I know we had a thread about this long ago, but I didn't feel like digging all the way back in the archives.

I'll start with a SAMPLING of some of the historic and interesting apartment houses around Heritage Hill. Many times, you don't even notice they are apartment houses until you are right on top of them, because they are blended in throughout the area. A few were originally single family conversions, but most are not:

Stratford Arms Apartments - 1908

Great pics, but I don't think that the Stuyvesant apartments were built in 1889. From their appearance, I would guess 1905-1920.

You're right again LADave (almost). I just saw the date for the Delos. Blodgett house at this site, which was built in 1889. Stuyvesant replaced it in 1926.

I knew it -- the architectural quibbler strikes again (I might have said 1925, but the pic wasn't that large!) :D

And Hillmount:

For those who haven't been in some of the finished Hillmount units yet, I found these photos online:

Every time I see a picture of Hillmount, I am struck as to how "un-Grand Rapids" those buildings looked when I was a kid. First, all that red brick -- that in itself looked very "Eastern." And the moderne shapes -- pretty unusual as well.

It looks like a pretty fine place to live today.
