Preliminary work has been happening around the site of the Statler Hotel, and City Club Apartments CBD Detroit announced in a statement that groundbreaking will take place in the next 30 days. Crain’s reports that the $70 million development will have 288 apartments plus retail space, and should be completed within 16 months. Jonathan Holtzman, founder and CEO, City Club Apartments, says that more announcements about the retail and restaurant space, plus amenities and finishes will be announced at the groundbreaking.

“It’s interesting to note that this is the first ground-up mixed-use, conventionally financed high rise under construction in the City of Detroit in the last 30 years,” says Holtzman in the statement. The updated rendering of the new development is shown above.


Last week, we learned that Google would be moving its Birmingham offices to downtown Detroit. Crain’s is reporting that the move could be within the District Detroit and next to the Little Caesars Arena. The article states that the building would be on Henry Street and would have more than enough room for its offices. Nothing is finalized yet.

Also, Crain’s reports that we could hear more about a sports-medicine complex next to the arena, which has been in the works for a while. The current news states that the Detroit Medical Center is in talks to partner on this development, and it would be available to both athletes and the public. It would be located in between the Mike Ilitch School of Business and the LCA.


New listings for the Selden in Midtown offer us a sneak peek of what the new luxury condos will look like. They’re listing for over $400 per square foot and it looks like they’ll be ready for occupancy in December. Also, SheWolf, a new restaurant, will open on the first floor.


DBusiness reports that the Detroit Club will reopen again this winter after a renovation by its latest owners. According to DBusiness, “As part of the restoration, Luke Investments, which acquired the club several years ago, have added numerous improvements, including 10 luxury estate suites on the fourth floor, a billiards room, along with a cigar bar and neighboring lounge on the third floor, and a spa in the lower level.”

The historic club will remain private, but will have a restaurant that is open to the public, according to Eater Detroit.
