That South-of-Mack development on the rest of the block is going to be huge. It makes me wondering how tall the West Elm is going to be given the small site? It looks like the site is very roughly similar in size to the Shinola Hotel (in face probably narrower) with the same number of rooms, so I'm guessing at least 10 floors.

Developer, nonprofit team to renovate southwest Detroit apartment complex

By ANNALISE FRANK
Crain's Detroit Business
April 19, 2018

-$9.7 million project could start as soon as fall
-SER Metro-Detroit aims to bridge gap between education and career for construction work
-Detroit-based Shelborne Development Corp. partners with SER



Pending funding approvals, the $9.7 million, 49-unit Broderick Manor project could start as soon as this fall. It "could be a game-changer" for SER's workforce development efforts, said Ann Leen, assistance vice president of youth services.

....

The four-story apartment building at 1516 Vinewood St., built in the 1920s, was majority occupied until a series of fires in 2011 severely damaged its interior and roof, according to a March narrative on the project provided by Shelborne. The 45,000-square-foot building has since been gutted by looters and will require an extensive rehab, according to Shelborne.

A Shelborne entity, KSM Holdings LLC, purchased the property from Jet Dhaliwal in 2014 for approximately $125,000, according to the deed, and Shelborne founder and President Kathy Makino.

The finished product will have 49 units of 450-950 square feet — one- and two-bedroom apartments and studios, said Jill Ferrari, Shelborne CEO and partner. Around 45 percent will be "affordable" and the rest market-rate, but rental prices haven't yet been determined.

SammyS over at DetroitYes has given an update on City Modern in Brush Park. Phase 1 is sold out, Phase 2 only has four units left, and the units in Phase 3 is seeing double-digit price increases from the first phase.



These three phases include townhomes (5 buildings), and the carriage homes, and the 5 historic home renovations. That leaves the duplettes (proposed) and the six flats buildings (under construction).

The townhomes front the streets and the carriage homes front the alleys; both are four-sale units. The duplettes, historic homes, and flats are rental units.

^ Broderick Manor / 1516 Vinewood St. could once again be a gem, despite the extensive damage by arson and looting. But it will take a lot of TLC to get it up to snuff. You can see it in its pre-fire / looting form in 2009 on street view.

Dequindre Cut Freight Yard to open May 19 with party, BYOB camping

By KURT NAGL
Crain's Detroit Business
April 20, 2018

-Freight yard to include local retailers, live entertainment, food and drink vendors
-Tour and information session set for Tuesday
-Retail vendor applications open



The freight yard — nine repurposed shipping containers stacked along the greenway just north of the Division Street Bridge — has been in the works for a few years. A preview took place last fall.

"It's going to be good to finally have some significant activation there," said Dina Bankole, market manager with the Build Institute, a Detroit-based entrepreneurship incubator that is managing the project in partnership with the Detroit Riverfront Conservancy.



Build Institute will handle the retail side of programming, which includes eight pavilion spots available for entrepreneurs and small business owners and overflow space in Eastern Market during busy days. Vendor hours are 11 a.m.-3 p.m Saturdays and noon-4 p.m. Sundays.

Downtown Holiday Inn Express to get renovation, new brand — with a twist

By KIRK PINHO
Crain's Detroit Business
April 22, 2018

-Downtown Detroit hotel expected to undergo transformation to Hotel Indigo
-Holiday Inn Express & Suites Downtown Detroit is the latest investment for program
-Project Destined offers lessons in life and business

A downtown Detroit hotel in a key location has changed hands and is expected to undergo a transformation into a boutique hotel in the next 12-18 months.

The Holiday Inn Express & Suites Downtown Detroit is also the latest investment for Project Destined, an effort that provides high school students in Detroit — along with a handful of other cities in separate but similar efforts — with real-world real estate and business experience by immersing them in the industry, from its beginning phases like deal sourcing and property acquisition all the way through completion of a renovation or redevelopment project.

New York City-based Glenmont Capital Management along with two other out-of-state investors, Project Destined co-founders Cedric Bobo and Fred Greene, bought the 241-room hotel and Washington Boulevard and Michigan Avenue last week for an undisclosed price.

Medical, cosmetic spa to fill last retail space in the Albert

By ANNALISE FRANK
Crain's Detroit Business
April 20, 2018



A cosmetic office offering Botox, chemical peels and a fat-reduction procedure called CoolSculpting expects to open the first week of May in the Albert building in Detroit's Capitol Park.

BOYD,which offers medical, surgical and cosmetic services, will fill the last open retail space at the apartment complex, Detroit-based Broder & Sachse Real Estate Inc. announced in a news release. Broder & Sachse redeveloped and now manages the building.

BOYD's main office is in Birmingham, and it has a satellite office in Ann Arbor, office manager Jennifer Pokorski said.

....

The 1,700-square-foot office will act more like a "med spa" than doctor's office, Pokorski said. It won't offer plastic surgery.

Lakeshore Global Building in Detroit's New Center to be Developed



Quote:
The Platform has acquired the Lakeshore Global Building in New Center, the company said Wednesday. The eight-story, 240,000-square-foot building sits on the northeast corner of Woodward and Grand Boulevard in a neighborhood that’s seen steady investment over the last few years.

The building is currently 60 percent occupied. Dietrich Knoer, president and CEO of The Platform, and his team plan to “reposition” the building for full occupancy.
I've never heard this building being referred to as the Lakeshore Global Building. Historically it was the Ford Sales Building and later the Boulevard Building. The facade got modernized sometime mid century, but according to posters on DetroitYes the interior lobby is untouched. I'd love to see them redo the facade, either how it originally looked or something more modern. The parking lot around the building is also up for potential future construction.


Shuttered for 40 years, Willis Show Bar will reopen Friday in Cass Corridor



Quote:
The Willis' new owners – a group of Los Angeles-based hospitality veterans in partnership with the Detroit Optimist Society – are aiming to hark back to the pre-seedy era of the show bar's life, where guests will be encouraged to dress up to come watch live jazz and blues acts perform on the small stage behind the bar.

The State of Michigan sold the building to Lakeshore, an engineering firm, back in 2005. Prior to that, at least back to the 60's, this was home to some state offices before the redo of Cadillac Place down the Boulevard. I always remember about Lakeshore because it came up during Kilpatrick's ouster that he had crooked dealings with the company. He gave them more business than they knew what to do with, and he got to rent office space for cheap in the building and they had all kinds of political fundraisers for him.


Historic Detroit

What a shame what they did to this one.

I'm pretty sure the current facade is a totally new construction (i.e. not overhanging the old facade). It almost certainly wouldn't be as energy efficient, but I think the only way you "fix" the aesthetic problems of the current facade is to take it off and hang a glass curtain wall in its place. Turn it into a glass box and call it a day, really.

Detroit News business columnist Daniel Howes is seeing further signs of Ford's interest in Michigan Central Station:

Evidence builds on Blue Oval’s Corktown vision

By Daniel Howes | The Detroit News

April 26, 2018

Ford Motor Co.’s potentially transformative vision for a corner of Corktown, Detroit’s oldest neighborhood, may be taking a step forward.

Even as the Dearborn automaker remains deep in talks to acquire the historic Michigan Central Depot from the Moroun family’s Central Transport International Inc., Ford is in “discussions” to buy an old brass factory at 2051 Rosa Parks, says a source familiar with the situation.

That’s adjacent to what Ford calls “The Factory,” the new Corktown headquarters at Michigan and Rosa Parks soon to house its autonomous and electric-car groups under what it calls Team Edison. Expanding Ford’s presence there developing next-generation autonomous and mobility technology would make an emphatic statement about Detroit’s revival — and the Blue Oval’s role in it.

The upshot: Ford is moving to assemble parcels that could become part of an urban business campus on the western edge of downtown. The automaker’s fully realized vision, pushed ardently by Executive Chairman Bill Ford Jr., would be anchored by a renovated train station, for way too long a symbol of Detroit’s urban and industrial decline.
Quote:
Mike Koenigbauer of Friedman Real Estate, the broker representing the seller, this week told The Detroit News the property at 2051 Rosa Parks, built in 1921, has been under contract for several months and that a potential closing of the sale appeared near. He did not offer a timeline. The building owner, Angel Gambino, was contacted several times this week but said she was unavailable to speak about the property.

A marketing brochure for the property — called “The Alchemy” — pegs the asking price at $2.5 million for two parcels. The larger, 2.75-acre site sits on the west side of Rosa Parks and features an 87,000-square-foot building that could be delivered vacant or redeveloped. The second parcel is a parking lot on the east side of the street totaling a little more than an acre.

And this week, the 28,000-square-foot Ponyride Building at 1401 Vermont in Corktown was listed for sale. Asking price: $3.5 million for the “immaculately maintained” two-story building with “unlimited potential ... in the ever popular and bustling Corktown neighborhood,” the listing says. City property records show the building’s current owner paid $100,000 for the building in 2011.

Novi Homebuilder Plans Multifamily Park Avenue Building Redevelopment



75-100 apartments planned and 4000-5000 square feet of retail space on the first floor.

About time. With this and the City Club apartments on the Statler site and hopefully the Ilitch high rise on Witherell, Adams and Madison, all thats left of the unbuilt property surrounding Grand Circus Park are the Tuller Hotel site and the Fine Arts Building.

Ford begins forging a Corktown campus

By KIRK PINHO
Crain's Detroit Business
April 28, 2018



-Automaker linked to nearly 50 Corktown properties
-Announcement on train station targeted for next month
-Automaker also re-evaluating Dearborn campus transformation plan

With the abandoned Michigan Central Station as the campus' anchor, Ford is also nearing deals to buy properties ranging from small retail buildings and slivers of land to large warehouses, according to a half-dozen sources who have been briefed on the discussions with property owners.

The Dearborn-based automotive giant, which employs 48,000 in Michigan, is expected to reveal its intention to buy and redevelop the dilapidated Michigan Central Station in Corktown next month, according to four other sources familiar with the campus discussions.

An announcement of what could be the most transformational Detroit development plan in more than a decade may come May 10, one of the sources said. The other sources were unable to verify that date, which is also when Ford's annual shareholder meeting is slated to begin at 8:30 a.m., but did say that next month is the target.

The project is not set in stone. The Moroun family, which has owned the train station for decades and some of the other properties folded into the plan, are known as tough negotiators, meaning the discussions could collapse and the depot could remain in the family's hands.

Ford already has revealed its intent to occupy The Factory at Corktown on Michigan Avenue and put 220 autonomous/electric vehicle workers in the 45,000-square-foot building. But close to 50 properties, including the train station and small vacant lots, have been linked to Ford in the five weeks since Crain's first reported the company's discussions with the Moroun family.

LinkedIn to open larger Detroit office in historic Sanders building

By KURT NAGL
Crain's Detroit Business
April 27, 2018

-It's LinkedIn's first new U.S. office in 10 years
-Renovations underway; planned opening within the year
-Company has been operating temporarily out of downtown WeWork space



LinkedIn is laying down permanent roots in Detroit and moving its team of 40 from a temporary space into the historic Sanders building for its first new U.S. office in 10 years.

The Silicon Valley-based social media company has been operating in the downtown WeWork space since October and has been looking for a larger space in the city all the while. It decided on the 74,500-square-foot building at at 1523 Woodward Ave., owned by Bedrock LLC.

Renovations are underway and the company plans to open its new office within the next year, according to a post on its website.

UBS Group AG's U.S. and Canadian wealth management business, New Jersey-based UBS Wealth Management Americas, plans to lease 13,000 square feet on the connected sixth floors of neighboring buildings at 1515 Woodward Ave. and 1529 Woodward Ave.The two buildings built around 1900 are owned by Detroit-based Bedrock LLC and are undergoing renovations, said John Bush, 60, Michigan market head for UBS Wealth Management Americas.

The word I've heard from Ford employee's is that they couldn't see how the company could afford to build a new huge suburban tech center and at the same time come into Corktown in a big way while at the same time "overall" sales are stagnant. Seems we now have some answers. Right now at the same time the Ranger mid-sized pickup is being brought back the focus, fiesta & taurus are to be phased out in the US market by 2019 where car sales are down sharply and truck sales are up sharply.

Can't say I feel comfortable about the move but if the models are in production in other markets it wouldn't be hard to reintroduce in the event of an oil shock. The whole plan has a vaguely familiar ring to it though like what Ford tried and failed to do in the late 90's however the seeming difference being the fusion which is the star of Ford's sedan fleet doesn't appear to be going anywhere, where as the company had already ruined the taurus by the late 90's.

*Btw I'm really hyped to see plans for the Park Ave Building.

The Downtown Synagogue is getting a new mural

By Robin Runyan
Curbed Detroit
Apr 27, 2018



It’s mural season in Detroit. The triangular and colorful Isaac Agree Downtown Synagogue will see a new mural on its bare west-facing side. Artist Bunnie Reiss is starting the jewel-toned mural today.

Executive Director Arlene Frank tells Curbed that along with the building improvements that came about last fall, this adds another exciting building project to the Downtown Synagogue. “Creativity is the hallmark of this project, as, beginning today, a mural is being painted on the back wall of our historic building, adding to the many striking murals that now grace Detroit,” says Frank. “We have engaged Bunnie Reiss, a nationally renowned mural artist, who travels extensively creating vibrant murals that connect with people and bring art into communities.”

Does anyone know the price range for phase one? Nothing (that I saw) was listed on city modern's website.

From the DetroitYes thread when the units started going on sale they were $230,000. Phase 1 is sold out, and phase 2 and 3 don't have many units left. The remaining units seem to be going for between $750,000 and $900,000, but it's easy to imagine that going higher.

I thought I'd let you guys know that Koops65 has added a drawing of One Monroe Avenue to the diagrams section. Still waiting on someone to do a Hudson's site drawing, though.

I would think there'd be a lot of interest within the illustrators' realm to draw it up. Maybe they are waiting to find out what the crown / observation deck will actually look like
