Northland Mall's possible future: Pricey condos

 

636257981335156662-Hudsons-Exterior.jpeg

 

You’d drive up to an old Macy’s department store, pull right inside and drive up two, three, even four floors to an indoor parking spot — just down the hall from your luxury loft condo.

 

No worries: Shopping is just a stroll away or elevator ride away.

 

Leading to stores and dining would be  quiet hallways, some boasting the collectible mid-century-modern art that once adorned Northland Center — the largest shopping center in the nation when it opened in 1954. Now, Northland's former anchor store, known to generations of Detroiters as J.L. Hudson's, could soon reinvent itself as luxury lofts that look out on landscaped parks, restaurants, stores and acres of new offices.

Cobo looks to expand, raise funds

 

B99345318Z.1_20160121210954_000_GCHOSJTU.1-0.jpg

 

Cobo Center is considering another possible major expansion and shoring up its funding.

 

Hundreds of thousands of visitors are at Cobo for the Detroit auto show this week, but officials are looking years down the road to keep the convention center on a solid financial path.

 

In six years, a tax subsidy for Cobo ends. The regional authority that controls Cobo has to find another source for that money, which currently is $7 million a year. The center has an annual operating budget of about $16 million.

 

One of the ideas being explored is selling the naming rights; historians say the convention center is named after the wrong official — Albert E. Cobo, a ’50s-era Detroit mayor who campaigned against the “Negro invasion” of white neighborhoods, among other things.

Jolly Pumpkin owner plans 'meat-themed' restaurant on Selden in Midtown

 

An owner of Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales is expected to open a restaurant in a vacant Midtown building as part of a $1 million Michigan Strategic Fund loan approved Tuesday in Lansing.

 

Jon Carlson, a co-founder and managing partner of Northern United Brewing Co., which brews for Jolly Pumpkin, plans a "meat-themed Up North-style destination restaurant" as part of a $7.24 million redevelopment by an affiliate of Midtown Detroit Inc. on Selden Street just west of Second Avenue, according to an MSF briefing memo.

Pontiac, Silverdome owner agree to demolition in court settlement

 

The Pontiac Silverdome will be demolished in the next several months under an agreement reached between the city and the stadium's ownership group. If it comes to fruition, it would mark the next major step in finding a new use for the 127.5-acre site that used to host tens of thousands of Detroit Lions fans when the team played there until moving to Ford Field downtown in 2002.

Michigan OK's more than $23M in aid for Gilbert's Brush Park project

 

636262899029437515-Brush-Park.JPG

 

The Michigan Strategic Fund today approved incentive payments worth some $23 million in loans and reimbursements to businessman Dan Gilbert's organization to support construction of his ambitious City Modern residential and retail project in Detroit's Brush Park district.

 

The fund's board approved a loan totaling $7.5 million plus $15.8 million in reimbursements over 20 years to alleviate lead and asbestos abatement in the soil and removal of underground storage tanks, among other tasks.

 

The one-acre site covered by the $7.5 million loan — a portion of the total 8.4-acre City Modern project area — will see construction of approximately 69 residential units and about 7,900 square feet of retail space and two levels of underground parking with 136 spaces.

Big Boy demolition and historic rehabs planned in Detroit's Islandview

 

One of Detroit's most active development teams sees the potential in large-scale projects that will have immediate and obvious impact on the central city.

 

But they also recognize how, in a city the size of Detroit, targeted smaller projects deliver value in a different way: They re-create community.

 

And for The Platform, that is personal. Founders Dietrich Knoer and Peter Cummings are proud of their restoration of the iconic Fisher Building and projects in Midtown and the New Center.

Yeah, I can't imagine any other option for Pontiac Silverdome than demolition.

 

Even my beloved Tiger Stadium likely had to be demolished. As much as I loved it, it's tough to redevelop a stadium into anything else.

 

They're not like warehouses and factories than can be easily turned into lofts or offices. And they're not like office buildings and schools that can be easily turned into apartments or condos.

636265622018500657-Exterior-Detroit-Foundation-Hotel.png

 

The Detroit Foundation Hotel, in the former Detroit Fire Department headquarters across the street from Cobo Center, is set to open in May.

 

The modern design, 100-room hotel is part of a bigger bet by hoteliers to redevelop downtown buildings in recent years to offer more upscale rooms for guests attending the annual auto show, conventions and other events.

 

"It’s an incredible time in Detroit and we’re excited and honored that Foundation Hotel will have the opportunity to play a role in the city’s story,” said Mario Triccoci, co-founder and CEO of Aparium Hotel Group. “In creating this hotel, we are collaborating with local makers, artists and innovators to introduce a true Detroit experience for both locals and visitors."

Developer’s plans take shape at Herman Kiefer site

 

B99510708Z.1_20170402221332_000_GR61E1LEL.1-0.jpg

 

A New York developer’s grand vision for the vacant Herman Kiefer Hospital complex and neighborhood includes a $143 million investment that begins with a small hotel and indoor skate park.

 

Ron Castellano’s plan for a walkable commercial campus on the sprawling site is inching forward as he takes ownership of the property this spring. The developer acquired the complex in a $925,000 deal approved by Detroit’s City Council in fall 2015.

 

Castellano’s Herman Kiefer Development LLC has a multiyear development agreement to rehabilitate and reuse the seven medical complex buildings and 462,605-square-foot main hospital, the former Hutchins and Crosman schools, as well as the JTPA nursing school.

One of Detroit’s worst intersections will reopen with pedestrian plaza

 

intersection.0.jpg

 

Back in November, we learned that the intersection at Randolph, Macomb, Gratiot, and Broadway (yes, all of those streets) would start to be reconfigured. Readers had actually voted it one of the worst intersections in the city just a few weeks before. The wide, numerous roads created quite a barrier for pedestrians between downtown and Greektown. A large portion of the road has been blocked off since, and now we’ve learned that it will reopen for pedestrians for Opening Day.

Gilbert offers economic impact study for fail jail site; county not swayed

 

detroitsoccer.0.jpg

 

In the next move of the chess match for the fail jail site, Dan Gilbert’s Rock Ventures released an economic impact study to show how their proposed entertainment/soccer complex would benefit the area. The county’s response was basically, “meh.”

 

The study looked at construction and permanent jobs created by both the building of the soccer stadium and the new criminal justice facility vs. just building the new jail at the Gratiot site.

 

In a statement, Rock Ventures says that,

 

Conducted by the Center for Sport & Policy at the University of Michigan, commissioned by Rock Ventures and supported by the Downtown Detroit Partnership, the study estimated an economic impact of $2.39 billion from the construction of the combined project. By contrast, the total economic impact of completing the jail on the Gratiot Avenue site is estimated at $352 million, or over $2 billion less than the impact of Rock Ventures’ proposal.

 

In addition, the planned development on the Gratiot Site will generate long-term economic impact upon completion, including an estimated 2,106 permanent jobs within the commercial and entertainment complex. These jobs are estimated to generate $6.4 million in local and state income tax revenue every year, including $4.9 million in State of Michigan income taxes, and $1.5 million in City of Detroit income taxes.

New details emerge for redevelopment of Herman Kiefer Complex

 

HermanKiefer.0.jpg

 

It’s been a while since we’ve heard updates on the redevelopment of the Herman Kiefer site, the sprawling 17.9 acre site with eight buildings covering 526,000 square feet. It’s located in the Virginia Park district, right off the Lodge between Taylor and Pingree.

 

Curbed visited the site in 2014, when the city and developers were deciding what to do with it. New York developer Ron Castellano is working with the city to develop a plan and timeline for the complex. The Detroit News reports on it extensively today. Here are a few of the details:

 

*One of the pavilions will be redeveloped into a four-story hotel with 13 large rooms, a community kitchen, and conference space. This should have an end-of-year timeline.

*A 10,000-square-foot skate park is planned inside the old Hutchins school with Detroit-based skateboarding group Community Push.

*Castellano has bought 300 vacant lots and 100 abandoned homes in the area.

Here's what could be coming to more than 7 acres in Midtown

 

AR-170419987.jpg?MaxW=880&v=201411210943

Site — rumored possible Target location — expected to be developed by Adam and George Nyman

 

Although a great deal of the specifics are still yet to be determined, this morning I was able to get a peek of what could be coming to more than 7 acres of property at the southeast corner of Woodward and Mack avenues in Detroit's Midtown.

 

As a refresher, it's that site, owned by father and son developers George and Adam Nyman, where Target Corp. has been a rumored possible tenant.

 

George Nyman, sitting at a long table in a conference room in his downtown Birmingham office on West Brown Street, confirmed a meeting with the Minnesota-based retail giant, but both he and his son said it's still a long way off before tenants and the specific mix of uses is determined.

The amount of development in Detroit right now is just incredible. It's outpacing much healthier cities, and is spilling over to Toledo. I hope Monroe, Michigan gets in on it too. That was always such a great historic port town between Toledo and Detroit. There also is a decent public beach in Monroe (decent by Lake Erie standards). Monroe has tons of potential for spinoff from Detroit and Toledo. Its urban core is solid and Monroe's historic housing is about as good as it gets in America for the price.

 

Does anyone know if any projects have been announced in Monroe yet?

Singh on Pace to Open Mixed-use Development at I-696/Woodward in 2019

 

Rendering1-ab5cfd53-6e9ab969.jpeg?ver=1492450819&aspectratio=1.7509727626459

 

Singh Development in West Bloomfield Township has received approval from the Royal Oak Planning Commission for South Main Apartments and South Main Shops, a $35-million, four-story project to be built on a vacant, city-owned parcel at I-696 and Woodward Avenue.

 

To be considered for final approval by the Royal Oak Commission in the coming weeks, the 244-apartment community, along with 10,000-square feet of commercial space, would fill a long vacant 4.2-acre parcel bounded by I-696, Woodward, Main Street, and Tiffany Lane. The land was cleared in the 1980s to make way for the construction of I-696, which opened in 1989.

House panel OKs tax incentives for developers

 

hudsons-site-1_1487800088951_2793599_ver1.0_640_360.jpg

 

A House panel approved a package of bills Wednesday that would let companies developing long-vacant land collect taxes from new revenue raised by the development that would otherwise go to the state.

 

The panel approved the bills in a series of 10-3 votes, with three Republicans voting against the plan to let companies withhold a portion of their taxes to encourage development projects that supporters say wouldn’t otherwise happen. They are now eligible for a House floor vote.

 

A statewide coalition of urban communities such as Pontiac as well as Quicken Loans chairman and Detroit developer Dan Gilbert says communities across the state would benefit from the proposed state tax incentives because they would breathe new economic life into derelict properties.

20-story-plus high-rise may be aimed for New Center

 

A large, skyline-changing residential development is under consideration for the southwest corner of Woodward Avenue and West Grand Boulevard.

 

Nothing is finalized and any possible groundbreaking would be months away, or even longer, but if it is a development of the magnitude being discussed — 20 stories or more — it would be another cornerstone cementing the QLine's draw for large mixed-use development along its 3.3-mile route.

 

A high-rise is just one of the possibilities for the site, said David Grasso, CEO of Grasso Holdings Inc., which is behind an entity called 6565 Woodward Holdings LLC that is under contract to purchase the property from Midtown Detroit Inc. It was registered in January.

A bold vision for Highland Park

 

When looking at real estate and development in Detroit over the next few years, it’s important to keep an eye on Highland Park, which has incredible opportunity along the Woodward corridor and beyond.

 

Last year, Highland Park mayor Hubert Yopp tasked the Tax Increment Financing Authority (TIFA) Board of Directors to develop a two, five, and ten year plan for development in Highland Park. Board chair Theresa Johnson plans on focusing first on demonstrating that there is demand for development, through community-driven, targeted, short term wins in multi-modal infrastructure, activated public spaces, and pop-up experiences that celebrate the strength and vitality of Highland Park.

City makes way for sledding hill, dog park, skate park along riverfront

A new dog park and skate park will be built on the 3-acre site, Mayor Mike Duggan's office announced Monday.

 

Detroit Animal Care and Control moved late last year to a former Humane Society of Michigan shelter off the Chrysler Service Drive, north of Grand Boulevard.

Meeting set to discuss future of I-375 in Detroit

 

Government officials will host an open house May 17 to gain public insight on an environmental study of I-375 and the future of the freeway in downtown Detroit.

 

Representatives of the Michigan Department of Transportation and City of Detroit Planning Department will lead discussions about the next steps involved in the 2014 "Planning and Environmental Linkage" study on the freeway that leads to the riverfront, an MDOT news release said.

 

The study said the freeway's design is outdated and infrastructure is in poor condition, which was built more than 50 years ago. The study offered six alternatives for I-375's future, including transforming it.

A ceremony will be held to break ground on the $150 million Elton Park project that's planned to bring 420 apartments and 30,000 square feet of retail space to a 4.5-acre swath of the neighborhood west of downtown. The name comes from a park that was demolished in the late 1950s to make way for the John C. Lodge Freeway.

 

The $45 million first phase of the project, announced last year, includes 151 apartments totaling 124,000 square feet, averaging 821 square feet, and just over 13,000 square feet of retail. That phase is expected to be complete by late summer 2018, according to the developer.

Construction is about to begin on a 74,000-square-foot office building in downtown Royal Oak now that it has been pre-leased for about 85 percent of its space by three major tenants, including the developer.

 

The building at 150 W. Second St. at 11 Mile Road will house the offices of Auburn Hills-based research firm Gongos Inc.; Southfield-based developer Etkin LLC, which is developing the building and moving its headquarters there; and Stout Risius Ross, which currently has space in the Southfield Town Center.
