Fix-up Coming To Masonic Temple, Cass Park?
Louis Aguilar of the Detroit News reports a plan is in the works for a $38-million fix-up for Masonic Temple and the surrounding Cass Park area
The plan is the work of a team of state and city economic power brokers, according to information that was posted online by the Michigan Magnet Fund.
"At this stage, it is expected the project will be able to close in six to eight months," according to an online memo, written about a month ago, by the Magnet Fund. It's not clear how long the memo was online, but it was removed Friday after The Detroit News made telephone calls to fund officials.
Plans call for a $9.3 million parking garage, as well as $5 million in inside upgrades that include a new geothermal heating system and more women's rest rooms.
The 14-story complex has 1,037 rooms and multiple theater and entertainment venues.
