Olympia Development of Michigan, the Detroit Medical Center and Warner Norcross + Judd LLP celebrated the groundbreaking today on a new, five-story medical, office and retail building at 2715 Woodward Avenue in The District Detroit. Located between the award-winning Little Caesars Arena and the new Mike Ilitch School of Business at Wayne State University, the 127,000-square-foot construction project will add increasing density and economic activity to Detroit’s continuing resurgence.

The new, $70 million building will replace a former surface parking lot at Sproat Street and will bring four floors of Class A office space and 17,000 square feet of street-level retail to The District Detroit.

“The Detroit Medical Center and Warner Norcross + Judd are two world-class organizations and we are thrilled to welcome them to The District Detroit,” said Christopher Ilitch, President and CEO of Ilitch Holdings, Inc.  “Projects like this continue the progress and momentum in our City and in The District Detroit.  We are excited to have both companies in neighborhood and contributing to Detroit’s resurgence.” 

Olympia Development of Michigan and DMC announced a 20-year agreement to build and operate an innovative, state-of-the-art 50,000-square-foot sports medicine facility adjacent to Little Caesars Arena in June 2018. The plan will add new professional jobs, medical services and retail opportunities in The District Detroit, along with hundreds of construction and construction-related jobs.

DMC is already the official healthcare provider for the Detroit Red Wings and the Detroit Tigers and has provided this service for more than 10 years. Physicians for the healthcare system also offer on-site orthopedic care for players during games at Little Caesars Arena and Comerica Park. The $65 million sports facility will feature the healthcare system’s specially-trained clinical and rehabilitation teams to provide athletes immediate access to sports-related care, along with medical research and sports simulation services.
