Detroit's historic Palmer Park neighborhood on the north side of the city maintains a beautiful collection of 1920s Art Deco apartment buildings. The rebirth of this architecturally significant neighborhood began with the full renovation of the La Vogue Apartments in 2012. The circa-1929 apartment building at 225 Merton is arguably the most architecturally distinctive building in the historic district filled with them. The four-story apartment building was designed by Cyril Schley in different architectural styles that were popular in the early 20th Century. There are hints of Tudor-revivalism in the exterior with intricate tile and brickwork but has a common area at the entryway. Chris Christian lead the full gut renovation of the building, helping to restore it to it's original grandeur.
