The Developer, Related Olympia Predevelopment Company LLC, which consists of The Related Companies LP and Olympia Development of Michigan LLC, proposes the next phase of development plans in The District Detroit, aimed at attracting and retaining talent and driving forward inclusive economic development in Detroit and Michigan. After an extensive period of community outreach and feedback, the potential development would include the construction and operation of 10 renovated historic or new projects, including 4 mixed-income residential buildings, 4 commercial office buildings and 2 hotels, along with additional open public and green space.

The proposed projects include integrated parking plans, a projected 1,253,000 square feet of commercial office space, 146,000 square feet of retail space, 467 hotel rooms and 695 residential units. At least 20% of the residential units will be available to rent at rates affordable to those earning no more than 50% of Area Median Income, equivalent to an annual salary of $35,800 or less for a two-person household.

The Developer seeks governmental approvals by the first quarter of 2023 with a goal to commence site remediation and construction on the first of the projects in 2023.
