Demolition begins for new Wayne County criminal justice complex construction

Quote:
Dan Gilbert's Bedrock LLC has started demolition to clear the way for a new $533 million Wayne County criminal justice complex.

The demolition of a Detroit Department of Transportation paint shop and maintenance shop, which began last month, is set to be completed in the first quarter next year by Carleton-based demolition contractor Homrich Inc., said Jozef Guziewicz, Bedrock's vice president of construction.

"Until summer time, there will be site prep and grading and getting rid of all the old electrical stuff that's been abandoned," he said Friday.

Construction is expected to be complete by the middle of 2022. The county then has six months to move into its new criminal justice complex.




New parking deck gets HDC approval as city weighs large SoMA lease

Quote:
A new 580-space parking deck on a large development site has received a green light from the Detroit Historic District Commission as the city seriously considers a lease for about 100,000 square feet for several departments at the project site.

The deck, which would be part of the development generally referred to as South of Mack Avenue, would have six levels of above-grade parking but "visually appear" like a five-story deck, according to commission briefing documents.

In addition, the city is mulling an office space and parking deal over 10 years for several departments, including parks, transportation, health, general services and Detroit Employment Solutions Corp., according to a source familiar with the matter. They would move into existing buildings on the SoMA site from other locations around the city.

LCA has always been billed as more of a venue as opposed to just a sports stadium and while The District's glacial pace of development is frustrating at best this is a good measure of success for the project so far. Detroit lays claim that it's “home to the second largest theatre district in the United States behind only New York City" while that is debatable based on how you designate it. So LCA being the 3rd most attended venue in the U.S. isn't a surprise hopefully we will start to see more tangible progress in The District.

Little Caesars Arena ranked 6th most-attended arena in the world

Crain's Detroit Business
December 19, 2018

-Detroit concert venue that's just over a year old saw 846,000 ticket sales in 2018
-Third highest ticket sales in the U.S. after New York City, Los Angeles venues
-LCA is home to Red Wings and Pistons, but sports not included in
Quote:
Little Caesars Arena ended its first full year of operation as the sixth most-attended arena venue in the world.

Concert industry trade magazine Pollstar publishes an annual worldwide arena ranking based on ticketed events (excluding pro sports team games).

The recently built venue just north of downtown Detroit along Woodward Avenue ranked third in the U.S. with 845,651 concert ticket sales, according to Pollstar. It came in behind Madison Square Garden Arena in New York City (1.16 million tickets sold) and the Forum in Los Angeles (1.12 million sold).

As for the global rankings, Little Caesars Arena came in behind Paris' AccorHotels Arena, which ranked fifth on Pollstar's list. Madison Square Garden was No. 1 worldwide, followed by the Forum and WiZink Center in Madrid.

Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids ranked 71st internationally with 260,700 ticket sales. That's up from 93rd last year with 206,573 tickets sold.

Despite being open for less than four months in 2017, Little Caesars Arena ranked 83rd internationally for concert ticket sales last year.

Family sells $90,000 Brush Park condo in Detroit for $1 million
JC Reindl, Detroit Free Press

Quote:
In mid-2012, Andrew Wallace and his son, Nathaniel, bought a two-bedroom condominium in Detroit's then-gritty and desolate Brush Park for $90,000.

The Wallaces, who own a small IT business in Troy, did roughly $200,000 in renovations and then watched as Brush Park evolved from an area that was largely avoided into the city's Next Hot Neighborhood.

This October, they sold the 4,400-square-foot condo to an out-of-state buyer. The sale price: $1.25 million.

"It was surreal," Nathaniel Wallace, who lives in Detroit, recalled last week. "We knew we had something on our hands. I didn't think it would be over $1 million."

I think the plan has always been to fill in that area up to the existing height.

New Biggby Coffeeshop is open on Livernois between 6 & 7 Mile in Detroit

Quote:
The Biggby we had previously reported was coming to 18685 Livernois is now open. The same folks own it as the location in Ferndale at Livernois and 9 Mile.

If you’ve been to a Biggby, you know what’s in this store. This is similar to the ones I’ve been to in the past. Lots of coffee drinks like lattes and freezes. Light food options, all of that.

The location seemed to be doing steady business during the two hours I watched.

Wayne State plans to move 19th century David Mackenzie house

Quote:
Detroit — Inside a Queen Anne-style home on Cass, Wayne State University founder David Mackenzie would entertain guests in his oak-paneled library, wowing them with his fluency in several languages and his ability to read and write Sanskrit.

More than 90 years after Mackenzie’s death, his 1895 home still stands, but in a matter of weeks, it’ll have a new address as university officials begin the arduous process of moving the house.
Quote:
To move the house around the block to Second and Forest, Wayne State has hired International Chimney for the move, the same New York-based firm that helped move the Gem Theatre in 1997.


Dan Gilbert buys warehouse in shadow of Ford train depot

Quote:
Detroit — Dan Gilbert's Bedrock has purchased a warehouse in the shadow of the former Michigan Central Station that Ford Motor Co. is overhauling as its future center for automotive mobility.

The five-story, 138,000-square-foot building at 1800 18th St. is west of the former train station just past the train viaduct on Vernor Highway. That makes this purchase Bedrock's first foray in the area of southwest Detroit often called Mexicantown. The viaduct is often considered the dividing line between the Corktown and Mexicantown neighborhoods. Even more specific, the stretch of 18th Street where the warehouse is located is also part of the Hubbard-Richard historic district within the Mexicantown area.

Bedrock confirmed it bought the building late last year. The purchase price hasn't been disclosed. The company issued this statement late Tuesday: “As investment ramps up in Detroit’s Corktown neighborhood, Bedrock is excited to have acquired the property at 1800 18th St., which we feel has great potential, especially given its proximity to Ford’s Michigan Central Station. We look forward to determining our development vision for the property.”

Henry Ford Health System to make art space out of vacant Detroit building

Quote:
Henry Ford Health System is creating an art-focused community center out of a vacant building near its Detroit hospital.

A $200,000 youth and family grant from the West Bloomfield-based Vera and Joseph Dresner Foundation is funding the project, the health system announced Wednesday in a news release.

Called ArtBlock, the reactivated 3,700-square-foot property would be Henry Ford Health's biggest investment yet in public art and arts education, the release said.

The health system plans to cover the building in Detroit's Northwest Goldberg neighborhood with murals and employ graffiti artists to decorate its interior. When open in May, it will host family activities and workshops. It will also feature a textile installation and rideable, animal-shaped metal sculptures.

A drive by this morning confirms work is ramping up on the two structures adjacent LCA on Henry St. Both are apart of the larger phase 2 District Detroit and were announced to be office space instead of the originally planned residential.
Had conversation with sales rep from The Platform group. The large and very expensive Cass & York condominiums at 5935 Cass Ave will break ground in March!

MDOT to transplant legendary Detroit recording studio for I-94 rebuild

ANNALISE FRANK
Crain's Detroit
January 11, 2019


-State transportation department bought United Sound Systems Recording Studios and its parking lot for $1.7 million
-Decision was years in the making, as MDOT sought a way to avoid harming the historic property while getting I-94 rebuilt
-Aretha Franklin, Miles Davis among those to record hits there


Quote:
MDOT bought the United Sound Systems Recording Studios at 5840 Second Ave. in Midtown and its adjacent parking lot Dec. 14 for $1.7 million. It plans to sell the historic building at public auction after moving it slightly north onto the parking lot, away from the retaining walls expected to be built for the I-94 modernization project.

The department hasn't yet determined a cost or timeline for the move, spokesman Rob Morosi said.

The building was listed for sale for $1.5 million in June this year, Curbed Detroit reported.

United Sound, Detroit's first major independent recording studio, has been jeopardized by impending I-94 highway widening over the years. Detroit City Council designated it a historic district in 2015, but from 2005 until around then, demolition was a major possibility.

Noticed today that Shapero Hall is entirely gone. There's just some brick walling and piles of debris left on the site. I can't wait for Lafayette West to begin construction.

Detroit works to kick-start stalled development projects

Quote:
The city is now undertaking a comprehensive review of delayed development projects awarded through the request for proposals process or using publicly owned property to try to get shovels in the ground on them if construction has not already started in the next 3-6 months.

"I'm trying to make sure that people are working in good faith and that they are having progress," said Arthur Jemison, the city's chief of services and infrastructure. "If they are working in good faith and making progress, we are trying to figure out how to help them get over the finish line."


PwC adding 125 jobs in Detroit for cybersecurity team

Quote:
PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP is adding 125 information-technology workers over three years to its downtown Detroit office for a new internal cybersecurity team the global accounting firm began building last year.

PwC chose Detroit for a new Network Information Security office and Security Operations Center because of the region's lower cost of living, access to IT talent and its geographic location in the Eastern Time Zone, said Ray Telang, managing partner of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP's Michigan operations.
