On June 9, the Southwest Detroit community marked yet another transformational development project with the grand opening celebration of the LA SED Building, located on W. Vernor at Scotten directly across the street from Clark Park. The project consists of 6,500 square feet of retail space and 12 residential units — a mix of affordable and market rate.
Bob O’Brien, director of partnership development for Southwest Solutions, says the importance of this redevelopment project, which once housed the notorious Carnival Bar, cannot be overstated. “The transition of this building from a center of crime, drugs and violence to desirable commercial and residential space,” he says, “is another step in transforming this community into a great place to live.”
Southwest Housing Solutions will act as property manager for the residential units, one of which is 3-bedroom, eight of which are 2-bedroom and three of which are 1-bedroom. Call 313-841-3727, extension 325 for more information. SER Metro Detroit will act as leasing agent for the commercial space. Call 313-846-2240, extension 228.
