A $10.5 million mixed-use student housing and retail center known as the Union at Midtown held a ceremonial ribbon-cutting Tuesday in Detroit. Students will start moving in this weekend, said Tim Hanson, a spokesman for the building's owner and developer, Urban Campus Community of Detroit. The building near the Wayne State University campus has 81 units for 140 students. Urban Partnership Bank, Tim Hortons and Byblos Cafe and Grill plan to start building out their locations in the development's 6,000 square feet of retail space, Hanson said. Harvey Hollins, Wayne State’s vice president for government and community affairs, is shown in a photo participating in the ribbon-cutting ceremony.
