Detroit Events Center, District Detroit Construction Streaming Live


A live streaming webcam has been launched that will allow people to see real-time progress being made on construction of The District Detroit and the new Detroit Events Center.   

“With mass excavation complete and concrete being poured on site right now, we are on track to open the new Detroit arena for the 2017 NHL season,”  says Steve Marquardt, vice president of Olympia Development of Michigan.” As we continue our aggressive schedule on the arena and accompanying developments, more than $115 million in contracts have been awarded to Detroit-based businesses.” 

The camera will provide continuous live streaming video of the 12-acre events center construction site 24 hours, seven days a week. The events center, which is part of the larger District Detroit project, includes the new Red Wings arena, as well as surrounding office and retail buildings, the Via, and a public piazza. District Detroit will connect downtown to Midtown, and is slated to open in 2017. 

In addition to the live stream, other new features include regular time-lapse and daily archives of images that provide the ability to look back on any selected date from the start of excavation.
