The Project

In downtown Detroit, with the continued growth and development in and around the Fox Theatre, Comerica Park, and the construction of Little Caesars Arena, St. John’s Episcopal Church – Detroit felt it appropriate to expand their facility and bring new life to the historic church. With design by Hobbs + Black, St. John’s called on Ronnisch Construction Group to add 13,000 sf of building, make numerous improvements to the existing facilities, and create a new pathway and drive area adjacent to improvements in the area. Originally built in the late 1850s, St. John’s is on both the National Register of Historic Places and designated as a Michigan State Historic Site. Ronnisch Construction Group’s work was in keeping with the original construction designed in the great and classic – Victorian Gothic Revival Architectural style.
