The Detroit Free Press Building has a new owner. Some are speculating it is Dan Gilbert.

Hopefully it gets revitalized soon, it's an icon!

I do think that the sense of loss of one's architecture from war is different than the sense of loss of architecture from urban renewal but perhaps someone from Germany can better speak to that issue than I. As to the Communists I was thinking about Berlin where the Berlin Palace, the Garrison Church and the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial were all torn down by the Communists primarily for idealogical reasons.

The Free Press Building is indeed owned by Gilbert and was announced today that it will be renovated over the next 2 years as a mixed use of retail/office and residential.

Also it was announced that the 1st building in the Packard assembly plant will begin its renovation in the 2nd quarter.
This is what it looks like now This is the phase one with the idea of renovating as much as possible some time in the future
Here are some conceptual renderings of what is possible

Great to see Detroit rejuvenated with revitalised classical buildings and new public transport.
Other cities in despair should follow its lead.

Tallest building in Detroit planned for Hudson site


In an era of a downtown Detroit renaissance, plans for the tallest building in the city were unveiled Wednesday.

The building is part of an estimated $775 million development proposed by an entity linked to billionaire Dan Gilbert. The project for the empty Woodward Avenue block where the J.L. Hudson department store once stood is one of the most expensive and ambitious plans introduced in a decade that has seen many blockbuster deals.

The shimmering, futuristic 734-foot tower aims to be a centerpiece for the city and state, officials for Gilbertís Bedrock Detroit said as they rolled out the proposed project to the board of the Downtown Development Authority. Thatís one of the city agencies that would need to approve the deal.

The tower would have 250 residential units and 700-plus underground parking spaces. A connected nine-story base structure would house retail, office, technology and arts and culture space. The development looks like nothing in Detroit now, with a glass and steel exterior that sweeps upward.

Geil stuff. Hard raging boom boner!

Though it still seems like a pipe dream for now, huh?

The interiors are mind blowing! If built, this makes losing Hudson's much less painful and totally worth the loss.

They are waiting for a bill to be passed that would give them downtown development tax credits called the Michigan Thrive Initiative. Without it, they said the project would have to be far smaller. Hopefully the project will happen at full scale as it is next to the M-1 Woodward Avenue Streetcar and they need evidence that the streetcar line and many extensions will drive development in Detroit. If the MTI is passed by the state, it could lead to a lot more redevelopment projects on Brownfield sites across the many cities in Michigan.

The State Senate passed the bill on Wednesday and it now moves on to the House before the Governor's desk for a signature.

Checking in on Bedrock’s 28 Grand in Capitol Park

This week, we’re checking in on a few construction projects currently underway around the city. One of the next to be completed will be 28 Grand, the 13-story development of micro-apartments rising in Capitol Park. Led by Dan Gilbert’s Bedrock, the building will have 218 furnished apartments averaging about 260 square feet each.

Representatives from Bedrock tell Curbed that window installation is complete and interior work on the units is underway. Leasing should begin in June.

Arena district construction update: Little Caesars HQ, arena seats, and more

While the Little Caesars Arena itself is the biggest construction project in the city right now, we’ve noticed the Little Caesars World Headquarters, just down Woodward at Columbia, rising rapidly these past few months.

To recap, this building will be a nine story, 234,000-square-foot office building with 14-foot glass “slices” on the facade facing Woodward. It will be open in 2018.
