Detroit businessman Dan Gilbert appears close to closing another big deal in downtown Detroit.

Gilbert is in the final stages of a plan to redevelop the former Hudson's department store site on Woodward Avenue. 

Today, the Downtown Development Authority and Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan are expected to meet and vote on the plan which would allow for construction on the old site.

The site, which has an underground municipal parking garage, would be turned into a mixed-use development, according to a news release from the Detroit Economic Growth Corporation.

Hudson's closed its doors on that site in 1983 after 70 years. 

The meeting is scheduled to happen at 3 p.m.
