Plans for the development at Cadillac Square in Detroit have been presented by local real estate company Bedrock. The 1.5 million square foot mixed-use campus site is close to Campus Martius Park, Cadillac Square, and Ford Field. This is the stadium where the NFL’s Detroit Lions play.
The implementation of the project will be carried out in three phases. On September 1, 2024, following the year’s NFL Draft, which is expected to draw thousands of visitors to the city, construction of phase I will start. Phase II is set to commence on October 1, 2026, and phase III is set to start on January 1, 2028.
The expected completion date of the entire project has not been revealed.
