The Development at Cadillac Square will feature 1.5 million square feet of mixed-use space anchored by the revival of the iconic National Theatre. Already a vibrant residential district, the development will further amplify Detroit’s growing entertainment, hospitality, dining and retail scene.

The History

For decades, Detroit’s oldest theater district thrived on Monroe Street, tucked between what is now Greektown and Campus Martius Park. The two-block strip was once dotted with century-old theatres built between 1852 and 1911, and anchored by today’s last surviving structure, the National Theatre.

Custom designed by prolific and world-renowned Detroit architect Albert Kahn, the National Theatre first opened in 1911, where it operated as a vaudeville house, played early iterations of motion pictures and hosted burlesque shows for the next 80 years.

Bedrock will honor the Theatre’s historic legacy with plans to reimagine its façade as the gateway to a modern, world-class entertainment venue. This venue will anchor the Development at Cadillac Square and provide ample opportunities for break out performances for years to come.

Monroe Street Midway

For the past two years, the development site has hosted the Monroe Street Midway – a lively downtown destination for locals and visitors to enjoy free, family-friendly entertainment in the heart of the city. Operated in conjunction with partners across the state, including Emagine Entertainment, RollerCade, Come Play Detroit, Library Street Collective and the Gilbert Family Foundation, the Midway has introduced more than 150,000 of our neighbors to some of the core’s firsts, including a roller rink and mini golf, a drive-in movie theater, winter markets, bumper cars and more.

Returning for its final season, the Midway has helped to pave the way for showcasing what’s possible, and the demand for, live downtown entertainment.
