DETROIT — Bedrock has acquired the Roberts Riverwalk Hotel located at 1000 River Place in Detroit’s East Riverfront neighborhood. The purchase price was undisclosed. The seller was Michael Roberts, a St. Louis-based business mogul, according to Crain’s Detroit Business. The 108-room hotel features 5,500 square feet of banquet and event space as well as 126 parking spaces.
Bedrock says this acquisition aligns with its mission to further position the riverfront as an ideal site for sustainable urban development. In the East Riverfront area, Bedrock has previously purchased the former UAW-GM Center for Human Resources and a portfolio of properties previously owned by the Stroh family. Bedrock plans to make additional updates regarding the riverfront in 2023. Bedrock, the real estate arm of Rocket Mortgage founder Dan Gilbert, maintains a portfolio of more than 19 million square feet of office, retail and residential space.
