  • Description: Burton- Katzman partnered with Gershenson Realty and Investment to acquire the former Jacobson’s Department Store, which had been abandoned, leaving a prominent downtown corner in dire need of redevelopment. The partnership purchased the property with the vision of developing the most dynamic mixed use project in affluent Downtown Birmingham, one of Southeast Michigan’s most desirable suburbs. Incorporating nearly a full city block, this luxury Class A 183,884 SF building is truly a new landmark of the city, incorporating high quality live, work and play components.
