There really hasn't been that much constructed in the last ten years though, mostly a lot of boutique hotels and nothing large scale. Both Hudsons and Godfrey are only in the 200+ range. They won't be enough either when they come online and Edition is ultra luxury, not like a normal hotel. Seattle recently built a Hyatt Regency with over a thousand rooms. We've gotten nothing nearly that big, that's the kind of hotel Detroit needs.

The city has been extremely hotel constrained for a long time now. It's really not shocking at all it can absorb way more rooms.

You’re probably right, just seems like a lot when you count the projects, but most have been relatively small. It would be amazing to get something iconic architecturally on the waterfront.

A little more info from Detroit News:

Quote:

“What's happening is that there are events that are just straight up choosing not to come here simply because they would have to shuttle-bus their attendees and that's just not optimal, especially when you have choices in other cities like Houston or in Indianapolis where they've got 2,000 rooms connected to the convention center,” he said.

As last year ended, hotel room occupancy in Detroit’s central business district was steadily returning to pre-pandemic levels, according to STR, a global hospitality data and analytics company. The year-to-date occupancy as of October was 51.9%, up from 34.1% for the same time period in 2021 and 28.6% in 2020.

As of October 2019, occupancy in the central business was 69.9%. That occupancy level is just shy of the level when a hotel market would typically consider adding new hotels, which is north of 70%, Romy Bhojwani, director of hospitality market analytics at CoStar Group, STR’s parent company, told The News in December.

I would think adding another tower across the street at the pontch would be a great location but our, not so smart, city council denied the permit? They had the money and wanted to start construction! I hope they reconsider? The more construction the better!

Plans for a second tower were revived back in November.

New partnership seeks to raise $350 million for Joe Louis Greenway, riverfront

Quote:
The groups announced the Unified Greenway Partnership on Tuesday after the Detroit City Council pledged $3 million annually to each project for maintenance and operation, contingent on the new partnership jointly raising $100 million to create a permanent endowment at the Community Foundation of Southeast Michigan.

That endowment will help fund the perpetual care of the 27.5-mile Joe Louis Greenway that will connect the Detroit Riverfront with 23 neighborhoods in Detroit, Hamtramck, Highland Park and Dearborn and the 5.5-mile Detroit Riverwalk, with some parts under construction and other existing and developing public parks along its span.

The conservancy has raised more than $200 million over the past 20 years to revitalize the Detroit Riverfront, an investment that's generated more than $2 billion in public and private investment. Nearly 90 percent of the east riverfront is complete, and several parks are in development, including: the Southwest Greenway set to open in May; the Uniroyal Promenade, set to complete the east riverfront when it opens this coming fall; and the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Centennial Park expected to open next year.

Henry Ford Health, Tom Gores team up on massive $2.5 billion development in Detroit

Henry Ford Health, Tom Gores team up on massive $2.5 billion development in Detroit






Quote:
Henry Ford Health plans to build a new $1.8 billion hospital in Detroit that will anchor a broad $2.5 billion development vision it is teaming up on with Detroit Pistons owner Tom Gores and Michigan State University that includes new residential, commercial and possible hotel space.

The projects mark a major move by Henry Ford to transform itself into a destination for health care and a major expansion of private equity billionaire Gores' investment in Detroit. If the full vision materializes, the scale of the redevelopment would rival plans for the $1.5 billion District Detroit and Dan Gilbert’s downtown projects in the re-shaping of an entire section of the city.


The plan to re-envision the neighborhood surrounding the century-old Henry Ford Hospital spans multiple blocks south of West Grand Boulevard on both sides of the John C. Lodge Freeway/M-10. It is being driven by a team-up of the Detroit-based health system, Gores and MSU, among other stakeholders.

...

The new all-private-room hospital would be over 1 million square feet constructed across West Grand Boulevard from Henry Ford's existing hospital; the existing Health Alliance Plan building at 2850 W. Grand Blvd. would be torn down to clear the way for it, which is expected to be similar in height to the 489-foot Fisher Building two blocks east, representatives from the health system told Crain's.

The new tower will also include a larger emergency department, alleviating congestion in the existing hospital. The legacy hospital will remain in operation but with a smaller clinical footprint. A skywalk and a series of tunnels will connect the new structure and the existing hospital.

This is huge for New Center, between this and the new Amtrak station MDOT is planning, New Center will have a totally different vibe by the end of the decade.
Another project was announced today as well for New Center. The historic Cadillac Assembly plant will be turned into 90 residential units.

New owner of historic former Cadillac Assembly Plant eyes $27 million residential conversion

A Detroit-based real estate firm is attempting to turn a historic TechTown neighborhood building into new apartments in a $27 million redevelopment.
Greatwater Opportunity Capital LLC purchased the former Cadillac Assembly Plant building at 450 Amsterdam St. between Cass and Second avenues for $3.35 million in April and is proposing to convert it into 90 rental units.The company is seeking Historic District Commission approval Wednesday to remove some parts of the building that were constructed long after it was built in 1905 and not deemed historic, as well as replace windows with contemporary but historically accurate ones.
