Hudson Block | 800 Feet & 58 Stories

Recommended Posts

Back in March, Dan Gilbert formally proposed Detroiit's new tallest building.  It will rise 52 stories and 734 feet - which three underground floors of parking - and will include a 250-unit apartment tower, and a podium with office, retail, conference, and tech/arts/cultural space.  It is scheduled to break ground in December of this year.

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.

The tower broke ground, today.  It will become the tallest building in the state.

The bottom has been fleshed out, more, but the renderings still leave the top as a bit of a mystery.  It does better show the overhanging observation deck, though.

Wow!  This is actually happening?!  Very very cool.  I sense a boom coming to Detroit.  A tower like this would be amazing in GR.

Spent the last week in Detroit. You know you're a visitor when you love allllll the snow.

Not the most updated renderings, but I was curious about the skyline, too, after passing the site.

Thus far, most of the work has been happening underground in the 4-level garage.  They first had to stablize the walls of the garage before heavy demolition could take place.  Well, demolition finally began above-ground last week.  A pic from Friday couresty of 48307 over at DetroitYes:

This is massive work, as you can see, given the depth and surface area of the site, though, demolition actually seems to be ahead of schedule.  Above-ground work wasn't expected until next month.

The Hudson website has put up a 3D model view of the project.  Here's a screenshot from it:
