After sitting empty for seven years, a historic brick building facing Harmonie Park is on track for "extensive rehabilitation," reports Crain's. There's no definitive timeline yet, but the plan calls for the Michigan Chronicle to set up headquarters in the upper levels, while the lower storefront would be converted into a new restaurant space. County records show the building dates back to 1909. It's best known as the longtime home the Detroit Artist Market, which stayed from 1961-1996. A faded Kurt Novak mural is still visible on the southern wall.
