MORTON HOUSE

Recommended Posts

A cleaning crew is working on the building and they've been filing a dumpster (parked on Ionia) since last Thursday. The lobby looks wonderful.

From the GRBJ article:

 

"Hassberger said work will begin when they hear from the U.S. Department of Interior regarding their application for federal incentives."

They should convert the basement bank vault into a market rate studio.  Doesn't that look cozy?

 

they could market it to a hobbit, or maybe a suburbanite who likes the idea of city living, but is worried about safety/home invasion.

Site.Lab.

 

It looks like Rockford Construction is holding off on renovations to the lobby, old restaurant, and bank spaces for SiTE: LAB Artprize exibit:  http://new.site-lab.org/

 

It certainly gives Rockford the ability to have an "open house" so potential tenants can get a look at what could be done with the space.

Yes, we (SiTE:LAB) are using the building for Artprize this year. We will have 13 artists installing works in the basement, main floor and second floor - if anyone is interested in volunteering to help - we would love it!

 

Some pre artists install shots that we have taken in the building. 
 
And an article that came out today in the press. 
 

Rockford Construction is holding off on those sections as they work on other aspects of the building. They are building out a model unit on the first floor next to the main entrance.

I can't wait to get a sneak peak during Art Prize. It looks like it has some great old bones.
