World-renowned Architects Select Winners of Downtown Detroit Hudson’s Site Competition.

– Detroiters Also Vote for Favorite Designs-

DETROIT, June 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Rock Ventures
LLC

 and Bedrock
Real Estate Services today announced the winners of Opportunity
Detroit’s international design competition which solicited ideas
for a potential signature project on the former Hudson’s Department
Store site in downtown Detroit. The three winning design ideas came from
Rome, Italy;
Kalamazoo, Michigan

; and
Southfield, Michigan

.

The nine-week competition was a free, open call for architects,
designers, planners, artists, and community members to present ideas for
innovative, creative, and inspired designs for the potential future use
of one of the city’s most iconic sites. The competition attracted
nearly 200 entries from architectural and design firms, as well as
individuals, from 23 states and 22 countries.

Entrants were asked to create compelling visions for a new urban
development on the vacant 92,421 square-foot site, bordered by Woodward
Avenue, Gratiot Avenue,
Grand River Avenue

 and Library Street in the
heart of downtown Detroit.

From residential to retail, to concert venues and offices, the
entries ran the gamut from a single story structure to a 1,000-foot high
skyscraper, as entrants let their imaginations run wild. Some of the
submissions pay homage to the original Hudson’s Department Store by
including its likeness in their design; one submission literally turned
the store upside down, another included a completely green, sustainable
and energy efficient building, and yet another included all
made-in-Michigan materials.

“The Hudson’s Department Store was once the
crown jewel

 of
downtown Detroit, and these interesting designs are displaying the
possibilities of what can certainly once again grace the skyline of
Detroit,” said Dan Gilbert, Chairman of Rock Ventures. “By
tapping into the talents of some of the most creative individuals from
around the globe, we have the opportunity to create a signature project
that captures the passion, grit and revival of our great American
city.”

Reed Kroloff, who led the competition to design the “High
Line” in
New York City
 see New York, city.


New York City

City (pop., 2000: 8,008,278), southeastern New York, at the mouth of the Hudson River. The largest city in the U.S.
 and is Director of the Cranbrook Academy of
Art and Art Museum near Detroit, served as the competition’s
advisor.

“The Hudson’s site represents a microcosm of
Detroit’s 20[sup.th] century muscle concentrated in and around one
significant site,” said Kroloff.

“Detroit was and still is ground-zero for innovation in so many
ways. For example, Hudson’s had one of the earliest Thanksgiving
Day Parades, and its designers created stunning store windows that were
among countless reasons Woodward Avenue was the place to shop and do
business in Detroit.”
