Detroit-based Kraemer Design Group, PLC (KDG) announced today the completion of historic consulting, architectural and interior design projects at 1214 Griswold, now known as The Albert Capitol Park. KDG Principal Bob Kraemer made the announcement.

The Albert, owned by 1214 Griswold Apartments LLC, which was formed by Richard Broder, CEO of Detroit-based Broder & Sachse Real Estate Services, Inc. in 2013, brings 127 units of luxury living to Detroit’s Capitol Park. The contemporary high-end design aesthetics of the new one and two bedroom units include luxury Chevron flooring, custom moveable kitchen islands and energy efficient vintage lighting.

“Capitol Park, a celebrated district with a rich history is quickly becoming downtown Detroit’s newest hotspot and we’re thrilled that our historic expertise has afforded us the opportunity to play a critical role in the area’s redevelopment,” said Kraemer. “The Albert is a great representation of the future of multi-family housing and innovative residential design.”

The Albert recently welcomed its first wave of tenants in July, with additional units coming available for spring leases. The 12-story building was originally designed by Albert Kahn in 1929 and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.

With nearly 20 years of expertise, KDG has completed more historic renovations in Detroit’s urban core than any other design firm and is currently engaged on several other Capitol Park area projects, including the renovation of 1145 Griswold (Capitol Park Lofts), 1249 Griswold (The Farewell Lofts), 1212 Griswold (Griswold Lofts) and a newly built apartment complex at 150 Michigan Avenue (The Griswold).
