Garden Court to Host Wine & Cheese Event to Narrow Down Detroit's Design Superstar Contest

Event Marks Voters Last Chance to Cast Their Ballots for Detroit’s Design Superstar

DETROIT – Garden Court Condominiums, LLC is hosting a wine and cheese event on Thursday, October 25, 2007 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. to narrow down the 12 hopefuls of its “Detroit’s Design SuperStar” competition. The event marks the last chance for any would-be voters to cast their ballots. Garden Court Condominiums is located at 2900 E. Jefferson at Jos. Campau in Detroit.

“This event offers the opportunity for metro Detroiters to judge the submitted designs first-hand, while also getting a chance to see the ambiance of Garden Court Condominiums,” said Christina Dibartolomeo, asset manager for Garden Court. “There is not better way to make the right choice in who should win than to take in all of the elements at once.”

Twelve designers submitted entries in the “Detroit’s Design Superstar Contest.” The entrants ranged from first time designers to professional designers. Designs varied from concepts that reflect the historic grandeur of the property to those that seamlessly blend the historic with the modern.

Applications and design concepts from aspiring artists hoping to design and furnish a two-bedroom, two-bath or one-bedroom, one-bath floor plan within Detroit’s Garden Court Condominiums will be narrowed down to three finalists from each of the two respective floor plans by a panel of local judges and online votes. Posted submissions were judged based on creative use of materials and aesthetic outcome. Submissions are available to view both in the Garden Court sales center and online at www.gardencourtcondos.com.

The three first-round winners will be announced the week of Oct. 28, and one overall Grand Prize winner will be announced and awarded the title of “Detroit’s Design SuperStar” during the week of November 12.
The SuperStar will then have the opportunity to bring their vision to life in an actual Garden Court unit. Garden Court LLC agrees to contribute $10,000 to the winning design realization.

Grand Prize Winner will receive $5,000; runner-up will receive $2,500; and four semi-finalists will receive a $100 gift card to an area home decorating retailer.

ABOUT GARDEN COURT CONDOMINIUMS

The 65-unit, Albert Kahn designed landmark structure at Garden Court, 2900 E. Jefferson Ave. (at Jos. Campau) has been providing residents the perfect platform for experiencing the best city offerings since 1915. All of the apartment units have been converted to condominiums. Units are available for sale. The building features beautifully landscaped grounds, classic hardwood floors, 10-foot ceilings, wood-burning fireplaces, detailed moldings and panoramic views of the river and cityscape.

The building was featured on the popular television show ‘Martin’ and rumored to have been constructed so that the son of Whiskey giant Hiram Walker could view Detroit River traffic from his deceased father’s distilleries in Canada during prohibition.
