Detroit Foundation HotelDetroit, MI
Located on the northeast corner of Washington Boulevard and West Larned Street, the former Detroit Fire Department headquarters was originally built in 1929. Sachse Construction worked with McIntosh Poris to convert the building into a 100-guest room boutique hotel. The hotel also includes a full bar and restaurant enclosed on the first floor.
Construction for the Detroit Foundation Hotel was unique in that two separate buildings were renovated and re-purposed into one hotel. When the team demolished the walls of each of the buildings to begin the blending process, they noticed that the two buildings were not level with each other. To correct this, the team raised the floor of one building, and relocated the site work of the new elevator. Sachse Construction’s team of dedicated professionals are experienced in handling unforeseen challenges, common among renovating historic buildings. They continued to deliver solutions throughout the construction process.
