Corktown LoftsDetroit, MI
Sachse Construction is currently managing the renovation of Corktown Lofts, a 4-story, mixed-use facility in Detroit, MI. The adaptive resuse and historic renovation encompasses apartment buildout on the fourth and fifth floors of the building, with the first through third floors being tenant white box space.
As the building is a former dry goods storage facility, the building’s structure has fragile areas that require reinforcing and special attention. Additionally, the building is being renovated under historic codes, so modern improvements must be approved or modified to meet the historic requirements. This specific challenge has strengthened the project team’s communication and collaboration as adhering to historic codes requires a full coordination effort from the owner, architect, and Sachse teams.
At its completion the project will provide housing for Detroiters and commercial tenants with the bonus of featuring an incredible view of the downtown city scape.
