Champion Hits a Home Run out of Former Tiger Stadium

When the Larson Realty Group with headquarters just north of the former Tiger Stadium in Detroit, Michigan, wanted to build a multistory mixed use project at the site of the former stadium they turned to Champion to provide modules for the job.


The four story modular building housing stores and apartments is a first for Detroit but it certainly won’t be the last.

The first of the 111 studio and two bedroom units was recently set in place with more to be set every day. These modules are finished with all plumbing, heating, electrical and interior features completed in a warehouse by Champion Commercial Structures.


Larson is leading the corner project and opted for the modular construction to cut the timeline by six months.

"You don't really save a tremendous amount in actual cost, but you save a lot in terms of the ability to move fast," Larson said.

After the last unit is set in place all the utilities will be connected and the entire project is expected to be done in February, about 6 months sooner than site built.

Posted this over the weekend and didn't get the factory location. Nice work by Champion.

I am hearing that it came out the Liverpool, PA factory. Excel.
