Detroit Commercial Real Estate Buzz About Kahn-Fisher Buildings

August 2nd, 2015 Comments off

Fisher Building Downtown Detroit

The metro Detroit commercial real estate market is abuzz about the possible sale and conversion of portions of the Fisher Building and the Albert Kahn Building.

Potential Bidders for Fisher and Kahn Buildings

High interest in the properties exists from experienced real estate development firms from metro Detroit and the East and West coasts. Small percentages of the properties could be converted into residential living space and, as identified by Crain’s Detroit Business, possible bidders for the properties may include:

  • Fernando Palazuelo – owner of the 3.5 million square foot Packard plant.
  • Dan Gilbert – Founder of Quicken Loans, Rock Ventures, and Bedrock Real Estate Services.
  • HFZ Capital Group – NYC based real estate investment and development company.
  • Roxbury Group – Detroit based real estate development firm.
  • Princeton Enterprises – Bloomfield Township based firm headed by Matt Lester.
  • GHC Development – NYC based real estate development firm.

Converting Space Into Livable Space

There are several opinions about the relative cost for converting the square footage of these buildings into livable space. Some estimates range between $100 a square foot to as high as $200 a square foot.

Joe Barbat, who’s firm Barbat Holdings, LLC, is re-developing a building attached to the Hotel St. Regis (64,000 square feet) estimates that redevelopment of either building could cost between $100 and $150 per square foot.

Demand for Livable Space Increases

With the New Center Area near these properties demand continues to increase for nearby housing from those who attend the College for Creative Studies, are employed in the local workforce at Henry Ford Health System, and in office complexes at New Center One and Cadillac Place.

Real Estate Development Heats Up…Outside of Detroit

The real estate development of unique properties is not just occurring in downtown Detroit. Properties around metro Detroit and in cities like Ann Arbor are being developed into livable space. One example is The Residence at Montgomery House which plans on being a boutique condominium right in the cultural center of downtown Ann Arbor.
