A new multi-use development is headed to Detroit, international hospitality group sbe announced Thursday.

The $72 million project will bring the "Temple Detroit" to the Cass Corridor on Temple Street near the Masonic Temple. The 8-story property will feature 100 hotel rooms and 70 residential units, as well as a restaurant and nightclub venues.

Lenny Kravitz' interior design company, Kravitz Design, alongside award-winning architecture firm McIntosh Poris Associates will design the project.

“Detroit is a special place with a fascinating history," said Kravitz. "My connection with the city has been through the decades of music created there. In recent years, I have also become interested in Detroit as a city being reborn. It's very satisfying for me, as a result, to work with Christos Moisides, who has a true love for Detroit and a passion for its success as a city. He has assembled a great team and I am pleased to be able to offer my energy and ideas to the success of the Temple Hotel, as well as Detroit. I am excited to collaborate with sbe on this project as I’ve enjoyed working with my good friend Sam Nazarian and his team in the past.”

Developers plan to complete the 190,000 square foot 1920's Albert Kahn designed building.
