Here's a concept which shows the new parking deck + tower:

Ya know, I appreciate the historical character of old inner-city hospitals, but I hate how they're a hodgepodge of buildings. I really wished they were more carefully planned like college campuses.

I've never understood this either. It's like they take absolutely no consideration into site planning and throw up whatever suits their needs whenever and wherever. A lot of suburban hospitals are like that too, and the ones that aren't I suspect are just too new to have had many additions yet. It seems like hospitals would want easy navigation of their campuses to be a priority, but apparently not.

Modern healthcare architecture is a relatively new profession (1950's), but it really comes down to project budgets, timelines and client personalities. Tight urban sites and lack of masterplans drive short-sighted decision-making. Henry Ford made a nod to their historic buildings with their new cancer center. Time will tell what future expansions look like. They do have a site masterplan https://www.huduser.gov/portal/cases...6182014_1.html

Prime and Proper took it's place. Good spot for something new and hopefully not another damn meat/steakhouse.

Here’s a recent shot of the seemingly never ending series of renovations to the Woman’s Club Building. Granted the first were more about maintaining the buildings good appearance and working out any structural issues priming it for tenants is what I’m guessing looking back.

Detroit Woman’s Club Building


It wouldn’t surprise me if Olympia Eddystone slow roll reno on the WC breaking it down into a few phases in attempt to maximize profits by brining the building fully online at just the right time. It’s been a bit of a mystery to me or maybe there have been failed conversions I’m not privy to?

Is it just me or is this the 3rd renovation (phase?) this building has undergone?

Ford is planning a 3rd office building for the MCS campus...

Quote:
Ford Motor Co. is planning to construct a new office building west of Michigan Central Station that will add more density to the mobility tech hub in Detroit that the automaker is developing.

The building will give Ford three office buildings along with a 1,250-vehicle parking deck under construction within a campus on the west end of the Corktown neighborhood, said Rich Bardelli, Ford's construction manager for the Michigan Central Station project.

Ford will build the third office building on vacant land across Vernor Highway from the train station that is currently being used as a parking lot for construction workers, Bardelli said. The land was part of Ford's $90 million purchase of the long-vacant train station from the Moroun family in 2018.

Piety Hill apartment building to be rehabbed for affordable housing

Quote:
Today the city announced another renovation of an old apartment building for affordable housing, plus a major investment in the program. The renovation of the Weber Apartments in Piety Hill, just north of New Center, will be completed in late summer.

The 1927 building has 44 apartments total. Six apartments will be rented to those making at or below 50 percent Area Median Income, while the rest will be at or below 80 percent. One-bedrooms will run between $750 and $1,200 per month.

Hazelwood Partners LLC is leading the $4.4 million project, with a $2.9 million loan through the Detroit Housing for the Future Fund (DHFF).


New resource hub to help homeowners in Jefferson-Chalmers

Quote:
Owning a home in Detroit comes with its own set of challenges. Next month, a new resource will open in Jefferson-Chalmers to help residents navigate these issues. The old Kresge building at Jefferson and Lakewood has been redeveloped and will serve as a resource hub with services to help homeowners with a variety of needs.

According to a press release, services will include home repair loans, housing counseling services, grants and resources; energy efficiency and utility assistance program implementation; weatherization readiness and rooftop funds; credit repair and recovery; financial education; public wifi and computer access; and Detroit Homeowners Property Exemption application support.

The effort was led by Jefferson East Inc. and supported by the Kresge Foundation, Bank of America, Invest Detroit, and more. It's also part of the Strategic Neighborhood Fund, a targeted effort to improve neighborhoods across the city.

This will be a nice addition to Eastern Market



Corned beef titan Grobbel plans grocery store, deli in Eastern Market

Quote:
E.W. Grobbel Sons Inc. plans to open Grobbel's Gourmet Fresh Neighborhood Market and a Sy Ginsberg-branded Jewish-style deli later this year at 2456 Market St. — the former home of Eastern Market Seafood Co., according to a Thursday news release.

The new businesses will operate in a 4,000-square-foot, mixed-use space that stretches from Market Street to Riopelle Street, with each having its own entrance. The grocery store's entrance will be on Market Street, next to DeVries & Co. shop and Vivio's restaurant, while the deli will be accessible from Riopelle, joining Eastern Market Brewing Co. and Detroit City Distillery on that street.

The Under Armour store downtown is closing....

Downtown Detroit's Under Armour store to close permanently

Quote:
The Under Armour Brand House closure will put a hole in the lower Woodward Avenue corridor's street-level retail scene, which has attracted big names including Nike Inc. — its main competitor — Lululemon, Warby Parker, H&M, Madewell and others in recent years.

Under Armour opened in about 17,000 square feet in the basement, first and second floors of Dan Gilbert's former Kresge building at 1201 Woodward Ave. in spring 2017, across from what is now the under-construction mixed-use development on the former site of the J.L. Hudson's department store.

Local nonprofit rehabbing Detroit duplex to help survivors of human trafficking

Quote:
(WXYZ) — A local non-profit is giving a duplex in Detroit a much-needed and costly renovation while fighting human trafficking.

"We're a survivor-led organization where our mission is to help empower those who've been exploited and trafficked," said Tracey Cooley, executive director of Sparrow Freedom Project based in South Lyon.

The nonprofit aims to give survivors of human trafficking the tools needed to lead an independent life. She says the organization is expanding, preparing to rehab the Detroit duplex.
One side is going to be used for residential housing and the other side is going to be used for emergency shelter.


Multi-platinum producer Che Pope launches WRKSHP for emerging artists in Detroit

Quote:
DETROIT (WXYZ) — Detroit’s music landscape is set to have a significant transformation thanks to a new initiative launched today at the city’s capital park.

It's called WRKSHP, and the concept aims to help emerging artists control their creativity as opposed to the traditional format where record labels dictate terms.

"10, 15 years ago you had to go to a major label to find your audience, and that made sense to give away your IP cause they had so much work to do. Now the major labels exexpect you to go find your audience on your own, and then they come for you, and then they still expect to give away your IPs," says WRKSHP Co-Founder and Multi-Platinum Producer Che Pope.

The Multi-Platinum Producer, Che Pope, has worked with many heavy hitters, including Kanye, Jay Z, and The Weeknd. Pope says this initiative will help emerging artists and bring transparency to an outdated system designed to take advantage of artists.

Renovation of the Lee Plaza moves forward:

Detroit's historic Lee Plaza gets $7M in pandemic relief dollars for senior housing

Quote:
Detroit City Council on Tuesday approved a resolution to use federal pandemic recovery dollars to help fund a project to turn a long vacant high-rise — the Lee Plaza on West Grand Boulevard — into senior housing.

The city's housing and revitalization department requested approval to spend $7 million in American Rescue Plan Act dollars to address a funding gap to renovate the 15-story historic tower where 117 units are slated to be set aside as housing for income-eligible residents.

The initial phase of the roughly $60 million project led by Detroit-based developers Roxbury Group and Ethos Development Partners will include housing for seniors. An individual would have to make $28,000 or less to qualify.

The construction is expected to begin next year and wrap up in 2024.

this was all it mentions

Quote:
A spokesperson for the luxury retailer, which is headquartered in Italy and owned by fashion conglomerate Kering Group, confirmed the store will open this summer but would not give the location.

The spokesperson said additional details would be released at a future date. Things like store square footage, number of employees, contractors and build-out costs are not known.

However, a city website that lists site-plan reviews shows the store is to open in the Dan Gilbert-owned former L.B. King & Co. building at 1274 Library St., just down the block from Vincente Cuban Cuisine. A building permit was issued in December for the property.

The building is about 38,000 square feet at Library Street and East Grand River Avenue; Gilbert bought it in early 2015 for an estimated $2.7 million.

Well this is pretty exciting. A milestone for downtown. More big name luxury brands are likely to follow, I knew it was only a matter of time.

Ex-Catholic school in Detroit gets $7.2M renovation, transformed into affordable housing

Quote:
A $7.2 million renovation has turned a former Catholic school in Detroit's Banglatown neighborhood into housing.

City officials and developers marked the opening Monday of the Transfiguration Place Apartments, where the 19 units are for individuals making $28,000 or less, and who will not pay more than 30% of their income on rent and utilities.

The 21,500-square-foot building at 13300 Syracuse near East McNichols includes 17 one-bedroom apartments and two two-bedroom units. Built in 1926, the former school also served as a church until 1950. It's been vacant since 2014. It is the only surviving part of a complex added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2019.

"No longer an educational fixture in the community, Transfiguration is an adaptive reuse at its best. Its scale fits the surrounding landscape, and its use as housing for families fits well in the neighborhood," said Sandra Henriquez, CEO of the Detroit Housing Commission during the Monday ribbon cutting. "Much as the former school was an anchor in this community, this housing can now serve that same purpose."
