400 River Street
New Multi-use Downtown Infill
Location: Manistee, MI
Floor Area: 51,000 SF
The city of Manistee is small northern Michigan town, located between Manistee Lake and Lake Michigan shore. 400 River Street, the site of this proposed redevelopment, lies on the south bank of the Manistee River and the edge of the tradition downtown area.
The development plan is for a new mixed-use building with retail space and 45 one and two-bedroom apartments. Our approach to the design of this rather long building was to break the front facade into three sections, each with a unique, but related, design treatment. The palette of materials of brick, glass and horizontal siding remains consistent between the sections.
