Wayne County approves new $533 million jail complex in Detroit
Wayne County approved Thursday plans to build a $533 million criminal justice complex at East Warren Avenue near the I-75 service drive.
The Wayne County Building Authority approved the project Wednesday.
Approval means Dan Gilbert’s Rock Ventures has the go-ahead to build the jail complex to replace the long-scrapped “fail jail” site on Gratiot Avenue. The county will invest $380 million and Rock will cover the rest.
