City Place Detroit is one of greater downtown Detroit’s newest rental properties. The former Skyview Towers was acquired by a new owner earlier this year and the property is now undergoing a complete transformation. Located in Lafayette Park, City Place Detroit residents have easy access to downtown, just a few minutes away by car or by bike.
You’re just around the corner from the Eastern Market district, where you’ll have access to the market itself, as well as nearby restaurants and shops. You’re not far from the convenience of a grocery store (Lafayette Foods) and Thai restaurant (Bai Mai Thai), located in the nearby Lafayette Park strip mall. It’s also just a short drive, to the RiverWalk, or you can get there via the Dequindre Cut, a railroad line that was converted to an art-filled trail for pedestrians and bike riders.
The building itself is in the midst of a total renovation. Common spaces including the lobbies and hallways are being cleaned and updated. The fitness center was expanded on the building’s first floor and new fitness equipment is on the way. The building offers a security guard at the front desk and secured, gated parking. The lots and security systems are being updated. Brand new laundry facilities have been installed throughout the building.
You’ll also see lots of changes inside City Place’s apartments. Their studio, one bedroom, and one bedroom deluxe units have been renovated to include new dark wood kitchen cabinetry and new appliances. Bathrooms have been upgraded and bedroom closets feature new built-in closet organizers. Additional storage is also available in the building’s basement. An added bonus for pet lovers, City Place Detroit allows dogs of all sizes and breeds (additional fees apply). Studios start at $729 (480 s.f.), 1 bedrooms start at $889 (545 s.f.), and deluxe 1 bedrooms (580 s.f.) start at $925. The property is open during renovation and is now accepting leases from new tenants. If you need extra flexibility in your housing arrangements, City Place is also open to short-term leases.
