Detroit's skyline is about to change forever.

The intrigue: The Hudson's site tower has made steady progress in recent months — the tower is visibly taller and the rest of the building looks more near-finished than ever.

  • The upper floors of the tower will be home to 90-100 residential units.
  • What was initially billed as the city and state's tallest skyscraper is now expected to be second behind the Renaissance Center (727 feet) and just taller than the Ally Detroit Center (619 feet).

Yes, but: At 685 feet tall, the top of the building's tower will offer some of the best views of the city.

What's next: The project that broke ground in 2017 and was originally set to open last year is expected to be complete in 2024.

  • A spokesperson for Bedrock did not answer questions about the current status of the project.
