Along Michigan Avenue, far west of Slows and the center of Corktown, this former bank building was quietly bought last year and has been undergoing a transformation into one of the most crazy sick residences we've seen in Detroit in a long time. The building was purchased along with an empty lot and a vacant bar. Is West Corktown the new Corktown? The renovations have taken about a year and are finishing up now. The building was about 2,200 square feet as a bank, but with the addition of a loft it is now about 3,000 square feet.
