DETROIT (AP) - Renovations are starting on a building that will become a new boutique hotel in downtown Detroit.

Officials from Shinola and Dan Gilbert’s Bedrock real estate company gathered Tuesday at the future home of the Shinola Hotel.

It’s scheduled to open next year.

The eight-floor hotel will have 130 rooms and 16,000 square feet of retail space. The building will feature Detroit-inspired design.

Gilbert founded Detroit-based Quicken Loans and owns the NBA’s Cleveland Cavaliers. Detroit-based Shinola makes handcrafted wristwatches, bikes and other items.
