Significance

The Santa Fe was built in 1925 for $95,000. [http://www.mcgi.state.mi.us/hso/sites/16254.htm Santa Fe Apartments] from the city of Detroit] The building is a fine example of Mission and Spanish Revival, rare for Detroit. This style was used frequently for homes and religious buildings, but its use in a multi-unit dwelling is rare.

Description

The Santa Fe Apartments were a five-story apartment building built of brick, tile, and grey stone, with plentiful architectural details on the front facade. Vertical elements on the facade were created by rectangular columns and tall, narrow windows on the upper floors. The facade also featured dentil moldings, a broken scroll pediment above the second level, and decorative railings. The sides were quoined and decorative brick and tile work graced the chimneys. The roof was formed with a distinctive Mission style parapet.
