71 Garfield

Garfield Manor at 71 Garfield has been converted into combined housing and studio space for artists. It will contain 20 residential units and 20 studios.  The complex is green.  Geothermal, solar and wind and water retention systems will reduce net energy consumption and the waste stream to near zero.

*Note* Please ignore the color differences in the brick. I'm not sure how much the difference is from clean up or from my exposure.

Awesome work on a building that would have been bulldozed otherwise.

Crack cocaine has decimated Detroit. This is a great project to show the city coming back from near death.

No gas line running to the building?
Heated by geothermal? This is the way to go.

Great job to the builders!
