Quicken Loans and Bedrock Real Estate Services CEO Dan Gilbert received approval this week for
In exchange for the old tenants' displacement, Bedrock claims that the redevelopment project will create a whopping 16 jobs. Gilbert will cover most of the more-than $10 million cost of the project, but will net $1.65 million in tax credits from the federal government in part because he's "preserving" a historic building-and that's in addition to the $1 million loan. Gilbert bought the building in late 2013 for $325,000 from Dearborn developer Mousa Ahmad. Gilbert isn't the only one investing in this very hot part of midtown-developers just completed work on lofts in the old Detroit Savings Bank building, the city's oldest surviving highrise. Construction on Bedrock's Capitol Park building, located at 1215 Griswold, is expected to wrap up some time this fall.
