New Apartment Roundup
Detroit offers apartment living of all shapes and styles. If you’re thinking about renting in the city, consider one of these new properties in the greater-downtown scene.
Downtown’s newest property, The Albert (1214 Griswold St.), is located right in Capital Park. These mostly one-bedroom apartments have great design with custom features, including open wood shelving, large kitchen islands and spiffy modern bathrooms. Other features, like the on-site concierge, bike storage, fitness center and community room are sure to make this one of downtown’s most popular properties.
The Brentwood (487 Prentis St.) offers 38 newly renovated one-bedroom apartments. Located in the heart of Midtown, you’ll be within walking distance of all the shops, restaurants and cultural attractions the neighborhood has to offer. All of The Brentwood’s apartments have hardwood flooring, and laundry and bike storage are available on the garden level. Good news, dog owners! The building is pet friendly, and it’s a short walk from the Midtown Dog Park!
City Place Detroit
Recently acquired by a new owner, Lafayette Park’s Skyview Towers is now City Place Detroit. The property is undergoing a complete transformation, and is now accepting leases from new tenants. Common spaces are being cleaned and updated and a new fitness center, secured parking lot, storage units and laundry facilities are being added. These apartments have been renovated with new kitchens and appliances, bathroom upgrades, and built-in closet organizers. This prime location gives tenants great access to downtown, Lafayette Park and Eastern Market.
The David Whitney Building
The David Whitney Building (1 Park Ave.) is currently under renovation, and it’s sure to be one of downtown’s premier addresses. Located in Grand Circus Park, this property is right next door to downtown’s top entertainment venues: The Fox Theatre and Comerica Park. Residents will share the beautifully restored and historic David Whitney Building with a new hotel and hip restaurants. The units are expected to be completed by the year’s end, but they’re leasing now.
The one and two bedroom apartments at 3909 Woodward (3909 Woodward Ave.) offer high-end kitchen cabinets, stainless steel appliances, designer bathrooms, washer and dryer units and big windows and balconies. By living here, you’ll have easy access to both Midtown and downtown. And, as an added bonus, you’re right across the street from Whole Foods for easy grocery shopping.
