DETROIT (WWJ) – Residents are moving into a once-vacant downtown Detroit skyscraper Friday evening.

The Broderick Tower is allowing occupants to move in, just hours after the city gave management the green light for residents to move into the luxury apartments.

Eric Novak is the building’s property manager and spoke to WWJ about the dramatic turnaround for the structure.

“We’ve taken a 34-story, 200,000 square foot building that was originally designed for office space back in the 1920s, and we fully renovated it and now it is 124 residential units in what we classify as sophisticated living,” said Novak. “We’re definitely setting the standard in Detroit.”

The luxury apartments had been scheduled to open in September, and the two-month delay caused some people to give up their spots.

Before Friday evening the building had remained virtually vacant for more than two decades.
