The University of Michigan is engaging in a public/private partnership with Related Companies and Bedrock to create the Detroit Center for Innovation. The 14-acre site will be anchored by a $300 million research and education center that will be operated by the university. Designed by KPF, the 190,000-sf facility will accommodate advanced degree programs in innovative disciplines such as data science, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, mobility, and financial technology. Construction is expected to begin in 2021. The first phase of development will also include collaboration and business incubation spaces, a hotel, a conference center, and residential units.
