The new $450 million arena for the Detroit Red Wings will be built by a consortium of three construction companies that was submitted for approval today by the city’s Downtown Development Authority.
Newly formed Barton Malow-Hunt-White, organized as the project’s general contractor, was submitted today to the DDA by arena developer Olympia Development of Michigan, which issued a statement today.
The authority is scheduled to vote on the submission when it meets at 3 p.m. Wednesday.
The three companies are Southfield-based BartonMalow Co., Detroit-based White Construction and Indianapolis-based Hunt Construction Group.
Details about the consortium’s structure and information about financing were not disclosed.
Barton Malow and White were involved in construction of Comerica Park and Ford Field. White recently was hired as a subcontractor for the $137 million private-public M-1 Rail streetcar project along Woodward Avenue.
