One of the largest hubs for artists in the Midwest may soon be abandoned, at least temporarily, after Detroit's Building Department ordered all tenants in the Russell Industrial Center to immediately vacate the premises, due to building code violations.
Jimi Custer owns a video production company, The Afterhours Network, that operates out of the Center, as well as Channel 313.tv.
He says the notice was a complete surprise.
"I came to my work today and all of a sudden I can't do my business," says Custer. "Now I've got to figure out where I'm going to relocate."
