Under Construction:  Advanced Plastic Surgery

A new modern medical office for Advanced Plastic Surgery.  We've spent so much time looking around inside our 3d VR model.  We're really loving seeing the real thing come together!

Fight the Blight:  Buick Lofts, Owosso

344 Main was built as a Buick dealership with apartments above, including a large unit for the owners family.  We were fortunate enough to have a roll of the original plans provided to us as a starting point for our restoration work.
  • Ground floor commercial 
  • Replace existing deteriorated garages with new.
  • 3 New ground floor ADA accessible apartment units
  • Renovation and re-configuring 9 upstairs units.
  • 19,272 sf



Historic Blueprint:

Fight the Blight:
W.R. Reynolds Building 1885, Jackson

W.R. Reynolds building has been sitting empty for years after a sprinkler pipe burst on the top floor and flooded the building.  We're pleased to be bringing it back to life with Kincaid Henry Building group.
  • 2 stories of new apartments with balconies
  • New ground floor restaurant design 
  • Redeveloped alley as outdoor seating and beer garden.


Lofts on Louis Glick:

We've loved designing this new build mixed-use project as part of the revitalization of downtown Jackson.  This also may be Maxam Architecture's tallest new construction project to date.
  • 46,280 sf
  • 4 story new brick building in Downtown Jackson.
  • 3 Stories of 1 & 2 bedroom apartments over ground level commercial space.
