The Shinola Hotel rises in Detroit

While plenty of construction is underway downtown right now, one block in particular has seen a big transformation in the last year. Anchored by 1400 Woodward, the Shinola Hotel will take up much of the block between Grand River and John R. Buildings have started taking shape along the back side of the block on Farmer Street (over surface parking lots), so we’re doing a quick check-in of the progress.
