1344 Broadway, AKA Phillips or Broadway Exchange Building. It was built 1925-26. First off, anyone know who designed it? It seems so much like Kahn's Vinton and Kresge/Kales Buildings, but came more than a decade after those, and is much smaller. A recent detroitblog.org post which delved into this building did not address it's origins.

Apparantly it's owned by an investment group, and is in a neighborhood where loft conversions of buildings this size are moving swift. Any guesses as to how long before this abandoned building gets some attention? Anyone with any actual facts?

This would have been better in the already open thread.

Hmm you're right, sorry I missed that. Royce made some good points on that thread about how they need to secure some parking for potential residents.

I wonder if all those pervasive leaks that the detroitblog describes effects the Hub on the first floor.

I'm still hoping someone knows who designed this. Gistok? Patrick?
