The Gilbert organization had boasted that its gigantic development, the Hudson’s site tower on Woodward Avenue in downtown Detroit, might be the tallest in the state.
Now, that claim may not come to fruition.
Bedrock officials Wednesday gave an update on the project, and said it may no longer be the tallest, and that a public sky deck is no longer part of the plan, reports Candice Wiliams of the The Detroit News:
The decision to remove the observation deck and possibly adjust the tower height were made as Bedrock considers a hotel operator for the tower portion of the development.
“A hotel is definitely a very, very strong possibility,” said Joe Guziewicz, vice president of construction for Bedrock. “Some of the reason we’re still in design refinement is as we get that hotel operator online, they are going to have a lot of impact on the function of the building, the number of units and ultimately the height of the building.”
