Located adjacent to the renowned Historic Inn on Ferry Street, 110 East Ferry is a contributing building in the East Ferry Avenue Historic District. Given this designation, all proposed exterior work required review and approval from the City of Detroit Historic District Commission. The restoration of the exterior red sandstone, granite, and brick masonry garnered approval from the commission. Additional approvals included; a complete restoration of the original wood windows, and the proposal for a new exterior egress door, designed and located to match the character of the historic structure.

The adaptive use of 110 East Ferry will not only bring new life to the historic structure, it will also create more density in the neighborhood, and complete the row of skillfully restored Victorian-era homes on the block. Along with honoring the history and rich architectural heritage of the neighborhood, this long-vacant house will once again serve as a home.
