About K’Jon’s Host, Garden Court Condominiums
Garden Court is significant as a large, early design of the famed architect, Albert Kahn, and for its association with the family of Hiram Walker. Albert Kahn designed the Garden Court building in 1915 for J. Harrington Walker (of Hiram Walker & Sons, Distillers). The building was rumored to have been constructed so the son of Whiskey giant Hiram Walker could view Detroit River traffic from his deceased father’s distilleries in Canada during prohibition. Today, the building’s two distinctive towers, with elegant entryways and lobbies, offer spectacular panoramic views of the Detroit River and the vibrancy of cross-border city skylines. Garden Court has beautiful one, two, three, and four bedroom homes, offering a variety of spacious floor plans ranging from 700 to 3,400 square feet. All units are designed to create a private haven in a fast-paced cosmopolitan environment. 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.
