After Changes, New Tower Might Not Be Detroit's Tallest Tower After All
"Detroit's planned tallest new building may no longer in fact be the city's tallest when it opens on the old Hudson's site in a few years," reports John Gallagher.
The planned height of the tower has fluctuated between 734 feet and 900 feet in the past. Now it's unclear what heights the building will end up reaching. Joe Guziewicz, vice president of construction for Bedrock LLC, the developer of the site, says the final height is dependent on the project eventually landing a hotel operator.
The height is likely lowering because of the developer's plans to "[switch] the programming of the planned skyscraper tower on the Hudson's site from all residential to partly a hotel […] depending on the needs of whatever hotel operator is chosen."
The changes also mean the building will no longer include an observation tower. The project is already under construction, and is now expected to open in 2023.
