BIRMINGHAM, Mich. (AP) -- A poured concrete home planned for a suburban Detroit neighborhood that's made up of more traditional houses has sparked debate over whether it would be art or an eyesore.
The Detroit News reports Tuesday the 7,200-square-foot home is planned by Linda Dresner, whose Birmingham boutique is known for its clothes from world-famous designers.
James Mirro is a neighbor who has tried unsuccessfully to block the home. He calls it "extreme."
Dresner Properties LLC is expected to get the necessary approval soon to demolish the last home standing on the two lots in the Birmingham neighborhood of Coryell Park before building the home.
Lawyers for Dresner Properties have stood by the plans. Linda Dresner tells the newspaper in an email the issue has been resolved "satisfactorily."
