City (7/14)



  1. Okay, was able to find passing mention in a 1997 article about planning in the area that 100 acres was annexed in 1995. I measured the portion north of Knapp St NE and it's 100 acres. So, I think I've cleared that up. Still wondering about the little "box" south of Knapp St NE, if that was part of the 1960 annexation or came later, too.
  2. Thanks. I wonder if anyone has any accurate annexation maps for this area or articles, at least? I have one old map showing the entire area having been annexed in the big 1960 annexation. I have another showing the southern half of this area having been annexed in 1992. And I have a more detailed map of annexations through 1961 which would show there is no way this was annexed in 1960.
  3. I was curious if anyone knew when the areas that now comprise Celebration Village and Knapp's Crossing were annexed, and if there are any stories behind the annexations? I have an old map showing that the Knapp's Corner portion in the south was annexed in 1994, but don't have any information on the portion north of Knapp Street.
  4. Capital City Market is great. The continued crowds prove that there was a demand for this. Anyway, a better photo of the building from a few months ago. Gillespie Group The hotel portion is supposed to open in next month or February. The apartments are almost all leased out.

  7. Cranes: Crain's Detroit Business
  8. The height was lowered on this one since I last updated this. Also, the foundation work is finally done. It was a long and arduous construction - they hit pockets of foul water and parts of the former foundation, which added a few months to drilling - but the cranes will finally rise on Monday for vertical construction. Bedrock's Hudson site moves to next phase with arrival of cranes Here's a diagram courtesy contractor Barton Malow, and you can get an idea of the hundreds of caissons they had to put in the ground - and how deep they had to go - for this one:
  9. Newman Lofts opened last week. With that, the project is largely complete save for any interior build-outs that occur in the remaining groundfloor commercial units.

  10. $250 million Red Cedar project to break ground on hotels
  11. Bedrock has filed an obstruction evaluation with the FAA on Tuesday for the "Block" building: https://oeaaa.faa.gov/oeaaa/external/searchAction.jsp?action=displayOECase&oeCaseID=416118603&row=4 Looks like vertical construction will be seen starting in weeks since foundation work is pretty much completed. Still waiting on word on exactly what changes they are going to make to the tower, though. But it's a good sign that the building height of the Block hasn't been reduced. Also, the two tower cranes: 1. Liebherr 710 HC-L 32/64 Luffing Tower Crane, 450 feet https://oeaaa.faa.gov/oeaaa/external/searchAction.jsp?action=displayOECase&oeCaseID=416243348&row=2 2.

  12. Newman Lofts at Center City is still finishing up. Here is the amenities deck. Newman Lofts is a 55+ building next door to Landmark on the Grand, which is marketed towards students: https://twitter.com/HarborBayREA/status/1169231522278326272 Ground floor is still coming along: https://twitter.com/MiPlaceNews/status/1161287987512119297
