Welcome to Friday Open Threads, wherein we'll pass the mic to readers to speak up about topics of interest, distress, horror, etc. Have something you want discussed? Let us know. This week’s topic: Looking ahead in Detroit development.
Summer is coming to an end and we should see quite a few developments around Detroit open in the coming months. Of course, the first is the highly anticipated, often debated Little Caesars Arena, starts its preview week after Labor Day. After that, we should see some residential projects nearing the finish line, including 28 Grand and the Plaza. By the end of the year, we could see The Siren Hotel at the Wurlitzer Building open.
What a time to be in Detroit.
As we start previewing what’s to come this year and into 2018, we’d like to know which projects you’re looking forward to the most.
Is it the renovation of a long-vacant building, like the Metropolitan? Is it new construction on vacant land, like the Monroe Blocks or City Modern? Or maybe it’s something transformative, like the Hudson’s site or the East Riverfront development.
Let us know what’s on your mind and what you’re looking forward to in the next few months and few years. We’ll try to get more updates on them in the coming months.
