This is how you convert a building to lofts!!!!

Fuck turning some boring warehouse into lofts, check this shit out.

 

 

This article is from a year ago, it is open for leasing now.

 

 

Considering what new police stations look like today, it's hard to believe that this amazing piece of architecture was originally built to be one. The same goes for new apartment buildings, which is why it's equally difficult to believe that the Grand River Station will soon be known as the Castle Lofts, meaning people will get to live in a building that looks like that. In fact, it could be you. Leasing is starting soon.

The Castle will offer units between one and four bedrooms, some with luxurious features like jacuzzi tubs and heated garage space. But, as the photos show, this isn't a maximum luxury/exclusive sort of building. It's surprisingly affordable, with prices between $550-$1,525/month including water and wi-fi service. The ground floor of each building is being offered as office space. Completed in 1901, Grand River Station was designed by much-loved Detroit architect Louis Kamper and is actually two buildings (the smaller one was originally a garage) connected by an arcade. According to Brittany Washington of the Detroit Legacy Group (which is managing the property), renovations began twenty years ago, though finishing touches are still being added to some of the units. Those interested in renting can visit Detroit Legacy Group's website to schedule a tour.

 

sorry about the small pictures, could not find any larger ones that it would let me lift from the website.

There's a lot of money to be made in Detroit.

Mediocre kitchen. Would be good if hipsters moved there. The influx of money would help Detroit. Detroit needs it. Phone Post 3.0

Stopped reading when I came to the word "Detroit."
