After decades of natural decay, the Ransom Gillis House at the corner of John R St. and Alfred St. in Detroit's historic Brush Park neighborhood received a complete restoration in 2016. Built in 1876 in a Venetian Gothic style by Henry Brush and George Mason, the house stands as one of the last remaining architectural foundations of Brush Park's former density of decadent Victorian mansions. Through the development efforts of Bedrock Detroit, the house will become the historic cornerstone for City Modern - a new mixed-scale urban residential neighborhood coming in 2018.
