Redevelopment of Brush Park

Recommended Posts

City Modern is a 400-unit infill residential development in Brush Park north of downtown Detroit.  300 units will be rental apartments and 100 or so will be for-sale units.  It's a mixed neighborhood in every definition from the tenancy to the types of buildings to income levels, though most of the units will be on the high-end of things.

Initial phases broke ground in April, and they've already sold some of the for-sale units.

Aside from City Modern, there are other buildings proposed and under construction in Brush Park.

James Place Loft (u/c):  This 11-unit project will have units priced from the mid 400's to the mid-500's.

112 Edmund, 2827 John R., and 105 Alfred: This proposed projects includes one building of seven-stories, which will include ground floor restaurant and retail space, two stories of commercial space,  and four stories of residential space with underground parking.  2827 John R. includes the reuse of an old carriage house and which will house restaurants with residential space above.  And 105 Alfred will be walk -up townhomes.

Brush + Watson: The city has an RFP out for this piece of land, and this is just the Rossetti concept for the site, but it will be heavily developed in either case.  You can see how close it is to City Modern rendered in the mid-ground.

Scott at Brush Park: This one opened in late 2016 or early 2017 (can't remember which one), but hasn't been shown here.

We're getting some numbers of all of his development, finally.  It appears there are at least 2,000 units of housing either under construction of planned in Brush Park.  From Crain's Detroit Business:

Quote

A Crain's analysis shows at least 2,000 for-sale and for-rent residential units under construction or in the development pipeline for Brush Park's 117 acres, which once were home to some of the biggest names in Detroit like the Kahn, Whitney and Hudson families. The majority are expected to be complete by 2021.
