This historic community in Corktown Detroit is undergoing a pivotal moment in development. ROSSETTI worked in partnership with Astral Weeks Development and Ginosko Development Company to create a project concept for a mixed-use development on a well-positioned gateway to the neighborhood.
The concepts allow maximum flexibility in addressing community needs in changing market conditions. The plan responds to the dense and robust Bagley street and gradually tapers as the site slopes toward railroad tracks. It eventually ends with outdoor space and resident amenities that celebrate the natural beauty, heritage and iconic views at the location.
It also overcomes serous challenges including a rail corridor, bridges and highways to connect the development to adjacent neighborhoods. Storefront retail fronts Bagley to reinforce the established neighborhood retail corridor. The proposed single building has a housing and unit mix of flats configured above walk ups and ground-level retail. Resident amenities and a rooftop terrace enhance community.
