The good news just keeps coming from within the City of Detroit. With the Historic Brush Park district of Detroit already on the verge of a rebirth, another new development has been announced for the area.
Work on the site could begin soon for a new five-story building with 200 lofts, a 300-space parking deck and ground floor retail. The Scott at Brush Park is a $60 million building planned for Woodward Avenue and Erskine Street, a site that has been empty and blighted for more than a decade, according to state economic officials.
“At this point, we’re going for building permits. We could starting digging in the next couple of weeks,” said Richard Broder, a principal of the project.
On Monday, a $1.5 million loan for the development was approved by the Michigan Strategic Fund Board, which is part of the state’s economic development agency.
“Brush Park is poised to regain its luster,” Broder said. “It’s really a big connector to what is good and new exciting in downtown, and what is good and exciting in Midtown.”
