The briefly vacant Ben & Jerry's suite near Campus Martius is gearing up for a new tenant. A contractor inside the building confirms that Something Sweet Detroit Water Ice Factory will open around July 28 selling a sorbet-like dessert called "water ice" or Italian ice. Similar to the shuttered Ben & Jerry's, Detroit Water Ice will operate as a non-profit. Eater has reached out to the owner for further details. [EaterWire]
