Demos now starting, clearing way for big suburban projects
Demolition of the buildings that once housed Lutz Financial Services, Roche Bobois and Frank’s Shoe Service in the swank downtown Birmingham are gone from the 1 acre-plus site, said Victor Saroki, president of Birmingham-based Saroki Architecture, which is working on the project to bring the RH — formerly Restoration Hardware — flagship store to town. The new building, slated to be more than 50,000 square feet and four stories, is expected to be completed by the fourth quarter next year, Saroki said.
Indianapolis-based Renascent Inc. is the demo contractor.
Another is the expected razing of the Main Art Theatre in downtown Royal Oak, the site of which would be turned into a new mixed-use building with office and residential space above commercial space by an affiliate of Bloomfield Township-based developer A.F. Jonna Development LLC.
And of course, there is the bevy of blighted Detroit buildings Mayor Mike Duggan has targeted for demolition, as my former colleague Annalise Frank and I reported in March.
