Project Highlight

Tuxedo Avenue Recording Studios

The 4,000 square foot building on Gratiot Avenue just north of Utica Road was an ideal fit for this new business with a large, double-height space that will serve as the new live room, space for two control rooms of Comentale’s signature design and multiple production rooms, artists” lounges, offices and other facilities.


Our team met with the client to understand their requirements with the goal of producing the site plan quickly.


Once agreement was made on the site plan, we worked quickly and diligently to develop a design under budget.


Leveraging our decades of experience and building legal expertise, our client received project approval from the county quickly.


Don’t take our word for it, listen to other clients.. If you’re facing a particular challenge, fine! We may have an applicable project, or a product, for which we already have a tested solution.

Tim is AWESOME SAUCE! The building inspectors in Livonia really had us in a jam and Tim came in and handled everything. I called him right after having a heated talk with the city and Tim was so understanding and had such a soothing spirit he instantly made me feel 10x better. He met us the same day and we never had another bad experience with the city again. We would definitely recommend and hire him again!

Kevin Donley

Home Business Owner, Southfield

When I was confronted with the fact that my entire home was jeopardized by catastrophic stream-bank erosion, I was devastated. Everyone I called, including leading environmental engineers in the state of Michigan, told me that my house could not be saved. I did not think the problem could be solved until Tim Nichols Architect developed an affordable solution to stabilize the stream bank and permanently reinforce the foundation of my house. Thank you Tim!
