Ground broken for Detroit housing development

Recommended Posts

Finally! Some decent infill for Detroit. :)

The article fails to mention that the new homes will be built in a similar style to the already existing ones. This neighborhood could really use this. This is the first redevelopment activity the area has seen in probably 30 years.

Ground broken for Detroit housing development

By Robert Ankeny

Groundbreaking was held Thursday for Kercheval Estates, an east-side community to include 53 rehabilitated homes and 69 new houses in the four blocks bounded by Kercheval, Chalmers, Charlevoix and Philip.

Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick joined other city officials and Walter Mabry, executive secretary of the Michigan Regional Council of Carpenters and Millwrights. The union has invested in the development, and its pre-apprenticeship program trainees will work on the project.

Detroit-based Granite Building L.L.C. is general contractor for the residential development, where the new homes range from 1,200 to 1,800 square feet and are expected to sell for between $150,000 and $180,000.

Gwen Lewis a principal in Granite Building, said the project has received a $500,000 federal grant for some interior renovations on existing homes, through the nonprofit Detroit Housing Group.
