Petitioning Wayne State University, Midtown Detroit Inc

Stop the demolition of the American Beauty building for surface parking.

Proposed by Wayne State University is another demolition in a neighborhood already scarred by abundant parking in the area north of I-94 (between Woodward and Cass) in Detroit. The building slated for demolition is the historic American Beauty Electric Irons building, to be replaced with a surface parking lot. Signers of this petition would like to see the proposed demolition of this iconic building removed from the project to redevelop the adjacent Dalgleish building. We believe that there is ample parking within reasonable distance of this property.
