ASTI Announces Detroit Office
DETROIT, MI For ASTI Environmental, the renaissance in Detroit, Michigan, started in 1985 with its first project in the city, or rather under the city, in the Crystal Mines. Soon ASTI completed its first Brownfield project for the former Stroh Headquarters on the Detroit River at Jos Campau. After successfully completing more than 1,500 projects in the city, ASTI is now expanding on that heritage by opening an office in the other former Stroh Brewing Company Headquarters, now known as the Grand Park Centre building.
Also known as the Michigan Mutual building, this historic 19-story building was designed by Frederick P. Dinkelberg and was originally constructed in 1922 as the headquarters for the Stroh Brewery Company. The eye catching gold leaf entryway is steps from Comerica Park and directly across from Grand Circus Park. Acquired in 2013 by ASTI Environmental client Princeton Enterprises LLC, ASTI is joining co-tenants Giffels Webster Engineers, Jaffe, Raitt Heuer & Weiss PC, Painia Development Company, The Social U, W.K. Kellogg Foundation, Advanced Building Group, Thomas Group Consulting, and Bank of America.
This is the third office in Michigan for ASTI Environmental, and will be located at 28 West Adams, Suite 1001. This office will be the new home of its real estate incentives and Brownfield redevelopment group, specializing in urban restoration.
"With our history in the City of Detroit since 1985, it's high time that we hang a shingle there," said ASTI President Tom Wackerman. "We have been instrumental in so many redevelopment projects in the city and we see a great future for Detroit as it redefines what it means to be an American city. I couldn't be more pleased to be in the middle of one of the Nation's best urban comeback stories."
ASTI also maintains Michigan offices in Brighton, Michigan, (headquarters) and Grand Rapids, Michigan, which are staffed by scientists and engineers with more than 350 years of combined technical experience.
