Plans are moving forward to build an eight-story apartment building in a new downtown Detroit district that pays homage to the city’s former Paradise Valley district of Black-owned businesses.
The plans for Hastings Place, 1468-1496 Randolph Ave., call for 90 luxury apartments on top of ground-floor commercial space, with 20% of the apartments set aside as “affordable” with below-market rents.
The development’s lead developer, Hiram Jackson, said Friday that the project is back on track after some delays, most recently because of the coronavirus pandemic, and it will soon seek site plan approvals from the city. The project was the subject of a City Planning Commission hearing Thursday night for a zoning change request to allow for taller buildings.
