Crain’s Detroit Business
Anthony Soave’s sweeping mixed-use development in Corktown begins construction Monday.
A ceremony Monday afternoon broke ground on the $150 million Elton Park project that’s planned to bring 420 apartments and 30,000 square feet of retail space to a 4.5-acre swath of the neighborhood west of downtown. The name comes from a park that was demolished in the late 1950s to make way for the John C. Lodge Freeway.
May is turning out to be quite the busy month in the Detroit development world. The QLINE starts rolling May 12. Dan Gilbert’s transformational bill is making progress on the state level (which will help the Hudson’s site project). The Packard Plant will start construction later this month. The Foundation Hotel opens soon. And now, we have another large residential development that will start construction.
