Wagner Place Construction Informative Sessions

Wagner Place Construction
Informative Sessions

March 22
9:00 AM and 6:00 PM
Dearborn Area Chamber of Commerce
22100 Michigan Avenue

Two blocks of Downtown West Dearborn on Michigan Avenue will transform from a once deteriorated and vacant area to a vibrant place for consumers, residents and employees thanks to the investment of the City of Dearborn, West Dearborn Downtown Development Authority, Dearborn Brownfield Redevelopment Authority, Michigan Economic Development Corporation and Ford Motor Land Development Corporation.

Ford Land will be building two structures totaling 150,000 square feet with retail/restaurant uses on the first floor and 600 Ford employees on the upper two floors, while rehabilitating the historic Wagner Hotel with this project. West Village Drive will be designed in a way to allow for festivals and open public gathering spaces. The City will add a 373-space parking deck at the southwest corner of West Village Drive and Monroe Street to support the project and the district. Once the deck is completed, there will be 800 public spaces available to this quadrant of the downtown district. Wagner Place is expected to be complete and fully occupied in the summer of 2018.

Construction begins on Wagner Place and the parking deck the first week of April 2017. Join us for one of two informative sessions on Wednesday, March 22 at 9:00 AM and 6:00 PM located at the Dearborn Area Chamber of Commerce, 22100 Michigan Avenue, to find out more about the construction details and what to expect during construction.

Individuals with disabilities who require special accommodations, auxiliary aids, or service to attend should contact (313) 943-2363 (TDD). Reasonable advance notice is required.
