Since you just posted a site photo I doubt too much could change within a week if they're just doing ground work and prep still.
anything can change from day to day. All updates are greatly appreciated! It's up to you, of course.

Pinnacle of a new Detroit -- and what a grand one it is. A city taking itself back piece by piece it would seem.

So glad Detroit is trying to do some urban-regeneration in its city-center. This tower will serve as a new icon and a tourist attraction. Will it include an observation deck?

From my understanding of all the proposed project programming images, yes, a deck is planned. Rumored I thought to be free but even if it's a charge, if the structure is 900'+, hopefully that'll mean top floor like 840-850, easily exceeding the top floors of the Ren Cen / Marriot Hotel.

SHoP refreshes design for Hudson's Detroit skyscraper
7 November 2018 | Dan Howarth

Quote:


New York firm SHoP Architects' regeneration plans for a former department store in Downtown Detroit, which include building the city and state's tallest tower, have undergone dramatic revisions.

The studio has refreshed the design of the mixed-use development on the J L Hudson's Department Store site, to include an updated programme and a markedly different look.

As the centrepiece of the project, a stepped skyscraper with terraces up two sides replaces a previous iteration that would have risen like a giant chimney stack.



The tower's projected height has also been increased from 734 to 921 feet (224 to 278 metres), extending its lead over the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center – the city's current tallest building. It will also claim the title of tallest in Michigan.

If this development actually turns out as these renders depict it, this could be one of the greatest projects built anywhere in this country so far this century. A sort of "defibrillation" to restart the heart of one of the greatest American cities. I really hope this project is realized to such a grand extent.

Let's not get carried away. This tower will provide some good construction jobs and tax revenue, but a tower full of luxury condos is not exactly a bellwether of change in Detroit. More of a symptom than a cause.

I really hope that the upcoming economic downturn doesn’t sink this project. Detroit really doesn’t need another Skyscraper cancelled due to a poor economy.

This city has had some really good skyscrapers cancelled, such as the 2nd Book Tower which would of rose 900 feet, the rest of the Fisher Building including the 60+ story main tower, all due to economic downturns. Ally Detroit Center was also supposed to have a twin that was never built.

Just really hope this project doesn’t get snakebit.

There's no way the next recession will be as bad as 2008. And Detroit has built an impressive amount since that one. The trends of urban renewal in the US will probably continue despite recession.

Also, this tower will probably be topped out at the very least before any economic contraction begins.

Experts predict Michigan's economy to do well into 2020, Hudson will be half finished by then.

Also Michigan just had the 2nd best economic growth in the country last quarter.

I'm gonna make the bold prediction that once investors/developers are certain the next recession won't be catastrophic, you're going to start seeing a zillion highrise proposals in downtown Detroit. The northwest quadrant is almost entirely parking lots.

Site looks much cleaner though. Wonder how much they'll get done through the winter.
