Update: The Downtown Detroit Partnership has released the first rendering, seen above. More will be revealed at the meeting and in an article on Tuesday.
Earlier this year, the Downtown Detroit Partnership chose Toronto’s PUBLIC WORK to lead the redesign of the public space in Capitol Park. The design will be revealed in a community meeting.
The meeting will be held at the Detroit Institute of Music Education, or DIME, at 1265 Griswold Street at 6 p.m. on Monday, September 11. Anyone who’s interested in attending should register here.
Attendees will be able to view the renderings and give feedback, which will be taken into consideration as the project moves forward.
Construction should start next spring, with the park completed in fall 2018.
This area has seen a great deal of construction in recent years. 28 Grand, a building with micro-apartments, is finishing up. Last winter, the Griswold was opened on top of a nearby parking structure. The David Stott Building is currently being restored. Lear opened up their Innovation Center last fall. And more small businesses keep opening in the Albert.
