Ilitch Organization Achieves Zoning Approval for New Detroit Events Center


Detroit City Council members have approved a zoning application for the new Detroit Events Center, new residential, office and retail space, and a community greenspace and a piazza. The development that will lead to a connected, dynamic District Detroit where people can live, work and play is underway as crews mobilize on the site, bringing new activity and jobs to Detroit, the region and the state. Along with the project comes affordable and market-rate housing and historical preservation. The new Detroit Events Center, slated to be completed in 2017, will be the home of the Detroit Red Wings, as well as world-class entertainment, music and community events. It will be a model of innovation for such a facility in a downtown setting, serving not only as a powerful, continual generator of activity, but also a good urban neighbor. Detroit residents are expected to earn more than $100 million in income from the Events Center.
