Lebowsky Center


The Owosso Community Players, at the Lebowsky Center, have a rich history

that carries on the legacy of Joseph Lebowsky who opened The Capitol

Theater in 1926. Reopening in 2014 and continuing to rebound and grow after a devastating fire in 2007. At the same time, features are incorporated into the design and

building efforts to support a sustainable concept.

35 Oakes St


Located in the heart of Grand Rapids’ entertainment district, Blue35 is an innovative

space designed to foster collaboration, inspiration, and results. The neighborhood is in close proximity to Grid 70, in a highly walkable and features nearby coffee shops, restaurants, and other downtown businesses.

Blue35 is home to companies large and small, from solopreneurs in the coworking space

to tenants who’s offices feature full-floor build-outs.

Woodward Station


The project consists of two main buildings—the former Owosso Casket Company

(now restored and housing Target Industries, a manufacturer of promotional

materials), and Woodard Station. Woodard Station, once home to Woodard

Wrought Iron Furniture, is now a multi-use facility with 48 loft apartments; 36

student housing units home to about 130 Baker College of Owosso students

Lofts on Ludington


Built in 1900 for the Richter Brewing Company, the building located at 1615

Ludington Street is known to many as the historic Delta Building and is one of

only five historic brewery buildings still remaining in the entire state. The greenest

building project is the rehabilitation of an existing structure. The renovation of

historic buildings rescues and preserves the city without destroying it, turning grand monuments of the past into grand residences of the future.

Lafayette Lofts


The historic Pontiac Sears Department Store, built in 1929, has a prevalent

and everlasting memory to the citizens of Pontiac. The renovation of the

80,000-square-foot structure, located in the city’s Commercial Historic District,

is the largest construction investment in downtown Pontiac in approximately

30 years.

Hamtramck Recycling


Hamtramck Recycling LLC is a family owned green recycling business located in

Hamtramck, Michigan. In 2012, Hamtramck Recycling encountered increased demand

from local manufacturers interested in recycling their waste, rather than depositing it

in landfills. To accommodate the increased demand and increase capacity, Hamtramck

sought to purchase and renovate an old waste-transfer building.



The 920 Cherry Street project was a part of a comprehensive redevelopment of a

three-acre site located at the intersection of Cherry Street, SE and Cherry Drive SE in

the City of Grand Rapids. The redevelopment plan consisted of the development and

construction of 37 for sale housing units, 5,000 square feet of commercial space and the redevelopment of the historic DA Blodgett Home into the new headquarters for

the Inner City Christian Federation.



THE BOOK CADILLAC HOTEL, a downtown Detroit landmark, was rehabilitated after

decades of vacancy and neglect for use as a 453-room Westin Hotel, with 64 luxury

condominiums on the upper floors and restaurants and retail at street level. The severely deteriorated exterior required extensive structural repairs, masonry and terracotta restoration, as well as a complete restoration of the building’s signature copper roof ziggurats. The $200 million mixed-use project was completed in October 2008.



After sitting idle for more than three decades, the Pere Marquette R.R. Depot became

the bustling center of activity that it was over a century ago. The restoration project of

this registered National Historical Place was made possible through a cooperative effort

of the Great Lakes Foundation and the city of Bay City. Now completed, the beautifully

restored depot displays many of its original features and serves as the central location

for several agencies as a resource information center for citizens and tourists on the greater Bay City area.



The building includes a few tributes to the old building, a vacant former bicycle factory which burned to the ground in 2007. The development represents the beginning of further investments along Front Avenue that will create a highly walkable urban area

along the western bank of the Grand River. To that end, the project included extensive landscaping and other streetscape features that serves as a model for future developments.



This project provided the needed stimulus

for further development south of Fulton Street along the west bank of the Grand River.

The building includes space for various outreach services to local and state businesses, including incubator services for small businesses, conferencing, executive level training, community outreach, food service and other related services. Through these organizations over 3,000 minority owned, veteran owned and female owned businesses have received consulting services.



The project, at the corner of Cherry St. SE and Sheldon Avenue S.E., brings Cherry Street Health Services, Touchstone Innovaré

and Proaction Behavioral Health Alliance together under one roof, creating what proponents say is a new national model for

integrated healthcare. The two-story building provides 80,000 square feet for patient

care, with a two-level underground parking ramp immediately below.
