father-and-son team.

The shops have been told by the new owners there are no immediate plans to remove the businesses.

The Russell Street building that hosts five independent operations — Russell Street Deli, Supino, Zeff's Coney Island, Mootown Ice Cream Shoppe and Detroit Kung Fu Academy — sold for $20 million in late June, according to Wayne County Register of Deeds records. The two-story, 18,000-square foot building at the corner of Russell Street and the Fisher Service Drive has residences on the second floor.

Chemical Bank to move headquarters to Detroit, bringing 500-plus employees

The largest Michigan-based bank is moving its headquarters to Michigan's largest city.

In one of the biggest corporate recruitment wins for the city in recent memory, Chemical Bank (NASDAQ: CHFC), currently based in Midland, it expects to move 500 or so employees into a new high-rise at Woodward Avenue and Elizabeth Street in downtown Detroit. The building would be next to the Ilitch family's Little Caesars Global Resource Center.

The plan calls for completion within the next 2 1/2 years.

Gilbert plans 913 residences in $300 million-plus development at former Brewster-Douglass site

A more than $300 million mostly residential development by Dan Gilbert is planned for the site of the former Brewster-Douglass housing projects just outside of downtown.

This is the latest incarnation of plans for the property that have been discussed for the past several years as the greater downtown area has seen dozens of development and redevelopment projects in the works and coming to fruition.

The effort by city officials and the billionaire mortgage and real estate mogul's team that began more than two years ago is slated to include 913 residential units, comprised of 648 apartments and 265 for-sale units spread across approximately 22 acres and dozens of buildings of varying heights off of I-75 south of Mack Avenue near the Brush Park neighborhood.

It's also expected to include 3.2 acres of public space, 19,000 square feet of retail, another 60,000 square feet of early childhood education space and a hotel with approximately 80 rooms. In addition, the area's street grid is expected to be re-established and connections across I-75 are planned.

3 new Detroit residential buildings will have high, low rent mix



The city of Detroit announced plans Thursday for three new residential buildings containing 367 apartments or condos in the once-desolate Brush Park neighborhood that will offer an aggressive mix of market-rate and more affordable rents.

The projects, totaling $102 million in costs, will be headed by private developers on large vacant lots that were once owned by the city. All three are to begin construction next year and be done by late 2021.

The Detroit Riverfront Conservancy broke ground Monday afternoon on Atwater Beach, the latest addition to the city's waterfront attractions.

Featuring a sandy "beach," play areas for kids and food and drink offerings, Atwater Beach will sit along the east riverfront between Chene Park East and Stroh River Place.

When opened next year, the park also will feature a floating café barge serving food and drinks.

i was just in and around detroit recently, during the hoopla of aretha’s funeral. the airport was pretty dead. i dk that that means anything, maybe that downtown is a-boomin again due to suburban locals reviving it more so than move ins? probably. and of course that would be the best thing. we’ll be back to visit friends next summer and i now have a niece who just got married and moved to windsor, so i am looking forward to spending more time downtown.
