DDP selects Toronto-based firm to modernize Capitol Park district

April 26, 2017

The Downtown Detroit Partnership selected architecture firm Public Work to lead a Capitol Park Historic District redesign project this fall.

Capitol Park District is comprised of a park and numerous buildings designed by renowned architects such as Albert Kahn (the Griswold Building) and John Donaldson (the David Stott Building). The district, added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1999, was a foundation of growth for Detroit and the state of Michigan, being the first home of the state's capitol building and first city high school. The area also served as a safe zone in antebellum America for runaway slaves on the underground railroad en route to freedom in Canada.
