The comeback of downtown Detroit, led by the expansive District Detroit project under construction, was advanced this week with the opening of The Scott at Brush Park. The upscale, mixed-use development of Broder & Sachse Real Estate and Sachse Construction is located about eight blocks north of District Detroit on Woodward Avenue.
A project undertaken by the Ilitch family, owners of the Little Caesars pizza chain, District Detroit will consist of five “neighborhoods,” as well as a new arena to host the National Hockey League’s Detroit Red Wings.
The Scott contains 199 residential units and will house five retail and restaurant tenants. The Carter-Snell Skin Center is the first retail tenant to be named.
“We knew this was an ambitious undertaking when we started construction in the summer of 2015, but we felt the reward would outweigh the risks,” Sachse Construction CEO Todd Sachse said. “Downtown Detroit, and Brush Park in particular, has incredible traction right now in terms of development and revitalization efforts. We are proud to be pioneers in Brush Park and to have The Scott as one of our team’s great successes for 2016.”
