Do you mean the building that houses The Blend coffee shop, a sundries/newsstand and Luxe Cuisine? That's the Lafayette Building isn't it?

The building aka parking garage west of Cobo which is right across the street from the main entrance has a superbowl shop. BTW, it is a ripoff. I'm pretty sure it is a reddish brick building.

Cripes, people. The Lafayette Building? The one on Lafayette? That's been boarded up since 1990?

Anyhoo, Sparty is asking about the modern-looking structure on the northeast corner of Washington Blvd and Congress. It houses an architectural firm, then a steel company that went broke. It's been vacant for about two years.

Well there is like 3 superbowl stores in that one block area. I thought it was pretty funny when I saw that. But now that I think about it, that is the building with the blend in it. I am almost positive.

How many Super Bowl shops are set up around town??

CZ's Sports is still set up next to Cheli's Chili in GCP, and they opened up another shop in the Madden Building. I talked to the owner awhile back and he said the locations are temp. but he HOPES that the GCP may become permanent...Being right next to the two stadiums he has seen a lot of businesses on gamedays...

Also, the Greektown staple, Sports Mania is sporting all Super Bowl apparel. That place is great, since it is open LATE!

A temp. shop set up in the Millender Center. The guy said that he runs all of the major bowl games as well (Fiesta, Rose Bowl, etc.) and has been impressed by the turnout in the MC.

The only other building down that way has to be the 333 West Fort Street. It's the only modern structure with 3-levels of parking in it's base and ground floor retail. That could have been described much more easily unless you're talking about yet another building.

It's the 333 building. Last I heard, it's owned by Cullen Meathe...the owner of MetroCars. I know it was used by the Mayor in his first election campaign...and then by his sister in some not-for-profit entity (Mayor's Time, maybe?) It's a really cool little modern building inside. Lots of natural lighting.

::banging head on table::

I'm pretty sure that the 333 West Fort building is on Fort Street. From the title of this thread, we can eliminate that building from consideration.

Sparty is talking about the building on the northwest corner of Washington Blvd. and Congress. It's been empty for about two years, but used to house a steel company called the Broad Group. It's attached to the ancient parking deck that has the big Jeep banner hanging from it right now.

So what you are saying Itsjeff is that if the building in question is located at Washington and Congress it cannot be the building on Fort. Very interesting perspective you have. Now I have a question can this building in question be located on Woodward?

I'll back you up on that. SH&G was a big contributer to an arts project I was involved with during that time frame.

Also one of the receptionists was a good friend of mine and I regularly picked her up there to meet for lunch.

Nevermind that, we need to straighten out the matter of which building was SH&G's office. My brother was an architect there ~1972-1976. It's on Fort, has a glass facade, and where the corners of the glass panes meet is a silver X-shaped piece attaching the glass to the structure. If this is the one Swingline is talking about, then he is correct.

the 333 w.fort building is also known as the shg building. it is an existing structure with a new glass facade and interiors. smith hinchman and grylls completely stripped it and renovated it sometime in the late 60's early 70's.

around 1987, mr. madden approached sh&g to purchase their buidling. part of the deal was a honey of a 10 year lease at his new 150 w. jefferson building. they accepted and sold. his intentions were to continue building office structures behind 150 w.jefferson and expand the financial district. this, of course, never materialized.

sh&g ran out their lease at the "big pink building" and ultimately moved into the gaurdian building. they decided it was silly to be the architect of a majority of detroit structures, but reside in one designed by somebody else. they still reside there today...

so, i find it very highly unlikely that sh&g moved into that building for a short time in between these scenarios. i also find it hard to believe due to the size of that building; they occupied an entire floor or two of the madden building, an entire four story structure, and recently downsized from 5 to 4 floors in the gaurdian building. i don't think they could all fit in that structure....

Et tu, RSA?

SHG was not in the 333 West Fort building. They were further up Fort, across the street from the Anchor Bar. 333 West Fort is most famous for housing The Rock and his former law firm.

I am positive I am not confusing 333 W. Fort and the building at Washington and Congress. There was definitely a big "SH&G" sign on that brown building across from Cobo. Also, SH&G did not move into 150 W. Jefferson right away. The first tenant was a law firm in the summer of 1989 (the building was not yet done when they moved in) that moved from 211 W. Fort (then, the Comerica Building) and SH&G did not move into 150 for quite some time thereafter. As a matter of fact, I don't remember them being in 150 as late as fall 1990, although I do remember them eventually moving in.

RSA is referring to 455 W. Fort, not 333 W. Fort.

This is starting not to be fun.

Can we disagree on the location of Emily Gail's shop location, next?

whoops. thanx guys; i shoulda thought harder about that address.

i might be a little off on the dates, i'm trying to remember from the firm history when i worked there a few years ago. i was kinda working backwards; going from when they moved into the gaurdian bldg. i could also be wrong: they might've bought a smaller engineering co., absorbed it, and put their name on that building as well as having offices elsewhere. could be another reason for them moving, and it's not like they haven't done it before.

This is probably the first thread that Sparty started where he wasn't try to stir up schitt, and the thread still turns bitter.

Great job, Sparty.

LOL! Whatever the address is, I was referring to the one across from the Anchor Bar.

This is what I've gathered so far:

1. Smith, Hynchman, and Grylls was in a bunch of buildings.

and...

2. A Super Bowl store is in a building too...

BTW - I am considered by many to be "not that dumb"

"Llyn,
I don't believe that we have met. Will you marry me?"

Possibly.

My second proposal! Well the first wasn't really a proposal, but there was hope. However, as explained on a previous occassion, there are two things you should be aware of:

(1) Llyn is a man.
(2) Llyn is not gay.

Other than that, send a picture and bio. What kind of movies do you like? Pets? Do you floss? I like long walks in the summer rain...

SH&G moved from the building on Fort to the Madden building, and then moved to the Guardian Bldg. (They are now called SmithGroup by the way.) I think they may have had a satellite office in the building on Washington for a little while, but I'm pretty sure you couldn't fit all or even most of SH&G into that building.

Llyn,
My Bad, I meant to say that we should get beers and hit a football game.

Sorry!

I think the building in the arial photo with the red arrow was the offices of an architect called Rossetti Associates back in the 70's. It was a modern looking orange brick builing.
