H&M to Open First Detroit Location in Downtown Woodward Shopping District
DETROIT — H&M, a Swedish fashion retailer, has unveiled plans to open its first Detroit location this fall. The trendy clothing retailer has signed a lease with Bedrock, the real estate arm of billionaire businessman Dan Gilbert, founder and chairman of Quicken Loans. H&M will occupy a 25,000-square-foot space within three Albert Kahn-designed buildings on the west side of Woodward Avenue. The historic Woodward shopping district was once home to Detroit’s most prominent department stores, including J.L. Hudson’s.
