February 3, 2006 – DSAC – 1916-2006

After 90 years, the old girl came down to make way for a parking lot. The parking lot for a new condo development next door. Let’s not kid that she was salvageable, anywhere else she would have been demolished a long time ago. However it seems to be a sad an inglorious way for the Detroit Society of Arts and Crafts Building to go.

Detroitfunk was there and has demolition pictures here. I’ll post more, including a historical look later. Her demolition order came down in September, and last week I drove by and took the picture above. The fence was up, and I figured her time was short.

RIP.
