1500 Woodward Avenue

The mid-rise at 1500 Woodward Avenue was designed by architect Gordon Lloyd and constructed in 1891 as the Schwankovsky Building for the music store. The six-story structure of iron, brick and brownstone became the Wright Kay Building in 1920 and was occupied by the jewelry store until 1978. In 2011, the property was purchased by Bedrock and renovated by architecture firm Neumann Smith. The second-floor fine-dining restaurant boasts corner windows overlooking an active intersection of Woodward Avenue and looking up the block to Grand Circus Park.
