Hotel/Condo Conversion Proposed for 3 Detention Facilities

New, 14 comments


When shopping for a new apartment, do you crave the comfort and security only a concrete box can provide? Look no further than the Andrew C. Baird Detention Facility, which Dan Gilbert hopes to convert into condos as part of his proposed $500M entertainment district. The building is one of four buildings Gilbert will inherit should he succeed in acquiring Wayne County's prison-themed property bundle, which includes three detention facilities and one Brutalist high-rise.
