Billionaire developer Dan Gilbert’s Rock Ventures has made Wayne County an offer for the downtown site of the current unfinished jail where he wants to build a soccer stadium and entertainment district.

Rock Ventures is offering to build the county a new, “state-of-the-art, consolidated criminal justice center” that includes the construction of new adult and juvenile detention facilities (Divisions 1 and 2) and a new criminal courthouse (replacing the current Frank Murphy Hall of Justice). The proposal also calls for the transfer of the Gratiot Avenue site to Rock Ventures where it wants to build a $1-billion commercial development to host a Major League Soccer team.
