The Corner by Champion Modular

Champion’s Liverpool, Pa., home building facility manufactured modular apartments for The Corner, a unique mixed-use development at the site of the former Tiger Stadium in Detroit.

Larson Realty Group received the award for Multi-family Entry of Distinction for the three stories of apartment modules atop a first-floor concrete and steel podium for retail spaces. The Corner consists of 111 living units, predominately studio and one-bedroom apartments, with six two-bedroom units on each end of the building. Three larger units right on the corner of Michigan and Trumbull have views for several blocks of the Detroit city skyline.

The Wellfleet has an open floor plan and a spacious kitchen.

“Skyline Champion is thrilled to receive awards for both single- and multi-family designs,” Skyline Champion Corporation President and CEO Mark Yost said. “We’re extremely proud of the team at our Liverpool, Pa., manufacturing center as well as the designers and engineers that contributed to these projects.”

The annual Jerry Rouleau Awards for Excellence are judged by an independent panel of industry experts.
