A new mixed-use development is coming to Midtown Detroit, with 3750 Woodward Avenue LLC, announcing plans for, The Mid, located at 3750 Woodward Ave. The nearly 3.8-acre development will include a luxury boutique hotel, luxury condominiums, co-living housing, multi-family housing, retail space, parking and interwoven public spaces for community, resident, and visitor engagement. At a total investment of $310 million, the initial phase of The Mid is slated to open to the public in December 2020.
Inspired by Midtown’s music, art, history, and culture, The Mid is located at the epicenter of Midtown’s bustling corridors, melding the City’s Central Business District with New Center. The Mid aims to bring together the community and residents from a multitude of backgrounds to experience all that Midtown has to offer.
“There was a real opportunity in Midtown to address a number of community needs, from housing and retail, to inclusive public spaces creating a walkable, welcoming, uplifting space,” said Shane Napper, development manager, 3750 Woodward Ave, LLC. “The Mid is a very ambitious project with a distinctive personality designed to celebrate the community and give visitors to the area a memorable Detroit experience.”
Residential occupancy rates in Midtown currently exceed 98 percent. To meet the demand for more housing in the area, The Mid will provide 250 multi-family residences, including an affordable housing component, a few hundred co-living units, and 60 high-end luxury condos to accommodate the unprecedented and growing demand for various types of housing with state-of-the-art amenities.
A centerpiece of the project will be a 228-room luxury boutique hotel by an award-winning hospitality brand to be announced in early summer. The 216,000-square-foot hotel will include a dining venue and cocktail lounge with menus curated by award-winning chefs.
In addition to a luxury boutique hotel, The Mid will feature up to 100,000 square feet of retail space ranging from small, neighborhood businesses to a grocery retailer, catering to both the Midtown community and the residents and patrons within the development. More details will be released on retailers as plans are solidified.
The development will also include a 744-space parking deck.
Groundbreaking on The Mid is expected this summer, creating 1,800 construction jobs and 400 permanent jobs.
“This transformational project is another example of the continuing high-level of investment and activity in Midtown,” said Sue Mosey, executive director, Midtown Detroit Inc. “We’re excited to welcome The Mid because it will add so much to the area – housing, needed services to residents, create more traffic for existing businesses, and serve as an attraction to patrons frequenting Midtown’s thriving food and entertainment district.”
