the sawtooth: DETROIT

OVERVIEW:

The Sawtooth building is named for the beautiful skylights on the second floor of this former Jeep seat upholstery factory. The ground floor of this building will be converted into four commercial spaces, with a coffee roasting facility and food laboratory on the end anchoring the activity in this building. The rest of the space will evolve with the neighborhood. This building hopes to serve as a catalyst for the commercial activity in the zone.
