Ballet Real Estate, the people who completed the small brick building in Corktown, have another project just around the corner.

Quote:
We are in the design phase for a new building on Trumbull. This building will be the last piece of the puzzle for creating an engaging neighborhood experience at the northwest corner of Bagley and Trumbull. Infill projects are challenging but wow do they make a positive impact on the ballet of the city sidewalk. Thanks Jane Jacobs for sharing your vision and setting the path for so many of us who love urban life




Edit - I'm not sure why the photos aren't showing up

The city recently submitted an Airport Layout Plan (ALP) to the FAA and the Michigan Department of Transportation, which serves both as a guide for DET’s future and a predicate for federal financial assistance to make the plan into a reality.

The Detroit News reported on the when the plan was first announced last summer that;
Quote:
The report also raises the prospect of tunneling under McNichols Road to extend the center line of the airport’s main 5,090-foot-long runway, which “does not meet current FAA design standards.”

The move would allow 405 feet of the existing runway to become usable, and for the reopening of McNichols to reconnect with the adjacent community.
There is now a feasibility study being done by the city to decide whether to move forward on the tunnel and runway extension. While not the biggest piece news from this project it’s small step to what many have been calling on the powers that be to do for decades now.

Bringing the DET up to FAA standards adding in new modern facilities and facilitating new development will go a long way towards reviving Coleman A Young Internationals purpose as a key economic engine.

Commercial passenger service a long held goal of advocates is still a long way off that would require a significant increase in the main runway size however justifying the costs and disruptions that would be required would become much more realistic with upgraded and economically viable facility. In the mean time the city can certainly benefit from the increasing access to the downtown area for the business community and other contingents interested in charter flights.

Detroit finalizing FAA plan that could garner big federal dollars for city airport

ANNALISE FRANK
Crain’s Detroit
April 11, 2021



Of the $150 million in work proposed over 20 years, the city expects the FAA would pay for around 35 percent, the Michigan Department of Transportation would contribute 3 percent, the city would pay nearly 6 percent and the other nearly 60 percent would come from private sources.

The first multimillion dollar project the city is targeting is a long-talked-about acquisition of mostly vacant residential land just west of the airport. The 72 acres is bounded by McNichols Road, Lyford Avenue, Gilbo Avenue and French Road. The city is looking to scoop up the parcels, then clear and prepare them this year and next at a total cost of $10.6 million, per the capital plan. They're needed to create an obstacle-free zone for safety reasons, per the FAA, and the site is also targeted for new airport infrastructure, as Crain's and others previously reported.

....

Airport leadership is in talks with Detroit public schools about using the main terminal building — which used to house commercial services but is no longer suited for them, per Watt — for a new Davis Aerospace High School. There's also been interest in potentially building a new school.

The Ross Effect

The article is mainly about Stephen Ross but it has a little update concerning the Detroit Innovation Center.

Quote:
As the pair move to ground-up development, the first phase of the U-M/Detroit Center for Innovation (DCI) will feature a 190,000-square-foot glass-fronted research and graduate education building designed by renowned architectural firm Kohn Pedersen Fox. The space will be designated for U-M students in automotive mobility, artificial intelligence, sustainability, cybersecurity, fintech, and other technology-related fields. Groundbreaking is expected to take place this year and the project should be completed by 2023.

The educational campus at I-375 and Gratiot will be complemented by mid-rise residential buildings for U-M graduate students, a business incubator and accelerator space, and a hotel in the former Detroit Police Headquarters just west of the site.

“Detroit’s a great city and has always been one of the leading cities in this country,” Ross says. “It’s gotten to a place where it’s really in a position to grow, and it needs that next step to create more jobs. What the DCI project will do is attract people to Detroit — students who will go to school there — and, just as importantly, it will attract businesses to recruit that talent. The school, capitalizing on the University of Michigan’s outstanding reputation in business, engineering, computer science, and so many other areas, will cultivate talent and train students for the jobs of the future.”

Scott DeRue, the Edward J. Frey Dean at the U-M Ross School of Business, says the university’s commitment to the DCI and to the city of Detroit is unwavering.

^ Great news about the city airport plan.

Here's just a few more shots of that incredible Woodward Plan mural that was installed in the new Warner Norcross + Judd office building (constructed in partnership with HED, Ciot | Stone & Tile, and Boston Tile & Terrazzo Company). Say what you will about Olympia, but credit to the whole team that made this a one a reality - it really is quite neat & unique -

Some recent stuff from Urbanize:

Revamped apartment building now leasing in Midtown

Quote:
The Charlotte, a 1915 building in Midtown, has new life after an extensive renovation. 40 studio and one-bedroom apartments are new renting from $1,025 to $1,350 a month.

Previous owners had started a renovation but sold the building when they couldn't finish. The new owners found the right contractor who was able to finish and keep many of the features intact. When purchased, the Cass Corridor building was vacant and had no running water, heat, or electricity in the units, according to Marc Couillais of Modern City.

The apartments have historic features with some modern updates. Each unit has exposed brick. Flooring is concrete on the first floor, and wood on the upper levels. The one-bedroom apartments facing the city have 8-foot wide barn doors with glass for natural light. The studios have bed nooks so the bed isn't in the middle of the living space. Some apartments have the original clawfoot tubs and terrazzo flooring in the bathrooms, while others have a tiled stand-up shower.






Dreamtroit development to bring affordable housing to NW Goldberg

Quote:
An old factory adjacent to Recycle Here and the Lincoln Street Art Park will soon transform into an 81-unit mixed-use development called Dreamtroit. The $20 million project, led by Matt Naimi and Oren Goldenberg, has started construction and could be completed by early 2022.

“We believe it is the people and the culture that push our city into the future,” said Naimi, founder of Recycle Here. “For the past 12 years, we have been bringing people together through public programming, public space, environmentalism and art. We are ensuring that the working class, artists and innovators will continue to have a home and a platform to build the next generation of Detroit's cultural and technological revolution, while offering affordable housing to those who make Detroit such a unique and creative place.”

The development at 1331 Holden Street will have 38,000 square feet of retail and commercial space, including a market and restaurant, with the intention of creating spaces for artists and creatives to gather. 58 of the 81 units will be considered affordable housing, with 17 reserved for households at or below 50 percent area median income (AMI), 41 units at 80 percent AMI, and the rest at 120 percent AMI.








Proposals sought for multi-phase development in Woodbridge

Quote:
A multi-phase development in Woodbridge will bring a variety of housing options to the centralized historic neighborhood. Cinnaire and Woodbridge Neighborhood Development have undergone a community engagement process for the new development, and are now releasing a Request for Proposals to develop the first phase.

The development will be built at Rosa Parks Boulevard and West Canfield, over nine acres of vacant land and the old Hancock Middle School buiding. The new housing should include a variety of options for residents, including different income levels and ownership options. Expect townhouses, mixed-use residential and retail, parking structures, and multi-family properties.

“Woodbridge is a historic neighborhood rich in cultural and economic diversity,” said Liliana Gonzalez, Development Design Specialist, Cinnaire Solutions. “Our vision is to preserve the diversity the neighborhood has long celebrated while bringing new lasting projects to increase investment in the community and create opportunities to support aspiring developers. Building local developer capacity will ensure the varied needs of this community continue to be met.”


Newly renovated 40 Hague ready for residents in the North End

Quote:
Just off of Woodward, a few blocks down from Boston-Edison, a historic Albert Kahn building has been transformed and activated. 40 Hague, built as a Packard Automobile Showroom, now has 38 apartments that are ready to lease.

RainCheck Development bought the building and adjacent lots in 2018. The two-story, 37,000-square-foot building is now comprised of studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom apartments leasing for $2 per square foot ($895 up to $1,795). Capital Impact Partners worked with RainCheck on funding, so eight units have been reserved for residents making 60% of the area median income.

To create larger windows and light for the interior apartments, and to add more outdoor space, the building now has a courtyard with direct access for tenants. It will include bistro tables, bamboo, and Juliet balconies for upper apartments. Large windows bring light into every unit, and raw details adorn exterior walls. Some apartments even have remnants of old car ramps.

^ Thanks for those updates. I've noticed a recent lull in updates on this thread, and hopefully it's only temporary, for whatever reason(s). Personally, I can't keep up with the many Detroit updates, as I like to focus mostly on the West side & Northern Michigan, but I still like to know what's going on in Detroit, and I appreciate it when others post updates on here. It's too hard to balance keeping up with all of the different forums & sites, and even if SSP isn't the most popular Detroit discussion thread out there these days, it's still my favorite -

Here are some recent photos of Building A5, in City Modern -

Thanks for the update and find deja vue especially that first pic I had been looking for an aerial update of city modern.

I’m diggin the revamped Warren / Lincoln Plant in NW Goldberg there’s been a uptick in activity in the area in general I noticed recently when I was scoping out the Motown Museum expansion. Cool area good vibes good location for future development which would boater the surrounding historic neighborhoods.

Speaking of NW Goldberg, does anyone know what’s going on with Holden St under the railroad tracks (right by Dreamtroit project)? Seems to have been blocked off for quite a while now.

I was wondering the same thing I had just assumed it was part of repair work and or there were structural issues. However there is a conceptual plan to make Holden much more pedestrian friendly with bike lanes going under the bridge.

I haven’t found anything concrete that the closure is due to project is moving forward though.

Hi guys! There was a competition for young architects, organised by Manni Group and Sterling Group, for the development of the former Joe Lewis Site.
see: http://www.youngarchitectscompetitio...front-district. I had never heard of that before. Does anybody know more about it? What are the plans? Is there a timeline etc. Thanks for your help.

The Sterling Group has development rights for the Joe Louis Arena site. There are no plans and no timelines have been made public. Sterling Group CEO Elie Torgow was a juror of the alluded design competition.

Sterling Group was founded by the family who own TCF Bank. They are developing a new HQ on Woodward and also bought naming rights to Cobo aka TCF Center. Ultimately the city wants a larger hotel to support TCF Center and possible TCF expansion. Housing and other uses are envisioned in addition to a crapload of parking.

Another under the radar option was the Detroit Zoo wants a large aquarium attraction downtown and this site could possibly support some cultural institution to support the hospitality and retail/restaurant functions that drive foot traffic.
