Building tours

Following community lunch every Friday, we offer a guided tour of our building, which was built in 1920 and sustainably rehabilitated between 2008 and 2011. The tour focuses on the building’s history as well as its sustainable renovation and operation as a shared workspace. Visitors can expect to see notable examples of material reuse and energy savings strategies, as well as historic details¬†and contemporary design features meant to promote productivity and collaboration in our community of businesses-in-residence.

Tour

Building tours typically start around 1:15. Tour guests are encouraged to join us for community lunch prior to the tour from 12:00-1:00, but if you can only make it for the tour, you’re welcome to wait in the lobby for it to begin.

If you’re part of a large group (10+) interested in a tour, please RSVP in advance to greengaragedetroit@gmail.com.

Please note that Fridays are dedicated Green Garage tour days, and that because we are a working office for our community of businesses, we typically cannot offer tours at different days/times.
