State placemaking campaign puts spotlight on Marine City Public Beach

The state's placemaking initiative, Public Spaces Community Places, is turning its attention to the St. Clair River community of Marine City.

The initiative, a partnership between the Michigan Economic Development Corporation and the Michigan State Housing Development Authority, will award a $10,000 matching grant to fund improvements to the city's public beach if organizers are able to successfully raise $10,000 through a crowdfunding campaign.

The Marine City Public Beach is located in downtown Marine City, on the shores of the St. Clair River. The crowdfunding campaign is being held on the Michigan-based website Patronicity. Organizers have until June 20 to raise $10,000. If successfully reached, the total jumps to $20,000.

The money raised will be used for a number of improvements that include restroom renovations, additional beach sand, privacy fence, signage, buoys, security, playground equipment and supplies. It will be deposited into an earmarked account in the Marine City Parks and Recreation Department and used only for beach improvements. Any money left unused this year will be used next year.

"Marine City Public Beach is one-of-a-kind in this area," says Marine City Mayor Raymond Skotarczyk. :It is a wonderful source of fun and recreation for thousands of people each year. Up to now it has been maintained and made available at no charge to the public. This fundraiser will help make some much-needed improvements while keeping the access free to the public. I know that it will be a great success especially when people realize that Patronicity will match their donation dollars. I’d like to thank Gary Kohs and Laura Scaccia (of the Mariner Theater) for organizing this and encourage everyone to donate generously."

The crowdfunding campaign is an all-or-nothing campaign, meaning that if $10,000 is not raised by June 20, no funds will be awarded to the Marine City Public Beach improvement efforts.

The status of the fundraiser can be viewed on Patronicity.

Regional development news round-up for May

It's been another busy month for development news in metropolitan Detroit. Let's catch up on some more development stories from the past four weeks.

A Planners Gathering is being held in the settlement of Lakeville in Addison Township, which is located in northeast Oakland County. The event will focus on the civic benefits of historic preservation. Bruce Pearson, Addison Township Supervisor, will show how preservation techniques have improved life in the township while Todd Elder, owner of the Lakeville Mill, will demonstrate his own restoration methods that saved the mill. The event is being held at the Celtic Knot in Leonard on Friday, June 3. Tickets are available online.

Michigan's Main Streets are set to see a boost as the state readjusts its historic downtown and commercial district revitalization efforts. The newly rebranded Main Street America, formerly Main Street Network, will adopt a more preservation-focused philosophy in its attempts to reinvigorate downtown areas across southeastern Michigan and throughout the state.

Cosworth, the high-performance automotive engineering and manufacturing company based in Northampton, UK, is setting up shop in Shelby Township. At least 50 jobs will be created as Cosworth establishes its U.S. presence, producing high-performance cylinder heads for an automotive original equipment manufacturer (OEM). Michigan raced past Indiana in winning the company over, offering a $2.1 million Michigan Business Development Program performance-based loan in the process. If Cosworth reaches certain job creation milestones, the loan becomes a grant.

The Townsend Hotel has begun the last phase of its multi-year overhaul with the closing of the Corner. The 2,000 sq. ft. bar is being redeveloped as a private dining and meeting space. Since renovations began in 2012, the well-renowned Birmingham hotel has refreshed all of its 150 guest rooms, meeting facilities, public areas, and the Rugby Grille restaurant.

Rochester company deconstructs, not demolishes, old homes

As is often the case for successful entrepreneurs, one business begets another. That's certainly true for Robert Bloomingdale, whose recently established Rochester Salvage & Supply most likely wouldn't have happened had it not been for his other booming business, Bloomingdale Construction.

Rochester Salvage & Supply specializes in reclaiming, repurposing, and reusing materials from deconstructed older houses. Bloomingdale Construction builds a lot of its houses in downtown Rochester, a town with plenty of old houses and virtually no empty lots, says Bloomingdale. That's where he got the idea for Rochester Salvage & Supply.

"We demolish a lot of older homes in the process of building new ones," says Bloomingdale. "I always felt bad about sending old, vintage materials to landfills. Now, we save what we can."

Rather than demolish the old houses, Rochester Salvage & Supply now methodically deconstructs them. Materials like shingles and siding are sent to be recycleda cost the company pays out of its pocket. Others, like salvaged lumber, are repurposed into furniture, and other items that can either be sold individually or built into the new homes constructed by Bloomingdale.

Bloomingdale contends that deconstructing a house costs more than twice as much as demolishing one. And paying for materials to be recycled isn't making him any money. But the reclaimed materials trend is a hot one right nowsomething Bloomingdale credits to HGTV shows and other media as having fosteredand he has been astonished by the feedback and interest he has received since announcing the formation of Rochester Salvage & Supply this past April.

For now, Bloomingdale says his goal is "to not lose money." It's a month into the new business and he's learning as he goesafter all, his business has been building homes, not deconstructing them. But he already has plans to expand Rochester Salvage & Supply from its base in Rochester to begin deconstructing homes in Pontiac. The business has had prior involvement in that community, donating materials to the Habitat for Humanity ReStore there and working with the Power Company Kids Club.

Rochester Salvage and Supply operates out of a warehouse on South Street in Rochester, though Bloomingdale prefers customers interested in reclaimed materials make inquiries via email. Reach him at robert@bloomingdaleconstruction.com.

Walsh College celebrates $15 million expansion

Walsh College is celebrating the grand opening of a $15 million, 55,000 sq. ft. addition to its main campus in Troy this Friday, May 20. 
 
A two-story Success Center is the academic focus of the investment made by the business college. Renovations to existing facilities are also among the improvements. They include more classroom spaces and improved electrical access for smartphones, tablets, and laptops.

The addition is designed to enhance students' business communication skills, including written communication, public speaking, and executive presence. On the second floor, a modern open office-style area with collaborative spaces and meeting rooms will be available.

The new features are many. There is a Mother's Room for nursing students and staff, a Veteran's Room for active duty and veteran students, and ten new student study rooms. There's a new space for Student Services, an Alumni Room, and a Student Organizations Room. A 40-seat auditorium, Cyber Lab, and Testing Center have also been added. The new Fireside Student Lounge and a cafe offer students places to unwind.

"Students and employers expect high quality from our programs. These outstanding facilities reflect that quality," Stephanie Bergeron, president and CEO Walsh College, says in a statement. "We look forward to building our legacy for excellence well into our second century."

The improvements occurred on Walsh College's main campus in Troy, in which it occupies 30 acres at the intersection of Livernois and E. Wattles roads. The business college was founded by accountant Mervyn Walsh in Detroit in 1922, where it operated out of the Capitol Theatre Building—which is now the home of the Detroit Opera House. Walsh College left Detroit for Troy in 1970, where it has been located ever since. The school now has additional locations in Novi, Clinton Township, and Port Huron.

Effort to green up urban Macomb County takes root

Macomb County residents with an affinity for trees, shade and the outdoors have reason to celebrate as officials announce a new program designed to increase tree canopy coverage south of the Clinton River.

The program, Green Macomb Urban Forestry Partnership, is an initiative of the Macomb County Department of Planning & Economic Development and is made possible through a grant from the U.S. Forestry Service and the Michigan Department of Natural Resources Forestry Division.  ITC Holdings provided matching money to secure the grant.

According to officials, the initiative focuses on communities south of the Clinton River because they have the highest population density in the county while simultaneously having the lowest tree canopy coverage. Warren, Sterling Heights, and Clinton Township, some of Michigan's largest cities, are locatedat least in partsouth of the Clinton River. The targeted area also has some of the county's oldest infrastructure and its sub-watersheds are heavily impacted by urbanization.

Plans for the affected area include the systematic implementation of a coordinated green infrastructure strategy to improve economic vitality, quality of life and ecological integrity in the affected areas. Green infrastructure uses plants and soil to help filter and purify stormwater runoff while creating habitat and greenspace.

Meanwhile, the city of Utica, itself nestled along the Clinton River, is hoping to invigorate its commercial and industrial districts through the creation of a five-year master plan. Area business owners are invited to attend a public input workshop from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, May 12 at the Utica Public Library.

Proposals include extending downtown, zoning ordinance reviews and continued focus on recreation and water assets.  Says John Paul Rea, director of the Macomb County Department of Planning & Economic Development, "Public input is essential for developing a realistic and achievable plan for the future of one of Macomb County's most historic and vibrant cities."

Vacant land fair to be held in Pontiac

A vacant land fair titled "Lots of Possibilities" is being held in the city of Pontiac Saturday, May 7. More than 900 vacant parcels are for sale and will be on display at Wisner Memorial Stadium beginning at 11:00 a.m. The city lots measure approximately 50 by 100 feet and are priced at $250 or less per parcel.

The vacant land fair will have an urban farming flair, and city officials are expecting a big turnout. The city has partnered with UrbanFarming.org, a national advocacy group dedicated to the proliferation of urban farms. That organization, along with goat farmers, honey bee keepers, and a number of sponsors, will be on hand to help prospective buyers give vision to the vacant lots.

Dayne Thomas, Chair of the Pontiac Planning Commission, says the purpose of the vacant land fair is to eradicate blight. The planning commission wants to see the land utilized. He says any proposal will be considered and, if deemed viable, will most likely be approved. An application and questionnaire process will help weed out speculators and others seeking to purchase lots and not do anything with them.

"We have the questionnaires because we don't want people who will take the lots and sit on them with no plans to clean them up," says Thomas. "It's not perfect, but it's a sort of checks and balances to provide accountability to the system."

The first vacant land fair was held last summer, without the urban farming theme. That experience led Thomas to realize that the land fairs couldn't be one-and-done events. He says the city will hold the fairs each spring, summer, and fall until they're no longer deemed necessary.

Lots of Possibilities starts at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 7. Wisner Memorial Stadium is located at 441 Cesar Chavez Ave. in Pontiac.

Artist opens Atom Art gallery in Ferndale

Atom Art, the new gallery that just opened in Ferndale, has quite the origin tale. And for an art gallery in Ferndale, that's as it should be. Atom Kaiser -- his real name bestowed on him by a hippie mother, he says -- moved around a lot as a kid, spending time in places like Jamaica and Michigan. It wouldn't be the last time he returned to Michigan.

As a younger man, Kaiser was interested in neurology and planned to pursue studies in the field. But a head injury altered his path -- and perhaps the way his brain worked, he theorizes. Kaiser says that the injury made him think in a more visual way and, after struggling with the side effects of his prescribed medications, found himself drawn to painting.

After two degrees in the visual arts, Kaiser moved to Barcelona, establishing himself in the art world there before a stay in Mexico City was cut short by his dad falling ill, which drew Kaiser back to Michigan. That's when he decided to open Atom Art in Ferndale.

Kaiser wants Atom Art to be different than the higher-end art galleries around metro Detroit. He wants to be more inclusive, offering more group shows and opportunities for less-established artists. He says he plans to keep the space sparse, leaving room for classes and whatever else artists may need.

"I'm an artist that has an art gallery, not a gallery owner collecting pieces," says Kaiser. "There's a difference."

Following a soft opening on February 6, Atom Art officially opened its doors April 16. Kaiser says he's been flattered by the warm reception he's received, from the artist community to the Ferndale Chamber of Commerce.

Atom Art is located at 522 E. Nine Mile Rd. in Ferndale, sharing the building with Go Comedy! Improv. It's generally open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., but hours change for special events.

Rochester College park project seeks artist submissions

Area artists are being encouraged to submit their proposals for a 900-sq. ft. mural to be included in a public space redevelopment project on the campus of Rochester College. The winning artist will receive a cash prize of $2,500 in addition to the opportunity to create the mural.

The mural will be painted within Lake Norcentra Park on the north side of the Rochester College campus. The college is currently revamping the park located at an intersection of the Clinton River and Clinton River Trail. In addition to the mural, which will encompass two walls facing the trail, improvements to the park include bike parking and a bike repair station, boat and fishing access and improved public space and programming.

"Thousands of people will pass by the mural every day during the warm weather months, and this is our way of welcoming them in and inviting the public to make Lake Norcentra Park their own," BT Irwin, director of the Lake Norcentra Park Project, says in a statement. "It's a meeting place for the entire Rochester community to enjoy and reconnect."

Mural submissions are open from April 18 to May 27 and are accepted at www.rochestermural.org. A 13-person jury will choose three finalists in June. The winner of the mural contest will then be decided by a public vote. The mural is set to debut in September 2016.

Organizers say that the mural should represent the Rochester region. They're also looking for vibrant and colorful designs that will catch the eyes of passersby.

Lake Norcentra Park is 14 acres and includes bluffs, wetlands, and woodlands throughout its landscape. Rochester College recently partnered with Chief Financial Credit Union to improve the park, which is open to the public. It is located at 800 W. Avon Rd. in Rochester Hills.

Regional development news round-up for April

It's been another busy month for development news in metropolitan Detroit. Let's catch up on some more development stories from the past four weeks.

The city of Pontiac celebrated a big groundbreaking this month as construction begins on the redevelopment of the historic Strand theater. Re-branded as the Flagstar Strand Theatre of the Performing Arts, the 895-seat theater will open in fall 2016 after $20 million in renovations. The downtown Pontiac venue will be host to live music, theater, and comedy, organizers say. The Strand opened in 1921 and has been closed since the mid-1990s.

"[My brother] Brent and I looked at the Flagstar Strand Theatre project as an opportunity to continue the forward progress of the reinvention of the city of Pontiac, particularly downtown Pontiac," Kyle Westberg, co-owner and general contractor of the building, says in a statement. "We are blessed to be put in a position to reopen this historic facility, provide new jobs to the community and kickstart economic development. Downtown Pontiac is destined to be the arts, culture and entertainment district of Oakland County and we feel the Flagstar Strand Theatre will be the anchor of this district."

Center Line received the largest single investment in the city's history, this according to City Manager Dennis Champine. Sodecia USA, a global Tier 1 automotive supplier, was considering leaving Center Line for a new location before the city offered it an Industrial Facilities Tax Exemption, persuading the company to stay and establish its North American headquarters there. Portions of the current Center Line campus will be demolished to make way for a 66,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility and a 27,600 sq. ft. three-story administrative office tower.

Cranbrook Academy of Art was ranked the sixth highest fine art graduate program by the U.S. News & World Report.

Local brick-and-mortar Italian restaurant chain establishes itself in the food truck game

A well-established metro Detroit restaurant chain is flipping the script on the traditional food truck narrative. For quite a few years now, the food truck has been celebrated as a cheaper way for young restauranteurs to establish a customer base, to bring their food to the public. Food trucks have also been painted as a nuisance to the traditional brick-and-mortar restaurants that spend the time and money necessary to establish roots in a neighborhood.

The Andiamo Restaurant Group is proving that maybe you can have your cannoli and eat it, too. Last year, the popular chain of Italian restaurants debuted the Andiamo Food Truck, adding the mobile kitchen to its nine restaurants and a pastry shop found around southeastern Michigan. The food truck will return to its stops around metro Detroit again this year.

Fans of Andiamo will be able to order many of their same favorites. Items like the calamari, deep fried cheese ravioli, and steak sandwiches range anywhere from $5 to $11 and are prepared fresh in the truck. Dominic Vicari, Andiamo Director of Operations, says the truck is fully equipped with kitchen equipment that includes pasta cookers, fryers, and a panini press.

"People are very surprised that the food we produce on the Andiamo Food Truck tastes just as it does when they order it in our restaurants," says Vicari. "They are able to order some of their favorite dishes."

In addition to parking the food truck in public places, the restaurant chain is also making it available for hire at private events. A customizable menu is offered for such occasions.

The Andiamo Food Truck can be found at major events and festivals throughout metro Detroit this summer. Email foodtruck@andiamoitalia.com for more booking information.

Craft Salon opens in downtown Royal Oak

A new salon has opened in Royal Oak and its co-founders are working hard to ensure that it caters to everyone. Punks and lawyers, blacks and whites, men and women -- all are welcome customers, the co-founders say.

Craft Salon opened March 22, offering the gamut of hair, makeup, and facial waxing services. The owners, Sarah Markel and Natasha Vranic, have been in the industry for about a decade each, meeting at another Royal Oak salon along the way. Markel says that Vranic had been wanting to open her own salon for a while before Markel agreed to join the venture. It's a natural partnership, she says.

"We collaborated on some projects and we found that we work together really well. And we fight even better," says Markel. "It's productive. We fight like sisters. We balance each other out."

The pair characterizes their own style as gothy -- "like Beetlejuice at a cocktail party," says Vranic. But she and Markel employ people with a wide range of styles, ensuring something for everyone. They challenge themselves and their staff to be well-rounded and versatile.

"We're always educating ourselves, pushing ourselves to be better and stay up on all the latest trends," says Vranic. "We're creative people capable of any type of clientele."

Craft Salon is located in an old 1920s farmhouse, just blocks from Main Street. The building was a salon in a previous incarnation, though some things had to be fixed. Markel says that the fact that the business is in an old house makes everything immediately comfortable, with lots of windows and the warmth of wood floors.

Markel and Vranic encourage appointments to be made via text message, which can be made at (248) 990-4169.

Craft Salon is located at 522 E. 11 Mile Rd. in Royal Oak. It is open 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. every Tuesday, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday.

International building supply company to build new headquarters on Schoolcraft College campus

Masco Corporation, the home improvement and building product company, is relocating its corporate headquarters from one part of Wayne County to another. The company will build a 91,220 sq. ft. development on the campus of Schoolcraft College in Livonia, leaving its previous home in Taylor.

The development group, Livonia-based Schostak Brothers & Company, teamed with Schoolcraft College to secure the deal. The new headquarters has a spring 2017 target opening.

The new building will be significantly smaller than the company's current building, a 415,606 sq. ft. facility on Van Born Road. Jeffrey Schostak, Schostak Brothers & Company vice president and director of development, says that what the new facility loses in square footage, it makes up for in state-of-the-art improvements.

"We are proud to partner with Schoolcraft to transition Masco to this innovative and fantastic facility for their daily operations," Schostak said in a statement. "The design will provide functional space for Masco’s employees and will be aligned with their commitment to excellence."

While it's unclear what will happen to Masco's current headquarters in Taylor, the Michigan Economic Development Corporation has taken on the project, working with Masco to find a suitable reuse of the 415,606 sq. ft. facility.

Masco is known for designing, manufacturing, and distributing home improvement and building products, ranging from paint to spas, bath and shower fixtures to cabinets. Some of its most well-known brands include Behr, Hansgrohe, Milgard, and many others. Its CEO and president, Keith Allman, characterizes the move to a new headquarters as an important step, one that will create a more collaborative environment for Masco employees.

The new Masco Corporation headquarters will open in the spring of 2017 on the main campus of Schoolcraft College, which is located on the west side of I-275 between Six and Seven Mile roads in Livonia.

Grosse Pointe whiskey bar adds live music to its repertoire

A new bar and restaurant is becoming an even newer music venue as the recently-opened The Whiskey Six in Grosse Pointe is adding live music to its offerings. The Whiskey Six opened in December 2015 and will launch its foray into the local music scene with a concert by Ash Can Van Gogh on March 31.

Dubbed Thursday Night Live, the weekly concert series will feature smaller ensembles and groups playing a range of genres, from rock to jazz, folk to pop. The first group to take part, Ash Can Van Gogh, is an acoustic Americana band that first began playing Detroit clubs three decades ago. RJ Spangler, a jazz musician, and the Thrift Store Cowboys, a country outfit, are slated to play future dates.

The restaurant is planning on booking larger ensembles for music on Saturday nights, as well.

"When you go out for an evening on the town, nothing can compare to the energy and the memories created by live music," says Roselie Posselius, manager of live entertainment for The Whiskey Six. "We want to recreate a special time and place, when people can experience live music at their favorite top spot."

The Whiskey Six first debuted near the end of 2015, serving upscale pub food on a menu that includes items like Lamb Sliders, Bourbon Prawns, and Wild Mushroom pizza. The bar focuses on Michigan craft beers and spirits as well as its large stock of different whiskeys. An original 1928 Studebaker sits over the space, the famous six-cylinder car popular during Prohibition from which the restaurant draws its name.

Ash Can Van Gogh kicks off Thursday Night Live on Thursday, March 31, at 8 p.m. No cover.

The Whiskey Six is located at 646 St. Clair Ave. in Grosse Pointe.

Approval granted for 100-unit luxury apartments development in downtown Milford

This Monday, the Milford Village Council approved a $22-million, high-end development on the former Iverson's Lumber site. DevMar Development has been given the go-ahead to build its two luxury loft apartment buildings on the E. Huron Street property.

Named the District Lofts, the luxury apartment community divvies 100 luxury apartment units across two four-story buildings. The site is the former Iverson's Lumber property located at 300 E. Huron St. Four acres and a block east of Main Street, the site has been vacant for some time.

In addition to 13 penthouse apartment units at 1,350 square feet each, the development mostly consists of one- and two-bedroom loft-style apartment units ranging anywhere from 850 to 1,350 square feet. Units rent at prices from $1,300 to $2,000 per month.

DevMar Development principal Mark DeMaria praises downtown Milford in a statement to the press.

"Milford has a vibrant downtown with a wide selection of entertainment, restaurants and shops," DeMaria says. "When I look for a location to develop, I look for walkable communities with a nice mix of retail, entertainment, outdoor recreation, and great dining experiences; add to that great events like Milford Memories and the concerts in the park that will give my residents a way to immediately become a part of their new town. Milford has all of that with access to five parks, walking trails, rivers and streams. It is a beautiful town."

City officials like Milford Downtown Development Authority executive director Ann Barnette agree, saying that the development will improve downtown Milford's walkability and sense of place.

DeMaria also says that typical tenants in his developments tend to be young professionals and empty nesters. DevMar Development has already begun a similar development in downtown Plymouth called the Starkweather Lofts.

District Lofts will be located at 300 E. Huron St. in downtown Milford.
