The newest ground-up hotel in Detroit at the time of construction, is located in Harmonie Park, close to the home of the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park and the Detroit Lions at Ford Field. This ten-story, limited service hotel has 198 rooms, a full bar and restaurant, meeting rooms, indoor pool and a two-story glass atrium rotunda. This was a signature project in Detroit because it had been almost 10 years since any new hotel facilities had been built. Not only is it the first new hotel in Detroit in years, it is also the first project in Southeastern Michigan to use an innovative new structural brick curtain wall system. This new system allows for the elimination of shelf angles at each floor which carry the typical brick facade, as the entire weight of the facade is transferred through the brick directly to the reinforced mat foundation. Omitting the shelf angles amounted to a substantial savings over typical brick facade construction. While this cost saving system has been used successfully on projects out of state, Kraemer Design Group was the first to bring this technology to the Detroit area.
