We now have an idea of what the development on Third and Grand in New Center will look like. We reported a few months ago that developer Peter Cummings, who was behind bringing Whole Foods to Midtown, would be buying the parking lot previously owned by Henry Ford Health Systems and building a mixed-use retail/residential space. Cline Design out of North Carolina released their renderings this week, which have a similar look to some of their past projects.
Dbusiness reports that construction will break ground late this year, with leasing to start in 2018. The building will also have 20,000 square feet of commercial space, plus parking.
In this report, Cummings also says that most of the units will be studio to one bedrooms, with some two-bedroom offerings.
The location is a few blocks away from the M-1 rail line and just a block away from the iconic Fisher Building.
