636675324277634946-RTA-millage.JPG?width

 

Southeast Michigan transportation might be getting a little bit easier. 

A proposed nonstop bus service from Detroit to Ann Arbor would mean riders could travel between the two cities in as little as one hour.  The Regional Transit Authority of Southeast Michigan (RTA) in partnership with the Ann Arbor Area Transportation Authority (TheRide) is proposing the pilot express bus service.  The service will be operated by Michigan Flyer and run from Grand Circus Park in Detroit to Fourth Avenue at William Street in Ann Arbor. 

The proposed service will run hourly for 16 hours a day during the week — from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. They are also proposing limited service on Saturday and Sunday. Customers will be able to make advance reservations or walk on at bus stops. 

 

Proposed one-way fares for the service are: 

  • $12 base fare
  • $10 advanced booking discount 
  • $6 senior/disability fare

Elmwood Park Plaza tower to be renamed, renovated in $25 million effort

 

A nearly 50-year-old apartment tower in Detroit is getting a $25 million renovation.

Construction on City Club Apartments Lafayette Park, formerly Elmwood Park Plaza at 750 Chene St. between Larned and Lafayette streets, is expected to begin this month with residents moving into renovated units starting in the spring.

The plans were formally announced during an event Thursday morning on the first floor of the building, which opened in 1974.

Among the renovations are an 18th-floor lounge, greenery added to the building's facade, new landscaping, extensively renovated and redesigned apartment interiors, a fitness center, heated pool and hot tub, a beach volleyball court and a outdoor grill.

Streetscape work on McNichols in Detroit's Fitzgerald neighborhood to start in May

 

McNichols%20streetscape%20rendering_i.jp

 

Construction is expected to start in May on $5 million-$6 million in streetscape improvements on McNichols Road in the Fitzgerald neighborhood, pending City Council approval.

The stretch in northwest Detroit from Livernois Avenue west to Greenlawn Avenue is among five such projects set for construction work this year, according to a news release. The streetscape changes come out of a commercial corridor beautification initiative announced by Mayor Mike Duggan in October 2017. The city sold $125 million in bonds to make streets more walkable and attractive to business in 23 areas, with $80 million of that for road infrastucture.

The McNichols stretch will get new sidewalks and concrete, a parking lot to offset loss of street parking due to a new protected bike lane, transit stop improvements, MoGo shared bicycle stations and other touches such as benches, according to the release and spokesman Dan Austin.

Ruth Ellis Center building 43 units of supportive housing for LGBTQ young adults

 

1801_Ruth-Ellis-aerial-view-2.jpg

 

In 18 months, what's now an empty field on Clairmount, just west of Woodward, will be a new home for dozens of LGBTQ young adults now experiencing homelessness.

The 43-unit mixed-use permanent housing development is a collaboration between Highland Park’s Ruth Ellis Center and Full Circle Communities, a non-profit developer out of Chicago and represents a movement toward offering a vulnerable community housing before tackling other issues that can lead to homelessness.

Thirty-four of the units will be offered supported by vouchers that will cover most, if not all, of their expense. Eight units will be offered at low-cost. The final unit will be home to a live-in peer support specialist.

In suburban Detroit...

 

Plans underway to replace mobile home park on Cass Lake with luxury apartments

 

ResidencesAtCassLakeRendering-main_i.jpg

 

A post-World War II mobile home park in Keego Harbor may be replaced with a luxury apartment complex.

Within about two years, Ara Darakjian and his Birmingham-based Tir Equities LLC hopes to begin construction on the 5.33-acre site on Orchard Lake Road overlooking Cass Lake in the tiny Oakland County community nestled between Sylvan Lake and Orchard Lake Village.

In the end, the 93 mobile home sites, of which only about 65 are currently occupied, are to be turned into the Residences at Cass Lake project with about 250 high-end apartments and 50,000 square feet of retail if Darakjian can get the needed approvals and financing. Darakjian wouldn't disclose the development cost.

It would be unique in the area not just in its sheer scale of up to 72 feet but also in its raw ambition and motive — converting needed housing for low-income residents into luxury apartments for renters paying perhaps three times as much or more per month.

153-room AC Hotel to open in 2021 next to Bonstelle Theatre

 

ec0e2cb4-5b62-4ab0-82eb-7d54f9ad59b6-ext

 

An AC Hotel will open in late 2021 next to the Bonstelle Theatre, a developer announced Tuesday morning.

Detroit's Roxbury Group says it has signed an agreement with Marriott International to develop the project, which will have 153 rooms over 10 stories. Construction on the new building in the 3400 block of Woodward is expected to begin this summer.

The AC Hotel will take the place of the West Elm hotel that was originally supposed to have been built on the site, but was canceled last year.

The project, estimated to cost $46 million, will restore the Bonstelle Theatre to its original 1903 Albert Kahn-designed exterior and 1925 interior redesign, carried out under its then-new owner, Jessie Bonstelle. The theater will be attached to the hotel with a glass atrium. 

The theater will be used as a live performance and community event space. Roxbury says it "recently entered into a long-term master lease" of the Bonstelle property with Wayne State University.

Ilitch organization shows progress at Detroit's old Hotel Eddystone redevelopment

 

f6c4262c-7c86-4dd0-ba81-37163ffda51a-022

 

The Ilitch organization showed off its progress Monday on the once-stalled redevelopment of the old Hotel Eddystone next to Little Caesars Arena into new apartments, pledging to complete the project by fall 2021.

“We’re well ahead of schedule and we’ll finish well on time," Keith Bradford, Olympia Development's senior vice president of development, told a group of reporters and photographers during a tour of the building's top floor and ground floor.

The Ilitch organization has been working to overcome past criticism about the slow pace of development in the commercial, entertainment and residential district surrounding the new arena.

Olympia Development missed its original fall 2018 deadline to rehab and reopen the 13-story Eddystone, 110 Sproat St., just north of the arena. It relaunched the $35 million project last June, this time with a new timeline and milestones that were negotiated with the city and Downtown Development Authority.

The Eddystone is to reopen with 92 to 96 apartments, roughly 50% of them studio units and the others one-bedroom and two-bedroom units.
