Two historic properties are showing off their new windows this holiday season. The Lake Hotel at 201 West Huron Street and the old Horsefeathers Building on Connecticut Street are in the midst of being redeveloped. Both will have residential apartments when completed next year. The Horsefeathers property will have a commercial component- the Horsefeather’s Market.
Kissling Interests is converting the long-decrepit Lake Hotel in the Historic West Village into eight apartments. Seven of the apartments at West Huron Lofts will be two-bedroom, two bath units averaging around 1,000 sq.ft. The eighth unit is a one-bedroom, one bath handicapped adaptable unit on the first floor.
Carmina Wood Morris prepared the reuse plan. Peyton Barlow is general contractor.
The Horsefeathers Building at 346 Connecticut Street is being renovated by developer/architect Karl Frizlen. The circa-1896 building has 25,000 sq.ft. and had been vacant since Horsefeathers, an architectural artifacts and antique firm, moved to Chandler Street in early-2008.
A market featuring a dozen or more vendors selling a wide variety of local produce and products is expected to open in January. The market will occupy the building’s basement and first floor. Twenty-four loft-style apartments will fill the top four floors.
