Ferndale’s Zicor building signs a new tenant

Slowly but surely, the renovated version of the Zicor building in Ferndale is filling up.

GVA Detroit recently rehabbed the old mid-20th Century industrial building on Hilton Street between 8 and 9 Mile Roads into
a mixed-use space, complete with loft-style offices. The
Southfield-based firm gutted it three years ago, leaving only the
original walls, roof and floor.

Today there are a lot of
loft-like offices complete with high ceilings, exposed ductwork and
wide-open spaces. About 30 percent of the 15,000-square-foot building
is occupied, now that Advanced Medical Solutions has recently signed on.

“I’ve got the brand new lease in front of me,” says Linda Oak, a property manager for GVA Detroit.

Advanced Medical Solutions joins a number of eclectic businesses, including a film industry payroll company that just opened a Michigan office.
