L.S. Brinker is pleased to be working with the Bagley Development Group and acting as Construction Manager on the restoration of the historic United Artists Building, soon to become The Residences at 150 Bagley.
Located within the National Park Services Grand Circus Park Historic District, the 100-year old, 18-story building designed by famed architect, C. Howard Crane was originally completed and opened to the public in 1928. An office building and theatre throughout most of its existence, the building has stood mostly vacant since the 1970’s until it was shuttered completely in the late 80’s, having since fallen deeply into disrepair. Although in serious decline at the time, the building was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 1983.
150 Bagley’s future was reassured in 2017 when the Ilitch Group announced that the building had been acquired by Olympia Development and was slated for restoration. When the project is completed, The Residences at 150 Bagley will feature 148 apartment units, with 20% allocated as affordable housing. The project will include the restoration of the original marble floors and walls in the lobby, and corridors throughout the building, preserving its history while offering its residences a host of modern amenities. In addition to 1- and 2-bedroom units up to 1,300 square feet, the restoration will also activate approximately 10,000 square feet of retail and dining space on the ground floor.
