Midtown Detroit is the Latest Spot for New Mixed-Use Target Opening

City Club Apartments, a 100-year-old Detroit company, and the City of Detroit jointly announced today that Target will become an anchor tenant in the newest City Club Apartments mixed-use community in Midtown. 

The announcement was made by City Club Apartments CEO Jonathan Holtzman, Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan and Midtown Detroit Inc. President Sue Mosey, according to a press release. 

“I would like to thank Target for choosing Detroit, Midtown and our next new mixed-use apartment hotel community in the city,” said Holtzman.  “This important announcement is a testament to Detroit’s strong leadership and continued momentum.  I applaud Mayor Mike Duggan, the planning and other departments, City Council President Brenda Jones, City Council, the Midtown neighborhood and Sue Mosey. It has been a major and coordinated effort to secure approvals on our initial plans from the planning and zoning departments, attract Target as an anchor tenant and complete our agreement with the landowner.”    

“The next stage of the development process is to develop and receive approval for a complete set of architectural plans and specs,” said Holtzman. “This development requires continued collaboration on many additional critical components. This will include approval of a Brownfield Tax Increment Financing (TIF), approval to be included in the surrounding New & Rehabilitation Neighborhood Enterprise Zone (NEZ), and additional approvals from various City of Detroit departments. We are actively in the process of meeting with general contractors.  This is a highly complex mixed-use residential and retail development, and we are interviewing companies with the depth, experience and expertise commensurate with the development.  We continue to be in an environment with significant labor and material shortages.” 

The new 32,000-square-foot store will be located at the SE Corner of Mack Avenue and Woodward Avenue and follow the format of similar sized stores around the country. For more information about Target store openings click here. 

“Any day we get to announce that a respected national retailer like Target is choosing to locate in our city is a great day,” said Mayor Duggan. “Over the past decade we have seen Midtown develop into a vibrant, diverse, mixed-income neighborhood.  Adding this Target store will provide an anchor retail presence to serve residents in the area and across the city.  I’m deeply grateful to Target, City Club Apartments, Midtown Detroit, Inc., and the dedicated City of Detroit staff that helped make this happen.”      

“Midtown Detroit, Inc. is thrilled that Target is coming to Midtown,” said Mosey.  “This store will offer grocery, general merchandise and other amenities for our growing downtown/Midtown population of over 25,000 residents and 30,000 college students.  We anticipate residents from other Detroit neighborhoods will also find this store a convenient shopping option.” 

Located on 2.4 acres at the SE Corner of Mack Avenue and Woodward Avenue, City Club Apartments Midtown will include 350 apartment and penthouse apartments in three distinctly designed and cohesively connected buildings with 186 underground parking spaces.  Twenty percent of the apartments will be affordable at 80% AMI.  The street level retail space will include the Target store, an international bank branch and a restaurant and café with dedicated outdoor seating.   

The apartment hotel will feature a lobby lounge library, indoor and outdoor theaters, Sky Park with rooftop pool, Bark Park, Sky Club outdoor terrace, 24/7 whole body fitness center, multi-function yoga and wellness room, business center and conference rooms. The new community will also include 24/7 time saving concierge services, weekly events and social programing and the fastest connectivity technologies. 

Available in four finishes, the unit floor plans will range in size from studios to three-bedroom penthouses, townhouses and terraces, and guests will be able to rent a furnished or unfurnished apartment or penthouse for a day, week, month or multiple years.   

“City Club Apartments Midtown will combine the service and amenities of a five-star hotel with engaging, connected and walkable urban apartment living,” said Holtzman. “The look and feel both inside and out will be stunning and our residents will have direct, walkable access to the city’s public transportation, arts and culture, parks and trails, sporting venues, retail, restaurants, and entertainment. We are in the beginning stages of meeting with the arts community to discuss the activation of our outdoor community Art Park.  Our intention is to create the Eastern Market of art and culture inviting local artists, galleries and theater groups to participate in our Art Park weekly events.” 

City Club Apartments Midtown will be National Green Building Standard (NGBS) certified and Wellness Certified (Fitwell). It will also be Clean Rated, which includes a regular 114-point checklist on social distancing, intensive cleaning methods and medical health reporting.
