DETROIT—A joint venture that includes developers Jim Jenkins and Chris Jackson announced Wednesday that it will construct a $30 million medical office building at the corner of Mack and Woodward avenue in Midtown.
Queen Lillian Development is building the 75,000-sq.-ft., five-story facility. The partnership said in a statement Wednesday that a retail tenant, a medical practice and a dental practice have expressed interest in locating in the site, which will include a dedicated 280-car parking garage.
“The reason this site was chosen is because we recognized a need for class-A office space in Midtown,” said Jackson. “We envision these projects as the start of many to come.”
Over the last 15 years, Jenkins and Jackson have developed and or built some of the most high profile projects in the city of Detroit. In addition to the WSU building, those include Greektown Casino, Cass Technical High School, Westin Book Cadillac, Presbyterian Village, Martin Luther King Jr., High School and Ford Field.
