Brush Park

As a city currently undergoing an urban and cultural rebirth, Detroit is at the forefront of innovative thinking on how cities rebuild and regenerate. LOHA’s design for four mixed-use buildings will form a key component of a catalytic new development in Detroit’s Brush Park neighborhood, the city’s largest residential project in decades. 
LOHA’s bold, distinctive buildings will become the cornerstones of this significant revitalization effort, incorporating housing, retail, dining, and various community amenities on an 8.4 acre site in historic Brush Park.
With sensitivity towards the historic buildings and low-slung character of the neighborhood, each of the buildings’ massing steps down midblock to the height of the adjacent buildings. By redistributing units along this strategy, LOHA’s solution introduces density to the neighborhood while valuing Brush Park’s architectural past. 
Inspired by Detroit’s urban palette, the four buildings are clad with the basic materials commonly found throughout the city – brick, wood and metal. Coupling a signature material with a unique form lends each building a singular design that contributes to the aesthetic diversity of the comprehensive Brush Park master plan.
