The browfield plan for the Ashton was completed,  according to The Ashton's facebook page, tonight:



Major milestone complete!

The Detroit City Council approved brownfield credits for the Ashton, a $58 million brand new 14-story luxury condo development complex located on the west end of downtown Detroit. The Ashton will be the first free-standing high rise complex built in Detroit in more than 20 years.

To be built on a parking lot adjacent to WDIV TV-4, the 103-unit new construction project will be developed by 600 Ventures Development Group a partnership of Eric Means and Brian Holdwick.


I was informed by the developer that the 14-story figure includes all floors, which includes 2 underground floors, so that tower hasn't expanded vertically.  However, the number of condo units has been increased from the original 96 to 103.

Looks like this one must be dead, because the developers, instead, announced a 154-room Cambria Hotel on the site, yesterday:


Update: Three new boutique hotels coming to downtown and Midtown



Not long after, Choice Hotels International, Inc. announced it will be redeveloping a 90,000-square-foot downtown building into the 154-room Cambria Hotel. Troy-based Koucar Management, which worked on two other downtown hotels, will oversee the Lafayette Boulevard project.

The Cambria Hotel will have a number of modern amenities (“bluetooth mirrors,” “immersive, spa-style bathrooms”), as well as a rooftop bar and upscale restaurant. This is part of a growing trend in Detroit hotels, notes Eater Detroit, to feature rooftop dining and drinking.

It’s slated to open in 2020.
