    Detroit General Development

    Looks like FCA will be transforming it's idled Mack Avenue Engine 2 plant into a full assmebly plant for it's Jeep brand. Since the current engine plant is only around 650,000 square feet, I imagine this will also include an expansion.

    600 East Michigan - Urban Meijer

    The brownfield for this one - as well as some zoning variances - were recently approved by various city bodies, giving this plan its final approvals. They are hoping to have shovels in the ground by March: This site is one of the more legit brownfields given the former uses of the site which include a large auto repair shop and a gas station which left underground tanks on site along with quite a few other industrial businesses that are long-gone.

    Redevelopment of Brush Park

    Next month's Planning Commission agenda has a few Brush Park projects making it through the works. 1. Brush House (Brush/Erskine): This is the for amendment of the existing PD (Planned Development) for 168 units with groundfloor retail and commercial space with a level of underground parking. 2. Brush 8 (Brush/Watson): This is an amendment of the PD for 8 townhome units across the street from Brush House. 3. Brush Park Form-Based Overlay District: Looks like the city is finally getting around to starting the formal process of the adoption of a Form-Based Code for Brush Park. The city has required all new developments to conform to the draft Form-Based Code for many months, now, but it's never been formally adopted. Mostly, the city has been able to do this because they owned much of the empty land in the district upon which most of the new development is riding. The new overlay zone covers everything within the Brush Park Historic Detroit plus the Brewster-Wheeler Recreation Center Historic District, and even some parcels outside the historic district.
