Bridgeworks is a combination of historic preservation and new construction. It consists of mixed-income housing, a drastic increase in the enhanced public realm, a boutique hotel, and the creation of multiple access points to the entry of the lower level of the Detroit Superior Bridge. The mixed-income housing consists of 170 apartments: 18 two-bedroom, 71 one-bedroom, and 81 studio. The hotel includes 130 guest rooms and a large lobby area that will include a coffee-shop. On the eastern side of the site, the 11,000+ square feet of park space will create an access point for the entry of the "underbridge" a site that has hosted IngenuityFest and other public gatherings celebrating arts and culture.
Bridgeworks location connects it to the 81, 51, and 26 Transit lines and only a few blocks from the Redline.
I am presenting to the community for the following reasons:
- Conceptual/Design Feedback and Input
- Zoning Variance Support
