Contemporary in Grosse Pointe

Moselle Place Development

If you love architecture and home design, Centre Court condominiums at 360 Moselle Place is a must see. These masterfully designed contemporary homes exude exceptional architectural talent and style. With the inspiration of the already existing architecture, Alexander Bogaerts, created six luxurious Art Deco pre-modern era designed residences. With superior amenities, this well known architect didn’t miss a thing.  These details include state of the art mechanicals, expansive windows, nine foot ceilings, first floor master suites and premium finishes including marble, limestone, porcelain, quartz and imported hard wood. Bogaerts was mindful of everything he thought these purchasers would want and left no stone unturned.

As most Grosse Pointers are aware, this property previously held a very uniquely designed structure that was originally built in 1936 by the Ford family and operated as a private indoor tennis club. The oddly shaped building was reminiscent of the pre-modern era when Detroit was becoming very industrialized. The Kornmeier’s purchased the property in 2013 with the intent to keep and maintain it.  Unfortunately, the structure had been compromised by the weather and a long period of wear and tear. Because of this, the owner and developer decided to repurpose the grounds and preserve its rich history in its architecture.  The name Centre Court memorializes the 80 years that the property hosted its exclusive racquet bearing friends.

The units were built by Braun Construction with exceptional individual contracted craftsman.  Thinking ahead and anticipating the demand for first floor master bedroom suites in the community, the Kornmeier’s decided to build two, single story and two, one and a half story homes.  “Younger and younger people are purchasing homes in which they can retire.” Matt says.  They also have two additional lots and will open those up for sale as “build to suit.” 

The Kornmeier’s operate ANK which is a family owned real estate investment and management company. They own and manage retail, multifamily and office product predominantly in Southeastern Michigan as well as the development company for Centre Court Association.  The brothers,  Matt and Steve Kornmeirer, who grew up in Grosse Pointe, run the day to day operations.  Previously based in Birmingham, they have recently renovated the old Christian Science Reading room at 106 Kercheval on the Hill and moved their offices.
