CLIENT: Woodward Apartments | LOCATION: Detroit, MI | YEAR: 2009-2014
The new ground-up Woodward Garden Apartment mixed-use building is the fourth phase of work in the development of the last blighted block on Woodward Avenue in Midtown Detroit. The contemporary designed building utilizes a highly efficient fiber cement panel rainscreen system. Extensive energy modeling was performed to understand the impact of nine different HVAC systems, weighing upfront costs against maintenance and consumption costs. The project includes 11,000-square-foot of ground floor retail and 61 market-rate one and two bedroom apartment units. Amenities include a private rooftop terrace, secured parking via a bridge to the nearby garage and private entrance from Woodward Avenue. The project was financed under the HUD 221(d) program.
