And another one. Just in from Crain's. New hotel in SOMA.

"Construction on the planned West Elm hotel in Detroit is expected to begin next year at a new site on Woodward Avenue and be complete by 2020.

The boutique hotel by the Brooklyn-based furniture brand is the latest to come into clearer view, following others scattered throughout the greater downtown area.

Detroit-based developer The Roxbury Group has entered into an agreement to develop the approximately 130-room hotel at Woodward and Eliot Street on the approximately 7-acre development site known as South of Mack Avenue, or SOMA, across from Whole Foods. David Di Rita, principal of Roxbury Group, said the hotel market in and around downtown "remains very underserved on various product types down the chain."
