Anew Life Prosthetics and Orthotics founder Chris Casteel spent a lot of time driving around Detroit looking for “something that would work for us.” Then he came across a sale sign on a building at the corner of Woodward and Milwaukee … the Albert Kahn-designed original Savings Bank #3 in the New Center area.
“We fell in love with the building’s architectural style,” he says. “… From there, “everything just started falling in to place.”
The Roby family of “Roby’s Shoes” owned the building. The Roby’s have been great stewards of the building and wanted a business like ours in the neighborhood. All later Albert Kahn banks were modeled after this style and replicated several times throughout the city of Detroit.
