A new restaurant building and park is situated along Grand River Avenue leading into the center of downtown Detroit. The urban revitalization project and new public space is being created to anchor the emerging neighborhood, spur economic development and provide a quality place for the community to be active in the city’s resurgent and vibrant downtown. Central to its modern geometry are strong cantilevered roof forms gesturing towards the historic Detroit G.A.R. building and the park’s elliptical lawn, and a grand stair leading to a roof deck on axis with the historic Detroit Book Tower Building. Connections to the park landscape are further created with a green roof, and sliding glass walls that provide a flexible floor plan and indoor/outdoor experiences that supports restaurant seating, a farmer’s market, musical performances and community meeting room. Restaurant vendor select finishes, furniture and floor design was completed by Saroki Architecture
