Core City
2,750 Square Feet Built In 1918 / 2018

Built in 1918 and with photos dating back to 1929, The Pie building, named for its shape, was home to a variety of uses: a restaurant, bank, and wholesale stovetop shop. With strong bones but an awkward layout, the building, which was vacant and run-down at the time of purchase, required a creative approach. Prince Concepts brought the building back to life by opening the floor-plan and installing new systems. The once-dark interior is penetrated by natural light, while retaining the integrity and warmth of its original materials — wood, brick and concrete. Comprised of three large commercial spaces, The Pie is home to Prince Concepts, an advertising agency and a custom jewelry designer and manufacturer.


2,750 SF of second floor creative office space located at the intersection of Grand River Avenue and 16th Street with entrances from Core City Park. The space features hardwood floors, tall open ceilings, exposed brick walls, kitchen, and restroom. The building is adjacent to Core City Park, Ocre Bakery, as well as other creative spaces and retailers and is part of Prince Concepts (Phil Kafka’s) larger Core City developments.
