New Web Cam Shows Mike Ilitch School of Business Construction Progress

Watch construction progress live as it happens at the new Mike Ilitch School of Business at Wayne State University. New live webcams are now streaming video of the construction site located at the corner of Woodward Avenue and Temple Street in The District Detroit

Classes begin in 2018 at the new business school, which was made possible by a $40 million gift from Mike and Marian Ilitch, as Wayne State University extends its campus south into the center of the Woodward Square neighborhood near the rapidly progressing Little Caesars Arena.

The Mike Ilitch School of Business will serve more than 3,000 undergraduate and graduate students and provide flexible teaching, research, office and community spaces for students and faculty. The new educational facility has a sleek, open and smart design that evokes energy, collaboration and innovation.

Detroit-based Christman-Brinker has been selected as construction manager and Detroit-based architectural firm Smith Group JJR led the development of the updated design for the new structure— continuing the Michigan Made, Detroit Built successes in The District Detroit.
