Luminarias add special light to SW Detroit

DETROIT: The Southwest Detroit Business Association (SDBA) is partnering with local restaurants to create 15 full-sized, custom-built dining structures at participating restaurants from January through February 2021, beginning with Armando’s Mexican Restaurant located at 4242 W. Vernor Hwy.

Designed to mimic the look of a traditional Mexican luminaria, the full-size, outdoor enclosures will each hold up to six people for a night out of dining and drinks at restaurants. Each luminaria is specially built to endure Michigan winters and are heated to provide patrons with a dining experience that is COVID-19 health and safety compliant. 


SDBA will work with participating restaurants to construct the five-sided, metal and plexiglass luminarias that are each 8 ft. tall with an 8 ft. diameter. The luminarias will light up in a variety of colors and can be customized for special occasions.  

"The Luminarias of Southwest Detroit" program was made possible through a $50,000 grant from The Hudson Webber Foundation, along with pro bono design, engineering and architectural services valued at $15,000 provided by AptumBuild Solutions LLC. Diseños Ornamental Iron accommodated an expedited timeline for manufacturing and reduced its fees to help the SDBA meet budget goals for the program.   

Participating restaurants are required to make a $1,000 financial commitment for each luminaria, with the majority of the costs covered within the scope of the program.
