DEGC, acting on behalf of the City of Detroit, is soliciting the submission of Proposals from qualified teams to renovate and develop a historically significant former industrial structure known as the Stone Soap Building located in the East Riverfront District.

The development site is 0.76 acres and contains a building composed of three contiguous structures totaling 88,369 square feet.
 
This Request for Proposals and Qualifications (RFP/Q) is intended to retain a qualified developer for the acquisition and development of the Stone Soap building into a signature project that demonstrates leadership in design and development for the East Riverfront.
