1001 Woodward gets Makeover

Last I heard, crews were just starting to prepare the required buildings for demolition. The only building of any architectural merit being lost is the Freud Building; however, ground floor retail space is to be included in the plan. 1001 Woodward LLC has made the garage larger than the 468 spaces originally planned, which has pushed the height to 10-12 floors instead of eight. As for the condos planned, they will be in a great location, and are a good solution to the occupancy problem that the building is experiencing.

Crews put up fences around the block at about 3 PM this afternoon, so it looks like the demolition work will be starting next week.

I wonder how all the people who mill around in front of the Hughes and Hatcher building felt about being kicked out of their spot? I know one guy was arguing with the guys putting up the fence, lol.

The deck is supposed to have ground level space for stores and things. Also it's supposed to be structurally sound for an office building to be built on top of it. I don't think I have a problem with things getting demoed as long as there is a plan for the space.
