DETROIT, Michigan — The city of Detroit continues its quest to revitalize the infrastructure of the downtown area. The “Temple Detroit” a $72 million real estate project is set to open in June 2020.
The Temple will be designed by award-winning architecture firm McIntosh Poris Associates alongside Kravitz Design, Lenny Kravitz’ interior design company based in New York.
It will feature 100 hotel rooms, 70 residential units and retail space.
“Detroit is a special place with a fascinating history,” says Kravitz. “My connection with the city has been through the decades of music created there. In recent years, I have also become interested in Detroit as a city being reborn. It’s very satisfying as a result for myself and the Kravitz Design team to offer our energy and ideas to the success of the Temple Hotel, as well as Detroit. We are excited to collaborate with both Christos Moisides and my good friend Sam Nazarian and his team at sbe on this project.”
The $72 million project will be at 640 Temple Street, near the Masonic Temple. The developers will complete the 190,000 square foot 1920’s Albert Kahn designed building.
The former Standard Accident Insurance Co. building will be redeveloped into a $72 million hotel called Temple Detroit. @mcintoshporis and entertainer Lenny Kravitz's interior design firm will transform the building that is set to open in June 2020. https://t.co/ouFesN6uo9
