These buildings are getting ready for their next act
Detroit is seeing a development and construction boom that it hasn’t seen in decades. This map discusses 12 of the most anticipated renovations happening in the city. From buildings that were vacant for decades (the Metropolitan Building, Michigan Central Station), to some that are currently vacant and hold a prominent location (like the Old Wayne County Building), in the coming years we’ll see these buildings filled with residential, hotels, office space, and more.
We last updated this map in November. Since then, the Siren Hotel has quietly opened in the old Wurlitzer Building. We’re getting close to the opening of the first on our list—the David Stott Building.
We didn’t include the biggest renovation in the city—the massive Packard Plant redevelopment—which is included on our transformative development projects in the city. The Packard Plant renovation and redevelopment could take up to ten years. What compares on this list? The Herman Kiefer Complex redevelopment in Virginia Park.
