The Lee Plaza redevelopment is moving forward....
Redevelopment of Detroit's long-vacant 17-story Lee Plaza moving forward


Quote:
The initial phase of the roughly $60 million project would rehab nine floors of the historic and long-empty building and create 117 apartments for income-eligible seniors on housing vouchers.

A later phase would redo seven more floors for additional housing, with the specific type of housing still to be determined.

The redevelopment is a joint effort by Detroit-based Roxbury Group and Ethos Development Partners and received a key approval this week for $1.5 million in Low-Income Housing Tax Credits from the Michigan State Housing Development Authority. The credits have a $15 million value to the project over 10 years.

Gilbert buys former UAW building on Detroit riverfront



Quote:
The 200 Walker Street acquisition includes:

420,000 SF property:
West Building: 8-story office tower and 2-story auditorium
Center Building: 3-story training center & warehousing space
East Building: 1-story partial mezzanine & full-service cafeteria
880 Parking garage spaces

In a release, Bedrock says it’s working to develop a vision for the two properties and the areas surrounding it.

“While plans and programming for these parcels are still underway, Bedrock is in the early stages of imagining a vision for the area, including sustainable infrastructure, mixed-income housing, dining, office, public space, and more - all beside the Aretha Franklin Amphitheater and Atwater Beach.”

The price of the building was not disclosed.

Why did UAW leave in the first place?

GM negotiated closing it in the last contract talks. I think the building was involved in some corruption.

Glad to see this moving forward
Lafayette West development snags $52 million in construction financing

Quote:
Bennett said construction began in October with excavation and back-filling on the 5.2-acre site, making way for a 35-unit condo building across five stories and a 102-unit apartment building across five stories, with occupancy expected to begin in the second quarter 2023. Construction on the remaining units — 53 condominiums across two buildings and 132 apartments across two buildings — is tentatively expected to begin in early 2023.

Art Center apartment building to be renovated for affordable housing

Quote:
A historic apartment building located in the Art Center area of Midtown will receive a $2.9 million renovation. LISC Detroit announced the upcoming renovation of the Belnord, which opened in 1914. The building will offer its rates as affordable and will not displace any current residents with the renovation.

The development is led by Ed Siegel's JacobStreet LLC. The development received gap funding through a $2.46 million loan from the Detroit Housing for the Future Fund.

The 24 apartments will be fully renovated, and five additional apartments will be added by using 3,000 square feet of space at the garden level. Renovations will also include a new roof and upgraded HVAC, plumbing, and electrical.

The Tapestry project was cancelled awhile ago. There hasn’t been any announcements on the future of the building.

The Godfrey in Corktown only has a “soft affiliation” with Curio. It’s currently under construction.

Welcome to SSP!

The developers of the United Artists Building are aksing for a loan increase.

United Artists Building developer seeks $6 million in additional public funding
Quote:
Emmett Moten Jr., the Detroit developer spearheading the long-delayed project, is asking the Downtown Development Authority to approve another $4.6 million in loan funding to the development entity responsible for the redevelopment, Bagley Development Group LLC, and a new $1.4 million loan to that group's managing member, 150 Bagley Managing Member LLC, to bridge a financing gap in the project that would bring 148 new residential units to the historic building on Grand Circus Park at Bagley and Clifford streets.

The DDA's Finance Committee last week recommended that the loan increase request be forwarded to the full DDA board for its consideration at the next scheduled board meeting Jan. 12, according to a spokesperson for the Detroit Economic Growth Corp., which staffs the DDA and other city economic development entities.

Nice to see the lewis College of Business coming back...

Whitmer signs bills reestablishing Michigan's first HBCU
Quote:
"Michigan's first historically Black college shut its doors eight years ago. Next year, those doors will reopen," Tate said in the statement. "I was proud to work with colleagues on both sides of the aisle and the governor to have an HBCU back in the city of Detroit. I look forward to seeing the Pensole Lewis College of Business and Design create valuable opportunities for its students and businesses across Michigan and Detroit."

The college will be a tuition-free academy with funding from billionaire Dan Gilbert's Gilbert Family Foundation and Target Corp., and will start out from the seventh floor of CCS's A. Alfred Taubman Center for Design Education building in New Center. The plan is to find and move to a more permanent site.

Uh the city is not in desperate need for parking garages. Why does HF even need this exactly? They just built parking with the cancer institute.

This NIMBY "bureaucracy" is how it works in every democratic country so nothing unusual.

I wouldn’t be too happy if I lived in one of those homes on the south side of Seward Ave losing out on morning sunlight and at the same time finding out after the fact that the design isn’t aesthetically appealing and or doesn’t include any street front retail. I’d have to hear more from both sides on what exactly the issues are it’s not as if there’s anything inherently wrong with building a parking deck next to the lodge.

I guess for me it comes down to is HF giving a nod to the fact that they are plunking down a massive garage in a neighborhood that has put in effort to keep itself desirable and now stands to reap the rewards?

Is the garage more than just a simple concrete structure would it house any retail? If we weren’t talking about a 7 story parking garage in a residential part of midtown I would be prolly in agreement to let them just put that shit up quick while the need is at its most.

I agree. No rendering or information was released. I thought that all new parking structures had to incorporate some level of ground floor retail.

The existing employee garage is at the end of its life. It will potentially be demo'd for a new inpatient bed tower - Henry Ford is out of room and needs to begin replacing services that are in its historic buildings facing Grand Blvd. In the long-term outpatient services move south of Grand Blvd and inpatient stays north. Presumably the original historic structures will not serve Inpatient + Treatment/Diagnostic functions as those will be incorporated into newer structure(s). This new parking deck is likely an enabling project for future expansion.

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