Former Detroit fire HQ being turned into hotel

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (AP) -- Plans have been announced to transform the old Detroit Fire Department headquarters into a 100-room upscale hotel.
 
Aparium Hotel Group said Wednesday it's undertaking a $28 million project to turn the 1929 fire building into The Foundation Hotel. It's scheduled to open late next year.
 
According to Aparium, the hotel will include a ground-floor restaurant in the former fire engine hall.
 
The property sits across the street from Cobo Center, a downtown convention hall that hosts the annual North American International Auto Show and other events.
 
Aparium CEO Mario Tricoci says his Chicago-based company "is honored to play a role in the important resurgence of Detroit."
