New Detroit hotel, The Siren, to open in November



Detroit’s Wurlitzer Building has come a long way from 2011, when its crumbling cornice sent a 50-pound chunk of terracotta crashing through the roof of the loft apartment next door.

That was then. Now the Wurlitzer, at 1509 Broadway, is stabilized and midway through a $23 million renovation to convert the 14-story, 1926 structure by architect Robert Finn into a 106-room, upscale boutique hotel to be called The Siren.

Detroit, Conrail strike $4.3M land deal to finish path

The city reached a $4.3 million deal with Conrail to acquire a 7.5-mile railroad property that will complete a pedestrian and bike pathway encircling Detroit.

The acquisition, announced Thursday, fills the largest gap in the 26-mile Inner Circle Greenway, which connects residents and neighborhoods to parks, commercial areas, the Detroit riverfront and downtown.

Officials say they expect to start design and construction on the greenway this fall once it’s approved by the City Council.

Troy proposal would create downtown center

Looking to create one, Troy officials want to move forward with an ambitious $328 million plan that would dramatically change how its current civic center property looks and operates.

The proposed 125-acre Troy Town Center would create a walkable urban center with a wide range of housing, retail and commercial buildings, a five-acre lake, a hotel and other amenities at the Troy Civic Center complex, at Big Beaver and Interstate 75.

Detroit’s Shipping Container Food Hall Might Actually Break Ground This Week

After years of delays it seems like Detroit’s long-awaited shipping container food hall may finally be breaking ground in Cass Corridor. Detroit Shipping Co. confirmed today that the project will be putting shovels to dirt this week at 474 Peterboro Street near The Peterboro and 8 Degrees Plato, according to Metro Times.

The mixed-use entertainment complex will feature five food vendors — Brujo Tacos & Tapas, Coop, Monty’s Beef Co., Detroit Dog Co., and (as of today) Bangkok 96. Additionally, Detroit Shipping Co. will operate two bars, pop-up art space, and retail space.

West Riverfront Park to get 'world-class' renovation



Detroit's West Riverfront Park is getting a facelift.

The Detroit RiverFront Conservancy is using a $345,000 grant from the Ralph C. Wilson Jr. Foundation to fund a design competition that will transform the park into "a world-class gathering place for Detroiters and visitors alike," according to a Monday news release from the conservancy.

The 22-acre park between Rosa Parks Boulevard and Eighth Street had been privately owned for almost 100 years before the conservancy bought it in 2014. Since opening to the public, it has hosted concerts — Jimmy Buffet in 2015 and Aretha Franklin last month, for example — and provided the community a place to enjoy the picturesque views.

Affordable housing targeted for Detroit’s downtown



Bedrock and Detroit officials announced Monday an agreement that will create or maintain about 700 affordable housing units in the greater downtown area.

The plan includes affordable new construction and existing units that would have otherwise converted to market rate, giving those with lower incomes an opportunity to live in downtown or in Midtown despite overall rising rental rates.

Motown Museum expansion gets financial boost from Lear



The Motown Museum has taken another leap toward its planned expansion, following a $750,000 donation from Lear Corp.

With an additional $400,000 raised at a June gala hosted by Lear, the Southfield company's efforts amount to more than $1.1 million for the expansion project, which would transform the Hitsville, U.S.A., site into a 50,000-square-foot exhibit, performance and retail complex.

The Lear gift follows $6 million from Ford and UAW-Ford and $2 million from the William Davidson Foundation, as the Motown Museum continues its $50-million fund-raising effort.

Wayne County moves forward with Gilbert's jail proposal - but not a done deal yet

A $520.3-million offer from billionaire developer Dan Gilbert's Rock Ventures that would build a criminal-justice complex near I-75 in Detroit and replace Wayne County's unfinished jail with a $1-billion commercial development will move forward, according to Wayne County officials.
---
According to Evans, his team is working with Rock Ventures’ representatives to negotiate terms of a deal to create a new criminal-justice center, but if negotiations don't result in a contract that's in the best interest of county residents and taxpayers, the county has 120 days from June 28 — the date Walsh submitted its proposal — to restart negotiations to complete the unfinished jail.

$45M development of Detroit's old Checker Cab building to break ground

Crews plan to break ground on a massive new development project in Detroit's Corktown neighborhood around the old Checker Cab building at Elizabeth and Eighth streets.

Detroit concert venue damaged by construction crews next door

A concert venue in Detroit's Corktown neighborhood has been forced to shut down after construction crews at an adjacent housing development caused structural damage to the building Wednesday.

Large cracks could be seen along the northern wall of the UFO Factory, 2110 Trumbull Ave., as Soave Real Estate Group's construction team worked on Elton Park, a new mixed-use development project at the former Checker Cab building.

Grand River Avenue is going on a road diet

More bike lanes are coming to the city and another one of our very wide roads will be going on a diet.

MDOT is hosting an open house for the public to give an overview on what’s to come for Grand River Avenue from Cass Avenue to I-94. This will start right around the bus station and Beacon Park, past the arena district and Motor City Casino, along Woodbridge, and past True North.

Grand River is currently being resurfaced, so the protected bike lanes should go into effect fairly soon. The road will go from seven lanes of traffic down to five, with bike lanes and some parking.
---
Also to notice on Cass, new bike lanes and bike boxes, a first for the city, are in the process of being painted. This gives cyclists a designated place to stop and turn left onto another street or simply wait for a green light to go straight through. Motorists are to stop behind the bike boxes at red lights. The bike boxes and lanes are bright green, much clearer than other bike lanes in the city.

Detroit luring manufacturers to industrial park, vacant land
Corey Williams, Associated Press Updated 7:19 am, Sunday, August 13, 2017

DETROIT (AP) — Inside a fenced construction site on Detroit's east side, heavy machines are digging, shoving and hauling away tons of dirt in preparations for the latest addition to the city's industrial landscape.

Auto parts supplier Flex-N-Gate is expected to bring 750 jobs to Detroit when it completes its 350,000-square-foot (32,500-square-meter) plant at the Interstate 94 Industrial Park. It will join several other firms that are investing millions of dollars where only so many years ago manufacturing jobs were disappearing.

The changes come as Detroit, like many other Rust Belt cities, looks to lure firms with just what they're looking for: vacant land where they can build and grow.

New details, renderings for Gilbert's Monroe Block plan show huge ambitions



Businessman Dan Gilbert’s ambitious goal of “going vertical” with new downtown towers looks about to become reality big time.

Gilbert’s team plans to break ground in December on its Hudson’s site plan, an architecturally stunning mixed-use assemblage that will become Detroit’s tallest building.

And Gilbert plans to follow that in early 2018 breaking ground on his Monroe Block project.

New renderings and details released to the Free Press show the mostly vacant two-block stretch will see a shimmering 35-story office tower facing Campus Martius, backed by impressive amounts of retail, residential apartments, and new public plazas and "green" space.

Detroit hotel kicks off construction with rooftop tree removal at historic high-rise

Developers kicked off construction of a hotel inside the historic, long-vacant Metropolitan Building on Tuesday with the removal of a 13-foot-tall tree from the roof.

The $32-million "Element Detroit" hotel project will be an extended-stay hotel under the Starwood collection.

It will include 110 one- and two-bedroom units with kitchens, 2,000-square-feet of meeting spaces on the second floor mezzanine and about 7,000-square-feet of retail space on the lower level of the building at 33 John R. St.

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.

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.

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.
