MGM Grand Detroit Casino Rendering

Recommended Posts


Woah, is it just me, or is that style like Michigan Central Station had a baby. There are so many subtle gestures in its design. I like it. This is really exciting.

Fine with me. To be honet, in its location, I think the height is just right. It should make a nice corner edge to the downtown area. Imagine having this 40 story building totally isolated from all of downtown.... it would look pretty dumb in my book.

just my $0.02

I agree with you on that wolverine... the NW corner of downtown has a TON of potential if cards are played correctly. With so much empty land, I am interested to see the development strategy.

Hellz yes it could have been worse! Did you see some of those other renderings? Some were awful looking boxes. This is one is really not all that bad for casino architecture, especially for one going up in Michigan.

Is this new building going to replace another existing facility, or is this the 1st for MGM in Detroit? Don't you already have 2 or 3 casino's already, not counting the one in Windsor?

The design for the hotel is pretty bland, but I'm not complaining, since it could be much worse. To be honest, it's about what I expected.

And I want them to built 4-5 more towers on their site of varying heights, and slightly different designs. I can't believe the city is going to be stuck with one tower on this giant piece of land. This is a superblock if you've never seen one before. It's like they took the RenCen's footprint, but with half the space and "umph."

I don't think I'll ever be pleased with this one. lol Especially since this whole complex looks like it would fit better at the Motor City site, the Southfield Town Center, or some other suburban freeway exit. lol

I dont mind the tower and it is basically what i expected. I would like to see how it sits in a site plan though. That would be a true indicator of how suburban this thing is gonna look. I saw the MGM Grand Macau right after the Detroit rendering and I thought that would look cool in Detroit. If something is going to be isolated at least make it unique.

Im wondering if MGM will explore condo/residential possibilities here in Detroit like they are in other cities. With all of the land over by the Casino they could create a district that all shares a similar theme. I hoping too that after the final Casino is built that developers look to connect that area to foxtown.

This is the site plans posted on the Fab Ruins.

Wow seeing where that tower is, and how big it is compared to the rest of the site im not liking this as much anymore. I thought it would take up more of the site but that rendering is just from a quirky perspective. I hope Greektown turns out much more urban than MGM.

Yeah, I was hoping that the tower would be on top of the Casino. But when I saw steel rising last month. I realized that wasn't going to be the case.
