After KDG completed a comprehensive field investigation and conceptual plan for the six-story Hartz Building, located at 1529 Broadway in Detroit, the building owner decided to undertake the complete rehabilitation of this historic structure. KDG proceeded with a design for the building that was both contemporary but also respectful to the nature of the 100-year-old building. The mixed-use program included the Detroit Beer Co. brewpub in the basement, first and second floors, loft-office on floors three through five, and a luxury loft apartment on the sixth floor. KDG also designed a new storefront to replace a 1950’s era remodel, to be more in keeping with the existing building and streetscape. In addition to providing architectural and interior design services for the Hartz Building, KDG prepared all the necessary applications for listing the building on the National Register of Historic places as well as for Federal Historic Tax Credits.
