Filled with tons of character and architectural beauty, the subject property is an approximately 37,670-square-foot former school building adjacent to Ford Motor Company’s mobility campus in the Corktown neighborhood of Detroit, which boasts some of the strongest real estate rental and sales rates in the city. The site is positioned just one block from the new Southwest Greenway, which offers protected pedestrian and bike pathways, connecting to the future Ralph C. Wilson Centennial Park. The property will be attractive to a number of potential users and developers who want to put down roots in Detroit’s most exciting neighborhood. Appealing qualities include the substantial parking capacity and flexible floor plan of the building, which allows for several demisable options and uses. It’s a perfect adaptive reuse project with solid bones, the potential for an open floor plan, and additional land zoned B4.
