I just saw this post for the first time today....Great for a city that so many have given up on....A new high for the skyline and the citizens as well....The design may have changed but the sprite is still positive....Don't be down on something so right for everyone, it's a big plus..

Gilbert's Hudson's site skyscraper may grow to 912 feet in height

The biggest building in the state is going to be even bigger than previously expected.

Billionaire mortgage mogul and real estate maven Dan Gilbert's skyscraper slated for downtown Detroit may grow by more than 100 feet to 912 feet tall, Crain's has learned.

While the final height has not yet been determined, Joe Guziewicz, vice president of construction for Gilbert's Bedrock LLC, confirmed that it will be taller than the 800 feet that was previously announced as the company looks to get "the most flexibility for how we use it and how we program it."

"We may end up at 900," Guziewicz said, adding that the city has been briefed on the plan. "This has been an ongoing struggle for us for the last eight months. We get one shot and we want to be sure we have the right components inside."
Quote:
The maximum height of 912 feet was arrived at because that's the height the elevator cores as they are currently designed can support, Guziewicz said.

saw that earlier. It adds credence to the rumors that they aren't sure what the top will be like yet (it has yet to be clearly rendered for the latest design) Exciting stuff for Detroit!

Any chance you guys think that if the core goes to about 900' then we can have a crown of some sort pushing this to 1,000? Probably not likely but at least it's flirting with the supertall section! Great to see Detroit get something of this size again.

Even at 912', this is the first real skyscraper built in Detroit in over 25 years. It will make a huge impression on the region psychologically.

I can’t be the only one wishing for another 72 feet to get us to Supertall status....

But still as was said, this is substantially bigger than anything we've seen since the RenCen or even Chase Tower. The city is desperately needing something grand and new. This hopefully will fit the bill.

Downtown Detroit getting denser and denser. Is a condo boom in the next decade possible?

Impossible to tell. Detroit has a lot more work to do than just about any other city in the country. But so far they're doing mostly good work. Only time will tell what Detroit looks like in the coming decades.

What an incredible development for Detroit.

Downtown is really becoming a small fortress of revitalization to boost its surrounding areas

If Detroit gets a supertall before Boston and Miami...
LOLOLOLOLOLOL is all I'll have to say.

Either way, great stuff.

Hudson's site tower details revealed in city documents

Quote:
October 09, 2018

Detroit's tallest building — and the state's — is expected to feature a stepping design in the heart of downtown as fresh details of Dan Gilbert's signature downtown development project are revealed in a new site plan obtained by Crain's.

The plan dated Sept. 10, submitted to the city and obtained through the Freedom of Information Act on Tuesday afternoon, includes new scope projections for the J.L. Hudson's department store site development project not previously reported.

For some reason, I haven't realized it is considerably taller than Ren Cen. That's a huge addition to Detroit.
