A group of long-time friends is looking to open a 10,000-square-foot restaurant collective and beer garden made of shipping containers somewhere in Midtown, MLive reports.

Jonathan Hartzell, co-CEO of Detroit ShipYard, said his group expects to close in on one of three spots in Midtown within the next two weeks. It is slated to open in 2016, MLive reports.

Ian Thibodeau of MLive writes:

When Detroit ShipYard is finished, the multi-use facility will host five micro restaurants -- equivalent to food trucks -- two bars, indoor and outdoor seating, art gallery space, retail space and a place for big events.

In initial renderings, a massive projection screen dominates the courtyard.

There will be about 300 seats in the unique spot in addition to bar space.
