Update on the City Winery project...

Incoming City Winery buys large property behind Michigan Central Station


Quote:
The deal included an approximately 18,500-square-foot building at 2640 W. Vernor Hwy. that sits on 0.424 acres, according to city land records. Six other parcels included in the sale, two of which sit on the west side of Saint Anne Street, total about 0.921 acres.


City Winery Detroit's business incorporation documents list Michael Dorf, CEO of City Winery, and an 11th Avenue address in New York City where the company is located.

The company said in January that it would open a Detroit location, along with outposts in four other U.S. cities, Billboard reported at the time. City Winery currently operates in eight U.S. cities.

Detroit-based O'Connor Real Estate was the brokerage firm on the property sale; Moisides declined comment Thursday morning. Vincent Mazzola, senior associate for O'Connor Real Estate, told Crain's that City Winery is planning an announcement on the location in the coming weeks but declined further comment.

What are the chances the center transit lane gets an expansion of the QLine?

This would be the time to do it…plan it thoroughly.

“Q”uicken Line, “C”orktown Line…in a few years “G”reektown Line. Before you know it it’ll be an entire connected system.

An update on the effort to restore some of the old Western Market in Corktown. Right now, the biggest sticking point is getting the necessary funding to get the project off the ground.
Quest to revive Corktown's Western Market faces money hurdles

Quote:
The main structure is expected to have 10,800 square feet available for up to 60 independent vendors, including for Motor City Match participants, Schneider said. The shed also includes a 900 square-foot coffee shop.

Motor City Match is a city-run program that offers financial and technical assistance for growing Detroit businesses.


"We're hoping that an entity involved in Corktown (who can) help us obtain low cost financing to get the project moving and also allow us to offer low rental space for the market's vendors," she said.

The demos at Michigan Central is to make way for green space and pathways to connect MCS, the Book Depository and the parking garage on Bagley. There's renderings here.

As mentioned on the previous page, the demo at Michigan and Washington was likely demolished for a rumored apartment building that's been briefly mentioned in the media the past few years. The parking lot directly north was recently acquired by the owner of the demo'd building and has been mentioned to be part of the plans. There hasn't been a public announcement yet so that's really all we know at this point, but I'd assume we'll hear something in the next few months.
