Designed by famed architect Gordon W. Lloyd, 1500 Woodward is a Registered State of Michigan historic site known for its distinctive Queen Anne-Style Victorian architecture. With its brick and brownstone trim and distinctive corner turrets, its design has been admired for decades — and it’s equally famous for its artful and notable tenants. The building was originally home to the Schwankovsky Temple of Music, and later the Wright-Kay jewelry business. Mindful of its rich history, Bedrock’s historic renovation stayed true to the beauty and heritage of the building by filling it with creative, signature businesses.
Today, this jewel of Woodward Avenue has been beautifully polished and restored, and houses some of the most distinctive stores, restaurants and companies in Detroit. Current tenants include famed menswear designer John Varvatos, James Beard-nominated restaurant Wright & Co, and the renowned Neumann Smith Architecture firm. With careful attention to detail in the historic rehabilitation, and thoughtful curation of the exceptional tenant mix, Bedrock paid homage to 1500 Woodward’s rich heritage, while paving the way for an even more promising future.
