The building located at 1111 Bellevue Street will be a facility, called The Movement, which incorporates transitional housing in the Wing addition. The wing design will be industrial style, while still incorporating historical architectural elements, technological advancements and economically affordable methods abiding by LEED guidelines. The main purpose of this facility is to aid in the redevelopment of Detroit, MI, and to help the community by providing a place in the neighborhood that offers an opportunity to improve one’s lifestyle. The selected tenants of the transitional housing facility will work in the main building as a part of the transitional program and the ground level of the facility will include commercial spaces that benefit tenants, as well as non-tenants. This facility will include a variety of living units, educational resource centers and additional public spaces. The tenants will leave the facility with job experience, an education on how to better their future and motivation to succeed. The living units will be strategically space planned to allow for an easy transition into a standard apartment complex if the area no longer needs a transitional facility.
