The transformation of this 20th century Renaissance Revival building in downtown Detroit, which once housed the famous Wurlitzer Company, into a hotel will breathe new life into a blighted landmark that has remained vacant for several decades.

A comprehensive historic restoration project will support the redevelopment for a new hotel which will feature a carefully curated food, beverage, and retail program, including one of Detroit’s only rooftop bars with views into Comerica Park. New windows along the North facade of the building will accommodate the planned 106-guest rooms and renovation improvements will support guest expectations and life safety requirements. The project is being funded with Historic Preservation Tax Credits and, as such, meets the Secretary of Interiors Rehabilitation Standards as coordinated with the Michigan State Historic Preservation Office.
