DEVELOPMENTS — Luxury brand Shinola is dipping its toe into the hospitality game with Bedrock Real Estate on a new hotel at 1400 Woodward in Detroit. Per a release, the new development will hit downtown in Fall 2018 with 130+ rooms as well as restaurants and bars created in partnership with New York-based NoHo Hospitality Group, known for highly successful stunners like The Library at the Public, Bar Primi, Locanda Verde, and beyond. While NoHo typically stays close to home, one of the group’s partners Josh Pickard grew up in metro Detroit and was compelled by the opportunity. Reached by Eater, NoHo was unable to provide further details on the projects. Stay tuned. [EaterWire]
