Retailer H&M plans to open its first-ever Detroit store in a 25,000-square-foot space spanning three Albert Kahn-designed buildings along the west side of Woodward Avenue between John R. Street and Park Avenue.
The retailer plans to open the spot in the fall of 2019. Bedrock, the prolific Detroit-based real estate firm that owns the buildings, announced the impending opening on March 6.
The firm also provided some background on the trio of buildings: 1505, 1515, and 1529 Woodward. The first “has roots in the fashion industry, as it was once home to the Richman Brothers Co., a men’s haberdashery. The building has undergone significant renovations and is now home to offices of International Bancard and Rocket Fiber.”
As for 1515 and 1529 Woodward, their facades “recently underwent complete restorations and were once home to the Grinnell Bros. music store and the Sanders candy store, respectively.”
