The site, located on Gratiot between St. Aubin and the Dequindre Cut, is about four acres, Cummings, who founded The Platform with Dietrich Knoer, said Thursday night. The restaurant, which at one point served as many as 300,000 meals per year, closed in 1998, according to a 2011 Crain’s article.

Cummings said a redevelopment is planned to include retail along the Gratiot frontage and multifamily residential units along the Dequindre Cut frontage. However, specifics about the development plan have not yet been determined.

“We are starting to work on site plans for that site, which is a key parcel, a gateway parcel to the city,” he said.
