Just over half of the estimated 5,500 construction jobs being created by the Detroit Red Wings’ new arena project will go to Detroit residents under a plan approved Wednesday by Detroit’s Downtown Development Authority.
The DDA approved a recommendation from Olympia Development, the private entity of the Ilitch family that owns the Red Wings, to hire a joint-venture construction management team of three contractors: Barton Malow, Hunt Construction Group and White Construction.
