The federal office building is 10-stories above grade with a basement and has approximately 484,000 rentable square feet in addition to a 10-story parking garage with approximately 850 spaces. GSA will be renovating the building to extend its useful life and consolidate federal agencies from leased locations within Detroit. Renovation of the building systems includes improvements to the HVAC systems that will result in energy savings, repairs to the passenger and freight elevators, replacement of the roof, repairs to the building’s windows and facade, upgrades to the fire alarm and sprinkler systems, repairs to the plumbing system and public restrooms, improvements to the electrical infrastructure, and repairs to the parking garage and site. The project has an estimated total cost of approximately $74.9 million.
