Kadushin Associates Architects Planners (KA) was established in Ann Arbor in 1975. The firm was formed upon the dissolution of The Urban Collaborative in Detroit, a public-interest, non-profit planning and design organization involved primarily in advocacy planning for community-based organizations in major HUD-financed urban renewal projects, Michigan State Housing Development Authority financed housing and community development programs, and municipal planning and design projects in southeast Michigan. Public and institutional community facilities, affordable housing projects and community designs for public bodies and private nonprofit clients are the major focus of Kadushin Associates' work. Clients include private and faith-based nonprofit housing and community development corporations, private sector for-profit developers and managers, municipal departments and public agencies, and other housing and community development intermediaries and organizations. The majority of the firm's work is located in the city of Detroit.
Current projects include new affordable housing and community design for Woodbridge Estates, the former Jeffries West public housing which is being redeveloped as a $92 million mixed income project, partially financed by a HUD HOPE VI Grant; historic rehabilitation of apartment and commercial buildings along the West Vernor corridor in southwest Detroit for Southwest Housing Corporation, providing supportive affordable housing; new 30,000 sf, $3.5 million facility for Alternatives For Girls.
KA has been providing services of this type for over twenty-seven years, primarily in Southeast Michigan, but also in other parts of the country. As a Principal of The Urban Collaborative, Abraham Kadushin was involved in the master planning and design of two of the major urban renewal projects in the City of Detroit, Elmwood Park III and University City II. In the late 1970's, the firm completed plans and programs for the City of Ypsilanti, including a Housing Assistance Plan and Performance Report for HUD, Community Development Block Grant Program applications and projects funded by CDBG in Detroit. KA consulted on the Harmony Village Project in northwest Detroit, which brought together the City of Detroit, State of Michigan and HUD in a unique neighborhood development project. The firm provided architectural services for a major home repair project for the Detroit Development Corporation and served as planner/architect for the Harmony Village Market development for the Harmony Village Non-Profit Development Corporation.Web: http://www.kadushin.org...
