Reimagining Women’s City Club: Heather McClure, Project Manager
Published by: Ilitch Companies News Hub
Restoring historic buildings goes beyond preserving Detroit’s history; it creates jobs for Detroiters, it draws further investment to our community and it attracts visitors to the city. Olympia Development of Michigan, Detroit-based Brinker/Christman and Kraemer Design Group are reimagining the historic Women’s City Club building. Once completed, it will become a hub for small businesses and entrepreneurs, creating jobs and bringing increased density to the Park Avenue Historic District. Heather McClure, project manager for L.S. Brinker, helps lead the revitalization of the historic building, which opened in 1924 to give women a place to gather and network. For McClure, a woman in a male-dominated field, the significance of restoring a building meant to uplift women in Detroit is not lost on her.
