Hagerty Insurance Agency
Traverse City, Michigan
Size: 34,000 SF

Hagerty Insurance Agency’s newest facility is located on one of the last remaining vacant sites in downtown Traverse City. Assuring the highest and best use for this site while enhancing the street scape was a key task for the project team. Situated next to an existing five-story condominium, the building gestures toward its neighbor and creates a continuity of scale and materials while at the same time significantly improving the pedestrian environment. The design emphasizes the pedestrian scaled character of downtown Traverse City and stretches the current urban fabric from the Front Street shopping district to the newer developments south along Cass Street. Canopies and large glass windows engage the design with the street level, creating a transparency between interior and exterior.
