Mid-housing, hotel development to break ground after COVID-19 delay

The Mid would have components for housing, hotels and retail.  Groundbreaking is now expected in the third quarter of 2022.

An ambitious housing and hotel development in Midtown Detroit known as The Mid is expected to break through later next year after pandemic-related delays.

The project would be built on a 3.8-acre vacant lot at 3750 Woodward, just north of the Whole Foods and the proposed SoMA development that includes a Target store.

Current plans for The Mid call for approximately 300 units of co-living space, a 225-room hotel, 80,000 square feet of retail space and a number of additional housing units to be determined.

Emery Matthews, one of the lead developers, told members of the project’s Neighborhood Advisory Board during a virtual meeting Monday night that The Mid will have two phases. The first phase was once planned as a hotel, he said, but as COVID-19 made it harder to get funding for hotels, it will instead be the co-living spaces.
