The best thing (besides the actually renovation) is that Higgins no longer owns the building, Motown Construction does.

Wrong Bob. A group of investors owns the building where Higgins is a majority stake holder.

a prime location like that, and you're going to have three crappy studio apartments per floor? half of the spaces in the building will be 625sf or less? please tell me that's not final. 5 units per floor is a much better plan, imho.

i say this because i want one, and i'm going to need a bedroom and a view of comerica park please.

If they do this right, this will be a very very good addition to Downtown. Grand Cicus is starting to get really hot, now all we need are some bistro like eateries on the aprk, the kind where you can sit out on the patio and drink lemonade. You think a Starbucks or Caribou would be all over that shit.

The plan that "Udmphikapbob" refers to with the studio's is only the seventh floor. We selectively did not post the main floor plans. There will be a great mix of units, some that are two story, some that are even two story with a mezzanine. Here is a preview of the facade planned for the connected former Church's Chicken. BK

Didn't anybody else notice the pdf on the Madison Lenox? Or is this study only news to me!

So Kraemer, seems that since you all have come along things have actually been happening in the city, so with that I have much respect for you. Since you all are involved with the Broderick does that mean that the project will actually get up and running as well, or is this merely another soundbite coming from Higgins?

Detroit_stylin - I feel that the Broderick Tower will happen.

Motown Construction Inc. has a very strong team of professionals and a new set of investors. This has taken a long time.

As you can imagine, financing a project of this type is extremely complex.

I understand that. I guess with the major stakeholder's history with this building it leaves room for a little doubt yanno?

But I do hope that it does go throught becuase after all it is one of the higher profile buildings in the gateway to the CBD...

Bob - glad to hear that the 7th isn't a typical floor. My wife and I are looking forward to living there someday.

Wishing I had taken your studio class when I had the chance...

Detroit_stylin - no renderings for the Lafayette. We do plan on a complete restoration of the original facade (if possible). There is evidence that behind the black slate panels, the limestone still exists. BK

Check out this image:

Now I was wondering that myself since during sometime within thelast few months I did notice some of the underlyingmaterials were uncovered. I was wondering what that may have looked like. So it is something that can be (hopefully) replicated/ restored then...

Since we are talking about the Lafayette...

I'v always thought it might be cool to somehow put windows on the wall facing Campus Martius.

Looking at the aerial I'm almost certain that the elevators and other service equipment is in the part of the building that is at the cross of the V. It is not as simple as cutting some holes in those rooms.

What I'm thinking is maybe cantelevering an addition over the shorter building below it. Or restore and reconstruct all of the buildings from their to the corner...with additional floors above them.

I think the cantelever idea is probably the most feasible. I have to believe that views of CM will be worth enough to justify the expense.

(Maybe thats phase II.)

Stay tuned to www.brodericktower.com for information about leasing etc. in the future. The project is still in it's early stages.
JCBeal announced that the project will probably start toward the end of 2006 which is correct.

Motorcitymayor2026 - we have been in the Parker-Webb Building (400 Grand River) for six years. Prior to that we were in Harmonie Park.

Sabio007 - no pricing available from us for the kresgee (Now being called the Elliot Building). The building was originally the William Elliot Building. www.theelliottbuilding.com BK

Thanks for the heads up. I currently live in the Lofts at Woodward Center and I plan to stay there until the Elliot Building is ready. Looks like it is going to be nice when all is said and done.

Back to the Broderick Tower, going by the floor plan it looks like only one unit per floor will get the full view of Comerica Park, unit B.5 on the Seventh floor plan for example.

The other set of east-facing windows are in the stairwell, and the elevator takes up the rest of the wall. But oh what a view from that one east-side unit! :-) You'd be able to watch ballgames pretty easily, although a pair of binoculars wouldn't hurt. I'm sure those units will fetch a premium.

The rest of the view will not be half bad either, you will be looking out over Downtown. I know its not a sports stadium, but it still will not be a bad view anywhere.

Tunnel to the structure under Grand Circus Park, a la Kales Building perhaps?
