Preserving buildings of historical or architectural significance is an important endeavor as it not only links us to our heritage, but it is also a means of community revitalization. Federal and state agencies have recognized both the historical and economical benefit of maintaining important landmarks and as such they offer various incentives to help revive and refurbish them. The Gryphon Group is experienced in the historic building preservation process, which includes extensive research of the structure, historic register designation, identification and cataloging of significant features, detailed rehabilitation drawings and a cost analysis of the improvements. A comprehensive understanding of historic programs is paramount to achieving success in historic redevelopment.
Crystal View Apartments
Crystal Falls, MI
In the early 1900s, the Crystal Inn defined decadence in the small city of Crystal Falls, Michigan. The opulent hotel was a place for weary lumber barons, mining executives and their families to recharge as they traveled through the Upper Peninsula during the great timber harvesting period of the early 20th century. Currently vacant and in disrepair, the Gryphon Group is in the process of bringing the structure back to prominence.
