Gormar Apartments

Located at Woodward & Nevada between 6 and 7 mile roads, across from Palmer Park, this beatuy caught my eye the other day.

Built in 1923 the Gormar Apartments has seen better days, however I’m sure with its location, it was at one time quite a fashionable address. It was built in 1924, and is currently owned by the City of Detroit having been repossed for back taxes on June 24th, 2005. It’s had a yo-yo value over the years, selling for $90,000 in 1979, $155,000 in 1982 and $30,000 in 1993.

Still a hansome building, hopefully it gets saved from both the elements and the wrecking ball.
