About 18,000 square feet of warehouse space is available to rent in Detroit’s Corktown neighborhood, close to the old Tiger Stadium and the new offices of Lightweight Innovations for Tomorrow, or LIFT.
“It’s one of those spaces you can do almost anything,” says Angel Gambino, founder of the Alchemists Collective, the Detroit-based innovation agency that owns the property. “You can have an urban chic wedding, a kid’s party, a training session…”
The neighborhood has seen an influx of restaurants in the past few years, along with offices as well as a new data center for Quicken Loans Inc.
The three interconnected buildings, located at 2051 Rosa Parks Blvd., are available to rent together or separately. The buildings feature 20 feet ceilings with skylights, loading dock access, and off-street parking.
“It’s very difficult in Corktown to find event space with direct access to secure parking,” Gambino says.
The three warehouses are located within a 90,000 square foot property, called The Alchemy. It includes adaptable mixed-use space as well as offices. The property was once a factory that was converted into an automotive manufacturing center.
Corktown is Detroit’s oldest neighborhood, located just west of the city’s central business district. Following the Great Irish Potato Famine of the 1840s, settlers began arriving in Detroit, primarily from County Cork, which inspired the Corktown name.
