I am looking for the address of an old apartment building called The Abbey (or Abby) on Grand Boulevard or Grand River that my grandmother used to manage. My guess is it may not be there anymore, but thought maybe someone might know of it. The building was brick with 3 or more floors and old in the 1950's It also had a large open balcony that ran the length of the interior in a sort of semi-circle. I need the address for some estate paperwork that needs to be filled out. I appreciate any help at all.. thanks!!

BTW, it was spelled Abbey. There was also "The Abbey" at 524 E Adams.

I looked on Zillow, and that address is indeed a field. Do you know if the building burned down or was demolished? Just curious.... Thanks!
