Thanks to everyone who signed, contacted, shared. Unfortunately, the American Beauty building's fate is sealed. Thanks especially to Preservation Detroit and Detroiturbex.com.
Some things to consider as wins as a result of your support (thanks Melanie!) :
- Awareness of the demolition and historic preservation issue
- Awareness of the excess of parking lots in the techtown area
- Press coverage of the issue
- WSU and others now may think a bit harder on clarifying their decisions when it comes to historic resources
- WSU, because of the pressure was forced to clarify thier decision further
- Even though this building is a loss, the good news is that WSU is deconstructing part of the building for recycling
Good game everyone, much love.
