Does anyone know what's going on at Burroughs and Cass across Borroughs from American Beauty Building behind the Burroughs Lofts (Jonna)? I saw construction crews there today and the windows were covered and it seemed there was some restoration going on

That is another part of the Tech Town project. WHen al is said and done, every building that you see from Baltimore down to 94 will either be a rehab or a new building. The building you are inquiring about will be Tech 3...

If you're talking about the building immediately to the west of the New Amsterdam Lofts on the southeast corner of Burroughs and Cass, then it's going to be a police station of some sort. I was in touch with Judy Jonna about the New Amsterdam Lofts and she said WSU Security was renovating it for their permanent home.

is that the building at 6050 Cass? -- if so, that was a Packard dealership, and the last (somewhat) intact "original era" (teens-twenties) Packard dealership building in the city.

Detroit_stylin and Rugbyman seem to be confident in their statements and are clearly talking about the same building....unless Detroit_stylin was confused by my description. I wonder which one it is
