Detroit’s vacant 1926 Wurlitzer building to become boutique hotel

Repurposing Detroit‘s long-vacant Wurlitzer Building into a boutique hotel took another step forward Wednesday with approval of a tax incentive.

HM Ventures Group 6, a New York investment entity, plans to turn the 1926 Wurlitzer Building into a multi-use hotel with a street-level café and bar, second-floor restaurant and meeting space, and a roof-level lounge with direct access from the street.

Total investment is estimated to be more than $21 million. The project is expected to create about 60 construction jobs and then 60 full-time jobs once the hotel opens, according to documents from the city’s Brownfield Redevelopment Authority, which approved the tax incentive.
