Cardinal Health Medical Supply Warehouse


6000 Rosa Parks Boulevard, Detroit, Michigan

1. Project overview

Henry Ford Health System (HFHS) was founded in 1915 by automotive pioneer Henry Ford. HFHS has grown into one of the nation's leading comprehensive, integrated health systems. In 2012, HFHS announced plans for a $500,000,000 expansion of their Detroit hospital campus, a new Community Health Park. They estimate the expansion will result in an additional $500,000,000 of private investment within the Community Health Park.

The announcement of the Community Health Park came with a second announcement regarding the first project within the planned development area. HFHS had chosen KIRCO as the developer of over 80 parcels of blighted former residential, commercial, and industrial land at the southern end of the proposed Health Park. The 19.51-acre site is located in Detroit, Michigan, and is bound by Marquette Street (north), Commonwealth Avenue (east), railroad tracks (south), and Rosa Parks Boulevard (west). This site was selected for the construction of a 275,000 square foot, state of the art, medical supply warehouse. The tenant of the building would be Cardinal Health, currently ranked 22 on the Fortune 500. The goal of this project was to kick-off the Community Health Park redevelopment, and make a significant impact in the neighborhood by removing blight and bringing new jobs and taxes to the community.

The building was completed and Cardinal Health began occupying the building on May 15, 2015.
