The long-running rumor in Detroit's real estate community is coming closer to pass now that we know a Nike Inc. Community Store is in the works for a Dan Gilbert-owned building on Woodward Avenue.

The suburban Portland, Ore.-based sneaker and athletic wear company has submitted plans to the U.S. Green Building Council for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, or LEED, certification at 1261 Woodward Ave.

The LEED certification for interior design and construction is in progress, according to a listing on the USGBC website.

A different page on the USGBC website says the store would be about 19,500 square feet and it was registered for LEED certification in June.

We’ve been hearing for months that Nike has been planning a store in Detroit's central business district, particularly near the new John Varvatos store at Woodward and John R Street.

The 1261 Woodward building, formerly the F.W. Woolworth Co. building, has 6,700 square feet of retail space on the first floor, according to the listing on Gilbert’s Bedrock Real Estate Services LLC website.
