Bedrock, a Detroit real-estate developer operating more than 100 properties throughout the city, and Raeden, a digital infrastructure platform provider specializing in enabling technology deployments across real estate portfolios, announced a partnership today to bring the first independent “carrier hotel” to downtown Detroit.

“The introduction and added value of the carrier hotel is a significant milestone as we continue to position Detroit as one of the most connected and technologically advanced cities in the United States,” says Michael Osment, chief technology officer at Bedrock.

“This is the first in a series of steps by Bedrock to strategically activate local technology assets to bring a faster, more efficient, and readily available networking platform to the Detroit market.”

Located within Bedrock’s 615 West Lafayette Blvd. property, the Detroit carrier hotel will begin operations this month and will centralize internet connectivity and technology services while making efficient use of existing fiber assets.

The effort by Raeden and Bedrock will directly connect the West Lafayette location with Bedrock’s Detroit portfolio, creating an environment where internet technology can be accessed more rapidly.

Instead of each building requiring individual Internet and technology installations, centralization will enable access to varying services, decreasing deployment timelines, and lowering costs. The result will enable Bedrock tenants the ability to access faster and more resilient internet-centric services while enabling expanded internet access throughout Detroit.

“Through the development of the carrier hotel and future integration between Bedrock’s portfolio and Raeden’s services, we believe Detroit will become one of the most connected cities in the United States,” says Kari Schrader, CEO of Raeden.

Over the next 12 months, Bedrock and Raeden will continue to collaborate on additional technological investments including activating existing data center assets and exploration of opportunities to improve services within the Detroit market.

These investments are targeted at increasing existing network resources and capacities, while reducing costs and overall service efficiency.
