The Woodward Gardens development signed up to become the newest customer of Detroit Thermal's steam energy system.
The mixed-use development on Woodward Avenue in Midtown, set to break ground later this year, joins Cadillac Square Apartments and Park Avenue House as the newest customers to the underground steam power system that snakes throughout the greater downtown Detroit area.
"These three buildings are putting us deeper into the hottest real-estate section of Detroit," says Scott Barr, director of business development for Detroit Thermal
, adding that the company has expanded its staff to 43 people.
Woodward Gardens is a 47-unit apartment building that will have 30,000 square feet of retail space at its base. It's the latest addition in what Barr expects will be growing list of customers for Detroit Thermal.
"We are very close to announcing some major buildings, including a couple that used to be on the steam system and are coming back. Some are renovations," Barr says.
