The organizations plan to convert the 34,500-square-foot building at the corner of Elmhurst and Woodrow Wilson streets into 41 one-bedroom units as part of the Arthur Antisdel Apartments development. The project is expected to be completed within a year, said Marcy Hayes, president and owner, C&B Scene, speaking on behalf of the nonprofit. Fusco, Shaffer & Pappas Inc. Architects and Planners in Farmington Hills is serving as architect on the project, and The Douglas Co. in Holland, Ohio, as general contractor on the permanent, supportive housing project. Currently, Cass provides transitional and/or permanent housing for 285 people.
