The Lofts at Rivertown, originally built in 1899 as the Frederick K. Stearns Building, was adopted into the National Register of Historic Places in 1980 and designated a Michigan State Historic Site in 1981. Stearns commissioned William B. Stratton and Frank C. Baldwin of Stratton & Baldwin to design the original three-story building. A fourth floor was later added. The three-story turn-of-the-century building housed Stearns & Company’s main offices, pharmaceutical laboratories and warehouse. World-renowned 20th century industrial architect Albert Kahn designed the eight-story interior tower in 1906.
In 1989 developers invested $20 million to renovate the former pharmaceutical warehouse into 172 apartments with 44 different floor plans known as The Lofts at Rivertown.
The early 2000s ushered in the resurgence of Detroit’s downtown and waterfront districts. In 2002, The Lofts at Rivertown became one of the first and largest condominium conversions in the City of Detroit. A redesigned Campus Martius Park, named one of 2010’s Great Public Spaces, was unveiled in 2004. The Detroit RiverWalk, spanning 5.5 miles along the riverfront, was completed in 2007. The 1.35 mile Dequindre Cut Greenway, an urban recreational path, officially opened to the public in May of 2009 and offers a pedestrian link between the Riverfront, Eastern Market and many residential neighborhoods in between.
