  1. Detroit General Development

    The first rendering of the 310,000 square foot addition to the back of the Compuware Building was released today:
  2. In Gilbert running down his four projects for downtown, the Detroit News seems to have included a rendering of the base not seen before: We're looking across Cadillac Square, here, into the passage to the interior courtyard of the first block of this development.
  3. Hudson Block | 800 Feet+

    It was already the tallest. And the increase in height is not just the addition of a crown; they moved residential from the bottom fifteen floors beneath the tower originally into the tower.
  4. Hudson Block | 800 Feet+

    Design tweaks have revealed a tower over 800 feet. It now includes an observation deck on its roof: Groundbreaking remains December 1.
  5. 50 Monroe to get de-skinned?

    Thanks! EDIT: Did a bit more research of some older pictures and it seems the Helmer Building was the north building at 21 Ottawa NW, and that the building immediately to the south was the Dwight Bros. Paper Company, or at least they were a tenant. Though, I'm not sure if they were constructed concurrently. I can also vaguely make out a name at the back of the 50 Monroe NW that reads "Powers Tyson Printing Company," maybe? Not sure when this one was constructed, either. An article speaks of "the three buildings" and "dating between 1890 and 1911" but doesn't specify which dates belong to which buildings.
  6. 50 Monroe to get de-skinned?

    Well, yes, this is what I was saying. I asked if anyone knows what the Ottawa building's address will be possibly basing it off whatever it might have been in the past.
  7. 50 Monroe to get de-skinned?

    What a cool project. Reminds me of the de-skinning of the old Arbaugh Department Store here in Lansing when they turned it into loft apartments, which I had no idea was a historic building. lol Anyway, kind of random question, but when the buildings are disconnected, what's the address for the Ottawa portion going to be? I imagine it had it's own address before being joined with the Monroe portion.
  8. 20 Fulton E, Mixed Use Development

    I don't know where I saw it - but remember it only being mentioned in passing - but I heard 20 Fulton East has officially been completed/ got its occupancy certificate; is this true?
  9. Esker Square - Holt

    A great project by a Lansing developer has been proposed for downtown Holt, Lansing's inner-ring southern suburb. $12M project in downtown Holt will add restaurants, apartments The project will includes two buildings, and will house 60 apartments and 8 retail spots totaling 28,000 square feet. This will rise on the eastside of Cedar immediately north of the center of downtown. Groundbreaking is scheduled for next spring.
  10. 601 Bond

    It does appear that elevation massing is a bit different from the rendering, as you can see an extra mechanical level above the deck. EDIT: Actually, maybe everything else is correct on the massing and it simple doesn't show the mechanical penthouse. Anyway, what I found interesting was the height limit, and the bonus given. What is this parcel zoned, and how did they get the bonus height? Always been interested in this kind of stuff.
  11. Years in the making, the redevelopment of the former Michigan School for the Blind campus (closed in 1995) in the Old Forest neighborhood on the northwest side of Lansing began this week. The first phase is was the demolition of the old auditorium building to make room for Walnut Park Apartments, a four story, 106,500 square foot, 72-unit mixed-income apartment building that will include a Lansing Police Department substation on its ground floor. It will also be LEED certified. Developed by TWG out of Indianapolis, the project will cost $12.5 million and is scheduled for completion by September of next year. The next phase will be the renovation of the historic administration building and the former high school as the Abigail Senior Apartments, a 60-unit senior apartment redevelopment scheduled for completion in the third quarter of 2019. The project will costs $13.6 million. The building will include significant community space for the surrounding Old Forest neighbrhood. Before this, the Braille Library constructed in 1966 was renovated into the Neighborhood Empowerment Center, a community center home to the local Head Start, Greater Lansing Housing Coalition, and Ingham County Land Bank. It was renovated between 2010 and 2011: Finally, the old superintendent's house constructed in 1914 was renovated into the Old Town Manor office building in 2009:
  12. It appears the aerial rendering was the most accurate. The office tower will be 536 feet:
  13. No, it doesn't include the antenna. Cadillac Tower is 437 feet to its elevator tower on the roof/mechanical penthouse (416 feet to its main roof deck). EDIT: And now there is another rendering out showing it well taller than Cadillac Tower. I wish they'd just give some kind of preliminary height instead of these constantly conflicting renderings.
  14. Wrote the Detroit Free Press author about this, and he says he was told it'd be approximately the height of the Cadillac Tower...which it looks in the new renderings. It certainly doesn't look like it's going to be 60-70 feet tall than Cadillac Square.
  15. Okay, so the plan HAS been expanded. The office tower is now 35 stories. Can someone change the title to reflect this?
