CREW Detroit Members Tamara Knapp and Krista Capp of Bedrock Real Estate Services receive 2017 Economic and Community Improvement Impact Award
CREW Network honored excellence and outstanding achievement in commercial real estate with the 2017 Impact and Circle of Excellence awards, presented October 26 and 27 at the annual CREW Network Convention and Marketplace.
2017 Economic and Community Improvement Impact Award
The Economic and Community Improvement Impact Award honors a CREW Network member or members who played a pivotal role in a real estate project that had a significant and measurable positive impact on the community.
CREW Detroit members Tamara Knapp and Krista Capp of Bedrock Real Estate Services guided the relocation of Detroit News and Detroit Free Press newspaper headquarters. Knapp spearheaded the search for an appropriate site, and the decision was made to renovate the Federal Reserve building. Once an iconic Detroit building with over 164,000 square feet, and close to the central business district, the Federal Reserve had been vacant for 15 years. Bedrock, under the guidance of Capp, renovated the building entirely, providing for the technology needs and adding community spaces.
Following the renovation of the Federal Reserve, Bedrock turned its attention to the old headquarters building at 615 W. Lafayette. Another total renovation turned the building into a hot commodity, and is now 100% occupied by tenants including Quicken Loans. The renovation of these two buildings and the surrounding area has widened the scope of the central business district of Detroit. Economic impact of the project is close to $200 million annually.
Congratulations Tamara and Krista for your exhibition of leadership in Detroit and nationally!
