Krieger | Klatt Architects, of Royal Oak, will make a presentation of a development called "The Gateway" to the Downtown Development Authority when it meets Wednesday at 4 p.m. at City Hall.
Versa Development, CG Emerson Real Estate Group, and Farran Group want to build a 4-story medical/office building, apartments and a retail area on the vacant parcel at Interstate 696 and Main Street.
