The brick-dropping Wurlitzer is threatening to go boutique and the Roosevelt Hotel now has windows. Hell, even the infamous Corktown Inn is proudly swapping hookers for hipsters. Where might the magic spread next? Keep an eye on the old Detroit Fire Department headquarters downtown, where a long-awaited $29M conversion into the Foundation Hotel could soon show signs of life.
With plans for 100 rooms and a decor theme that celebrates Detroit history, the Foundation could begin construction within 90 days, reports the Free Press. A job listing for a hotel manager pegs the ETA at spring 2016, so things really need to get moving soon. These renderings from McIntosh Poris are definitely a good start.
