More details have been made available about the $300M re-development of the Brewster-Douglass site; it now appears that the residential component will more than double the amount of units already under construction in the area, including Brush Park.  Located just west and north of I-75 (bordered by Beaubien & Wilkins), the massive 22 acre parcel that was once home to the Brewster-Douglass Projects, will be transformed into retail, commercial, and (mostly) residential.  It’s expected that 913 residential units will be built; 648 apartments, along with 265 for-sale units.  In addition to the residential units, 19,000 sqft of retail space is expected, along with an 80 room hotel, and 60,000 sqft of early childhood education space.

The Brewster-Douglass Projects, originally consisting of six 14-story high-rises, two 6-story buildings and apartment row houses, were demolished in 2014.  Dan Gilbert and his real estate arm Bedrock LLC, agreed to purchase the parcel from the City of Detroit for $23M earlier this year, though the sale is still pending approval from HUD.  You can read more via Crain’s Detroit here; to read our original post on the project, click here.
