In June of 2019 we reported on the groundbreaking of a new parking structure coming to Detroit’s Corktown area. The new 450-space, mixed-use, parking structure was built to accommodate the newly renovated Corktown Lofts building also known as ‘The Assembly’. The Assembly (a Bedrock Property) is a mixed-use space consisting of residential, office, and retail space that combined, totals 160,000 square feet in Detroit’s Corktown neighborhood.
This reformed four-story commercial building was originally built in 1913 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2017. This is Bedrock Detroit’s first residential project in Corktown. According to Bedrock, the total development cost was $39 million and the project received $6 million in Historic Tax Credits.
As of today, the parking structure is complete and in-use and The Assembly has officially opened with tenants signing extensive leases! The Assembly Garage features 450 spaces and 8,500 square feet of ground level retail space. The façade includes a panelized façade screen with aluminum tube framing and vertical fins with perforated metal panel backing over the precast concrete superstructure.
Rich & Associates provided parking consulting, architectural and engineering design services for this new parking structure while Bedrock’s internal architectural team developed the architectural façade for the new structure.
The Assembly Garage was recently featured on several news stations across Michigan highlighting Bedrock’s collaboration with Ford Motor Company and Bosch USA testing the latest in automated valet parking. Check out the video below!
