Looking for Reclaimed Wood? The City of Detroit Joins the Salvage Business – Next City

Detroit’s Great Lakes Coffee used salvaged materials to pay homage to a bygone era.

Last week, Duggan announced a new pilot salvage program for the city’s North Corktown neighborhood. It’s starting small. The city will solicit bids from local salvaging outfits to find reusable materials in 10 houses set to be demolished. The city’s Building Authority is in charge of the effort.

The initiative, which they hope will launch next month, is part of the Mayor’s broader blight strategy, now with an eye on preservation as opposed to straight-up demolition.
