The Vinton Building is a 14-story skyscraper in the CBD designed
in 1916 by renowned architect Albert Kahn. The steel and terra cotta building
was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1983, but that couldn’t
protect it from the economic downturn that wracked the city during that same era.
A collection of local business professionals committed to redeveloping the building into a collection of loft residences—for their own occupancy. Instead of a master developer, the Vinton Building now
has a group of 10 owner/occupiers who not only believe in Detroit’s revitalization,
but are prepared to live right in the midst of the CBD. Acquest Realty Advisors, helped guide the
redevelopment process and worked closely with the 10 stakeholders.
