Yeah, that was the news. Just came out the end of September. All that's left is wait for the groundbreaking.

MAYOR: NEARLY 300 UNITS OF AFFORDABLE HOUSING TO BE BUILT OR PRESERVED AS STATE APPROVES 5 PROJECTS

Quote:
Mayor Mike Duggan and city, state and federal officials joined developers today to celebrate the Michigan State Housing and Development Authority awarding competitive Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) awards to five affordable housing developments in the City of Detroit.

Collectively, the five awards will create or preserve 282 units of affordable housing in the city for residents earning as little as $16,500 per year and up to $44,000 per year. With the inclusion of the previously awarded and future phases of one of the five projects, this brings to 396 the total number of affordable units being created by the developments. Three of the projects will be new construction, creating 271 new units of affordable housing. Two others will renovate a total of 125 units in existing buildings while preserving their affordability for at least the next 30 years. Together, the five projects represent a $122.9 million investment in the city.
Quote:
The largest of the five projects – by far – to be awarded the tax credits in this round is Brush Watson in the historic Brush Park neighborhood immediately north of City Modern. The LIHTC award announced today makes a second phase of the project – with 49 affordable units – possible, bringing the number of new units of affordable housing on the site to 163. The previously approved first phase had already planned to add 60 units, with 48 affordable. The mixed-use, mixed-income project will now feature three buildings that will encompass an entire city block and include approximately 8,000 square feet of commercial space along Brush Street. There also will be underground parking for residents. The project represents a total investment of $65 million.

Brush + Watson

Quote:
Jim Holley Residences: Named after the church’s longtime leader, all 60 units at the Jim Holley Residences will be affordable, and the new-construction building will feature 5,000 square feet of commercial space. Work on the $17.8 million project at 9001 Woodward Ave. is expected to begin in the spring and take 14 to 15 months to complete. The City of Detroit is supporting the project with a $2 million HOME award. MHT Housing of Bingham Farms is serving as the developer. Total investment: $17.8 million.

Jim Holley Residences

Quote:
Left Field at former Tiger Stadium: The other new-construction project receiving LIHTC funding this round will create housing on what was once left field of Tiger Stadium in Corktown, at the Fisher Freeway service drive and Cochrane Street. ACD is developing Left Field, and the first phase includes 60 units, 48 of which are set aside as affordable housing ranging from 30 to 80 percent AMI, with rental assistance available for some of the units. Work is expected to begin next summer. Total investment: $15 million.

Left Field

The two renos:

Quote:
Midtown Square: Located at 93 Seward in New Center, Midtown Square is a historic apartment building originally constructed in the late 1920s. The redevelopment is being performed by John Stanley and Develop Detroit. All 73 of its units will remain affordable. Total investment: $18.5 million.


Friendship Meadows II: This senior-housing complex at 1003 Leland St. was built in the early 2000s and provides much-needed low-income housing in Detroit’s Forest Park neighborhood. The redevelopment will be conducted by Robert Beale. Its 52 affordable units will remain 100 percent affordable. Total investment: $6.6 million.

Hi all, I go to Wayne State and I know that they have been wanting to rebuild the 2nd Avenue bridge over I-94 and they have been doing that, but there is also a development immediately adjacent to that, where Parking Lot #22 used to be along Palmer Avenue. I don't know if it is being used to build some sort of skeleton for the bridge, or if a new building is going up there. I am just puzzled as to why there would be something being built there. I will grab a couple pictures soon. I just wanted to see if anyone knew anything about this, if it is a separate building or project or if it is solely just related to the bridge building. Thanks!

Yeah they are building the bridge there. I think in order to keep the highway open as much as possible, they are building the bridge there and then rolling it over the highway.

Plans for Amazon distribution center gets Detroit City Council approval

Quote:
A development proposal that would bring a $400-million Amazon distribution center to the former Michigan State Fairgrounds was approved by Detroit City Council on Tuesday.

Construction could start in the coming weeks on the 3.8-million-square-foot distribution center there. The Sterling Group and Hillwood Investment Properties will buy and develop the site, and, as a part of the deal, will pay for a $7-million Detroit Department of Transportation transit center.

It's been more than a decade since the Michigan State Fair was held in Detroit, at Woodward Avenue and 8 Mile, and the deal likely marks the end to an era of failed projects at the site.

Another townhome development has come out of nowhere in Corktown:

Townhome Condominium Project Underway in Detroit’s Corktown

Quote:
Construction is underway on a 14-unit townhome development near the former Tiger Stadium in Detroit’s Corktown neighborhood. The cost of the development was not disclosed.

The Eleventh, located at 2037 11th St., is being developed by Premium Development Group and Ferlito Group, both based in Detroit. The 14 residences come in two offerings — 12, two-bedroom and two, one-bedroom townhomes.

Construction began in August and is expected to be completed in two phases. The first phase, consisting of seven units, is slated for completion in the summer of 2021.

Gallery: Nothing Is Square About Detroit's New Apartments At 'The Caterpillar'

Quote:
Calling this residential design unusual is like describing the president as eccentric -- true, but too mild.

An imaginative project nearing completion not far from downtown is named The Caterpillar, and the overhead view above shows why.

That slinky hull is 192 feet long and 46 feet wide. Inside will be six apartments and two live-work spaces created by locally based Prince Concepts, which in 2107 opened the sleek True North development less than two blocks away -- also in the style of military Quonset huts.

It describes the new spread in Core City, on 16th Street between West Forest Avenue and Buchanan Street, as "inspired space," "the cathedral" and "sculpture." Open floors plans have a central island and no enclosed bedrooms.








Detroit Sells $80M in Bonds to Add and Enhance Parks, Trails, Culture, and More

The projects include updates to more than 25 city parks, phase one of the Joe Louis Greenway, repairs to firehouses, police precincts, and recreation centers, improvements to the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History and the Detroit Historical Museum, and construction of an expanded animal control facility.
MGM Grand Detroit to Open D.PRIME Steakhouse on Oct. 30

Thanks for sharing those TCF tower photos. It's moving along faster than I thought. FYI, there is a dedicated thread for this project. And in the future, can you downsize those images a little? They are huge and hard to view on a normal-sized monitor.

Here's an exterior & interior view of the new William Clay Ford Center for Athletic Medicine, posted via Instagram by Hobbs + Black Architects -

I like this new larger design a lot more than the original design. Looks great.



Here's the 2016 design:

I wonder if the other new builds/renovation are still planned for the Paradise Valley project? We haven't heard anything in awhile.

UAW-GM riverfront training center sold, to be renamed 'The Icon'

Quote:
After getting caught up in a federal investigation into union corruption, the training center along the Detroit riverfront jointly owned by General Motors Co. and the United Auto Workers has been sold to two developers and will be renamed "The Icon."

The sale of the 420,000-square-foot building on 18 acres at 200 Walker to a joint venture between Auburn Hills-based Moceri Cos. and Detroit-based 400 Monroe Associates closed last week, partner Dominic Moceri said. The developers expect to lease the building formerly housing the UAW-GM Center for Human Resources to a major business, government agency or university.

"It’s not just a building; it's a campus," Moceri said. "The setting is unmatched in the entire Midwest with an international location on the Detroit riverfront that has a walkway from Belle Isle to the TCF Center, and the setting is fit to fit the staff of whether it's a Fortune 50 company, an educational community or a government operations. The setting is second to none."


Sale of former state fairgrounds can proceed after appeals court lifts restraining order

Quote:
The sale of the former state fairgrounds in Detroit can proceed after a temporary restraining order on the sale was lifted Wednesday.

The proposed deal, which would bring an Amazon distribution center to the site, was announced in August, and a battle over the 142-acre property on the north side ensued between the State Fairgrounds Development Coalition, a group that has been long involved with the land, and the City of Detroit.

Last week, a temporary restraining order was issued for the sale of the land after the Sugar Law Center, on behalf of the State Fairgrounds Development Coalition, filed a lawsuit that said the city violated the law.

A judge on the Michigan Court of Appeals overturned that decision Wednesday morning.


Cleanup work set to begin on next phase of the Joe Louis Greenway on city’s west side

Quote:
Two different paths, one for bicycles and joggers with a second for those that want to enjoy the Joe Louis Greenway at a more leisurely pace.

Landscaping designed with a more “natural” feel that includes native plants that attract birds and bees.

Charging stations for personal devices, bicycle repair stations, and barbecue grills and seating areas.

These are but a few of the things people want to see in the next stretch of the Joe Louis Greenway, the planned 27.5-mile-long bicycle and pedestrian pathway that loops through parts of Detroit and Dearborn. The findings were gathered from a survey at a public engagement session in August.

A second public engagement session was held virtually Thursday, Oct. 29, allowing the public the chance to get a sneak peek of the next planned phase of the Joe Louis Greenway. Survey results from the first such meeting were revealed and more survey questions were posed.

Cleanup efforts are set to begin this month for a stretch of overgrown rail corridor once owned by Conrail and now owned by the city. Cleanup crews working into the cold months will better position construction crews that are scheduled to begin work in Spring 2021, said Jeff Klein, the city’s deputy chief of landscape architecture.
Crain's recently ran an article on a new Islandview development called Kercheval South. I can't read the article because I'm not a subscriber, but it can be found here.

Can't figure out if the bottom two floors above the retail is parking or not. Searched the city commission meeting and there was no mention of it.

I know the original proposal contained a few levels of parking so I wouldn't doubt it. Unless the developers have purchased a nearby lot or something like what the developers of The Exchange have done.

Glad to see Paradise Valley project back I thought it was dead until I saw it on the planning commision agenda for a rezoning. Speaking rezoning one that could be really transformational is coming to area around that Eastern Market. Especially changing the industrial zoning along the Dequindre Cut to allow for mixed use development could bring some interesting projects.

Detroit pitches plan to seek federal grant for affordable housing in Corktown

Quote:
Detroit — The city of Detroit is pitching a multi-phase plan to bring an influx of new affordable and infill housing units, green space and other amenities to its Corktown neighborhood.

The vision was crafted by Detroit's Housing and Revitalization Department as part of a plan to compete for $30 million in federal grant funding. It will require Detroit City Council's approval on a series of land transfers to reinvigorate distressed properties and vacant land in the community.
The proposal's three projects:

Quote:
The plan calls for the razing and rebuilding of the Clement Kern Gardens, a community of 87 affordable town-home-style units.

The effort, the city noted, would begin no sooner than 2022 and would provide all current residents of the Kern with an option to stay in the rebuilt complex or, if they choose, priority to relocate to another Corktown property.
Quote:
The project also calls for the addition of infill housing on 143 vacant lots in North Corktown controlled by the city but spread across 14.6 acres. The concept also would include a new neighborhood service hub and outdoor recreation site to be built upon the site of the former Owen Academy, which shuttered in 2012.
Quote:
The third component of the overall plan also includes a previously approved multi-phase development on the left field of the former Tiger Stadium site.

The first phase, on a 3.7-acre site along the Fisher Service Drive and Cochrane Street, would call for a $15 million, 60-unit apartment building with 48 units of affordable housing ranging from 30% to 80% of the area median income.
Owners of Filthy Americans brand opening arts and culture space, aim to inspire a new generation

Quote:
Filthy Americans Arts & Cultural Preservation Center will open on Nov. 18 at 1313 Holden St. across from the Lincoln Street Art Park and Recycle Here! Owners, business partners, and lifelong Detroiters Rockwell and William “BJ” Smith are veterans in the city’s underground hip hop and techno music scenes looking to inspire the next generation.
