Monroe Blocks

32 Monroe St.

Across from Campus Martius Park, the site at 32 Monroe St. consists of the two blocks known as the Theater District from 1852 to 1911. The National Theater vaudeville house – designed by architect Albert Kahn and built in 1911 – is the only structure still standing at the space, renamed the Monroe Blocks when purchased by Bedrock in 2016. Since 2020, the real-estate company has been utilizing the leveled location to host the Monroe Street Drive-In movie theater in the winter and the Monroe Street Midway outdoor sports-and-entertainment complex in the summer. Plans are in place for the plot of land to be transformed into a tower of offices, residences, restaurants and retailers.
