While the final height has not yet been determined, Joe Guziewicz, vice president of construction for Gilbert's Bedrock LLC, confirmed that it will be taller than the 800 feet that was previously announced as the company looks to get "the most flexibility for how we use it and how we program it."



Designed by Hamilton Anderson Associates and SHoP Architects, the massive Hudson's Site mixed-use development broke ground in 2017 and occupies the long-vacant site of the iconic J.L. Hudson's department store in downtown Detroit—in its heydays, the world's tallest department store but ultimately demolished in 1998 after a long economic decline.
