The next steps in the restoration of the Women’s City Club building and Detroit Life Building were approved recently by the Detroit Historic District Commission. Proposed façade improvements were designed to closely match original architectural details such as windows, store fronts and signage from the early 1900s when the structures were built.

Detroit-based Kraemer Design Group is the leading architect for restoration of the former Women’s City Club, 2110 Park Ave. and the Detroit Life Building, 2210 Park Ave., which are both part of the Park Avenue Historic District. Detroit-based Brinker-Christman has been selected as General Contractor.

The Detroit Life Building, a 10-story historic office structure built in 1922, would be transformed into approximately 32,000 square feet of office space and 6,000 square feet of street-level retail space.

The six-story Women’s City Club, built in 1924, would be renovated into approximately 47,000 square feet of office space and 10,000 square feet of street-level retail space.
