Detroit Collision Works is the new hotel project currently under development near the Eastern Market in downtown Detroit. Founder/ CEO Shel Kimen has been using Kickstarter to initially fund a pop-up protoype to trial the idea. First Container, in collaboration with Eastern Market Corporation and the Detroit Collaborative Design Center will be made up of two containers close to the future site. One of the two containers will host temporary spaces for retailers and local entrepreneurs to test their business ideas and the second will be aimed at locals and visitors who can get involved with activities and public events available such as discussions on the future of community development, sustainable design and food production.
