Facts

  • Because of a defective facade system, water leaked into the building's apartments causing mold and other damage almost from the opening of the building.
  • Wayne State University decided in 2016 to demolish the building, deeming it less expensive than reconstruction. The building was officially closed in May 2019, demolition began in June 2019, and was completed by August 2019.
  • The site of the former apartments was used to expand adjacent Keast Commons, a grassy recreational space.
