333 Midland - The project begins

333 Midland - The project begins

We fell in love with the idae of setting up shop in Detroit after a visit in September 2012. We Met Bob Sestok, a prominent Cass Corridor artist since the 1960s. I asked him if he knew of any industrial propert in Detroit and he suggested 333 Midland, Highland Park.
 
Highland Park is a small enclave within the Detroit City, equally distressed. 333 Midland is in an industrisl precinct surrounded by mostly decaying housing or waste land. despite this, Midland is a thiving road with active businesses, 333 being almost the last to be snapped up for development.
 
This year, Bob has made significant progress turning the property into a viable center for artists - new roofs, electric, water and gas supply to the Annex, ready for our first intrepid tenants. I'm looking forward to setting up my own workshop around the middle of 2014.
