The redevelopment of the site formerly home to J.L. Hudson’s Department Store in Detroit is set to begin with demolition between the end of 2017 and spring 2018. A collaboration between SHoP Architects and locally based Hamilton Anderson Associates (HAA), construction on the project will begin next fall and is slated for completion during the summer of 2022.

The $900 million project is expected to span up to one million square feet with 103,000 square feet dedicated to retail, dining, and a marketplace. An additional 168,000 square feet of event and conference space will be created along with 263,000 square feet of offices. A 93,000-square-foot exhibition space will be outfitted onsite as well. The overhauled site will be punctuated with a 52-story tower that will become the tallest building in the city.
