Bedrock to Begin Vertical Construction at Hudson Tower Site in Detroit

The project site now has two cranes, signaling that vertical construction can begin.

DETROIT — Two construction cranes now occupy the site that eventually will be home to the highly anticipated Hudson Tower project in downtown Detroit. The cranes signal that vertical construction can begin and Bedrock is able to bring the project into the next phase of development. Plans call for a 680-foot-tall mixed-use tower that will include 1.3 million square feet of retail, office, hotel, residential and public space. Bedrock, the real estate arm of billionaire businessman Dan Gilbert, founder of Quicken Loans, initially broke ground on the project in December 2017. It is now slated for completion in 2024. Southfield-based Barton Malow Co. is the general contractor. The project is a redevelopment of the former J.L. Hudson department store, which closed in 1984 and was imploded in 1998.
