CENTER REVIEW 108 • SHOPPING CENTER BUSINESS • May 2016 A s the city of Detroit's downtown real estate revitalization contin- ues, headline projects serve as waypoints on the path to progress. The latest development to make headlines is The Scott at Brush Park, a $65 million, five-story mixed-use development that includes 199 high-end residences and approximately 15,000-square-feet of first- floor retail and restaurant space. The Scott is scheduled to open later this year. Birmingham, Michigan-based Broder & Sachse Real Estate Services Inc. and Southfield, Michigan-based Woodborn Partners LLC are developing the project, which is located on 2.4-acres of land on Woodward Ave. and Erskine Street. The Scott is just blocks away from Dan Gilbert's $70-million, 400-unit housing de- velopment complex in Brush Park. Along with projects like The Albert, which par- layed a historic renovation of the 12-sto- ry Griswold Building in Detroit's Capitol Heights neighborhood into 127 luxury apartment units and ground floor retail space, The Scott is part of a larger resi- dential resurgence in downtown Detroit. Broder & Sachse CEO Richard Brod- er says that The Scott will be a standout feature on the city's expanding residential landscape. "The Scott would be a landmark project in any city,' he explains, "but it's a particu- larly exciting addition for Detroit because it offers the kind of lifestyle experience you simply cannot find anywhere else downtown." The lifestyle elements Broder is refer- ring to include a wide array of amenities and conveniences for residents at The Scott. This includes a second-floor out- door pool deck and terrace with a four-sea- son lounge, spa, hot tub and fireplaces, a 24-hour health and fitness center, a pet grooming station, a second-floor resident kitchen and lounge area, a private reading room and library, a conference center, a secure bike storage facility, and com- munity green space — including a "bark park" for pets. Residents will be able to park their vehicles in a 300-space private underground parking deck, and can take advantage of 24/7 concierge service that includes luxuries like secure package pick- up, door-to-door dry cleaning pickup and delivery service. In a unique fashion, The Scott will also feature a gallery-style dis- play area with rotating art installations from local artists. "If that list seems extensive, that is ex- actly the point," says Broder. "We want The Scott to stand out when it comes to the full range of experiences and extra features available for residents and guests — the ultimate in luxurious urban living." The Scott will even have a full-time "life- style curator" on staff tasked with plan- ning and coordinating social gatherings and special events for residents. "Perhaps the most enticing amenity of all, says Broder, is The Scott's location — specifically its proximity to a wide range of commercial, cultural, sports and enter- tainment venues and attractions." "It's going to feel to residents as if they Mixed-Use Fits The Market The Scott at Brush Park is a fve-story mixed-use development that focuses on the market at hand.
