David Whitney Building to undergo renovation, add hotel rooms

Eight years after reopening as a revitalized mixed-use development, the David Whitney Building in downtown Detroit will undergo a rebrand and expansion of its hotel space.

Detroit-based The Roxbury Group announced Wednesday with TreeFort Hospitality the renovation that will bring an Autograph Collection hotel to the site at One Park Avenue, as well as new food and beverage venues.

The project is expected to be complete by late 2023.

“In working with Marriott International and our management team at Azul Hospitality, we concluded that downtown Detroit was ready for the level of service and experience that an Autograph Collection hotel would bring — and of course there is simply no better place for that to happen than the David Whitney,” Stacy Fox, principal of The Roxbury Group, said in a statement Wednesday.
