Whether it’s a side effect of the QLine development or the redevelopments in the Midtown/Cass Corridor area, one thing is for certain: Milwaukee Junction is getting some big investments. The neighborhood located just south of New Center and the North End has been a popping up more regularly over the past few years, thanks in part to the expansion of Bucharest Grill, new commercial space, a forthcoming Japanese Izakaya, and now (even more) residential space.
Per a release, Detroit-based company Terra Novus Development announced plans today to renovate a historic building at 433 E. Milwaukee Street. The 10,000-square-foot mixed-use property will feature both four lofts ranging from 900 to 2,500-square-feet, as well as commercial space. Future tenants headed to the building include a “Detroit styled whiskey bar.” Eater has reached out for more details regarding the project.
The new watering hole will join an already booming bar and distillery scene that’s drinks its fill of whiskey. Spots like Two James Spirits and Detroit City Distillery helped usher in a new era of homegrown whiskey in the Motor City, while Whiskey Parlor, Cornerstone Barrel House, and Townhouse Detroit trade in deep lists of the brown liquor. Stay tuned for more updates.
Update, 12/19, 6:12 p.m.: Reached by Eater a representative for Terra Novus declined to provide specifics on the whiskey bar, beyond that it will fill the former Edith’s Hideaway space at the corner of E. Milwaukee and Beaubien.
