Historic Lee Plaza to be sold; developers eye affordable, market-rate housing after renovation

A team of developers has secured a deal to purchase the long-vacant Lee Plaza on Detroit’s west side, once one of Detroit’s grandest luxury residences, and convert the building into a mix of market-rate and affordable housing, with construction anticipated to begin in 2021.

Pending approval from Detroit City Council, the City of Detroit will sell the City-owned building, empty since 1997, to a venture formed by the Roxbury Group and Ethos Development Partners, both of whom have led large-scale renovation projects in the city.
