Yeah, or something new, but inspired by Art Deco, just to fill all those voids in the city centre.

The need to preserve these older homes and towers will only grow with each decade, because not only are they living monuments to the design and lifestyle themes of the past but their level of detail and individuality will likely become more a thing of the past. Most modern skyscrapers are decidedly more machine-like in their appearance and construction technique, to the point where we're seeing waves of designs copied in different cities. (Skyhouse condos, for example.) Plus we'll continue to see fewer buildings featuring the level of masonry as shown in past styles like Art Deco, meaning these golden age structures face becoming more and more the rarity. Best to hold on to what we have while we've the chance, and Detroit will be a great laboratory in that regard.

Another great development.

Southeast corner of Grand and Woodward. Ralph C Wilson Foundation a restaurant and 10 apartments are locating there.

I hope they fix the details at the top along the Grand Blvd side.

Motown Museum plans $50 million expansion

Quote:
By Dustin Walsh / Crain's Detroit Business

Detroit's famed Motown Museum plans to undergo a $50 million expansion.

The project, announced Monday morning, would add 40,000 square feet to the existing museum, which includes the Motown studio and Hitsville USA house on West Grand Boulevard. The expansion would house interactive exhibits, a theater, a cafe and expanded retail, said Robin Terry, chair and CEO of the museum.

Renderings released by the museum show a new facility behind the existing museum, with an entrance next to the existing studio.

The organization plans to start a donor-led fundraising effort in the near future to raise the money, Terry said.

"We've had enormous support (behind closed doors) for this concept," she said. "We feel optimistic about how the funding is going to play out."

The timing of the expansion is unknown at this time and will depend on funding, but the organization wants it to occur quickly, Terry said.


"With all of the development going on throughout the city, the QLine landing on our front door ... it has just created the perfect environment to leverage this brand that Detroit holds so dear."

Phil Freelon, managing director of Chicago-based architecture firm Perkins + Will, is serving as the lead architect on the project. Detroit-based L.S. Brinker Co. will serve as construction manager and Washington D.C.-based museum design firm Gallagher & Associates is developing the visitor experiences and exhibition design.

Motown Records founder Berry Gordy launched his cultural and commercial music empire in 1959 at the Detroit site. Scores of stars and hits were created there before it moved to California in 1972.

"The Motown Museum brings thousands of visitors to Detroit each year to see the historic place where this internationally celebrated story was born," Larry Alexander, president and CEO of the Detroit Metro Convention & Visitors Bureau, said in a news release. "These visitors stay in our great hotels, eat at our diverse selection of restaurants and experience the other incredible attractions that Detroit and Southeast Michigan offers."


You can see two more illustrations of the planned museum when you follow this link. Didn't know how to copy them in here.

This a couple of weeks old but still exciting. This is from an article in Crain's
Quote:
Dan Gilbert's team has two months to submit its development and financing plans to the Detroit Downtown Development Authority for its plan to build a new high-rise building on the former J.L. Hudson's department store site.

It's possible that building, which would sit on the vacant 2-acre site on Woodward, could come in at 60 stories, sources are telling me.
This could possibly be taller than the Ren-Cen to become the tallest in the city. We will know sometime in the next 2 to 4 months.

Wow. A new tallest skyscraper for Detroit possibly incoming, who would've expected that just one year ago!

Certainly it's all thanks and due to this glorious SSC thread right here!

And then hopefully people will look at what happened along Cobb Avenue and finally decide that wholesale demolition like that of the irreplacable historic context should NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN!!!!

Actually they should think about several reconstructions in Detroit, maybe whole ensembles and blocks/neighbourhoods even. It's terryfying to see the loss of historical continuity in parts of the city, esp. around Downtown.

You may want to start here to get an idea of the current skyline. http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...etroit&page=25
Also here is an excellent article about what is envisioned that was posted in the Detroit thread in the Midwest section of N America http://www.architectmagazine.com/des...coxs-detroit_o
