If you have driven through Brush Park lately you can already see the City Modern development taking shape.
City Modern is Bedrock’s answer to creating a complete urban environment, with mixed use and walkability across 8.4 acres of land in the Brush Park neighborhood of Detroit.
City Modern offers residents five different styles of homes; Historic Homes, Townhomes, Carriage Homes, The Duplettes, and The Flats.
Thursday, I was able to get a look at the five different models that developers Bedrock and Hunter Pasteur Homes are offering and check in on how the Townhomes and Carriage Homes are selling.
First, demand has been strong. Out of 39 units that have been made available, 16 have already been purchased. They expect seven more deals to be finalized this week.
The townhomes range anywhere from 1,835-2,680 square feet and will run between $536,450 and $761,960.
Construction will begin on May 1, and is estimated to be finished by the end of 2017 or early 2018.
While reservations for apartments inside the Flats will begin in early 2018, those looking to purchase inside City Modern have some options now. City Modern will eventually have 104 units available for purchase.
“I think it’s more than the purchase of a home. I think people feel like they are contributing to the regeneration of Detroit,” says Seth Herkowitz of Hunter Pasteur Homes.
The carriage homes range anywhere from 730 square feet up to 2,005 square feet and cost between $250,000 and $645,860.
Just a note, there are only four of the one bedroom carriage homes and those are already spoken for. There is a crazy long waiting list for those units.
The townhomes have 2, 3, and 4 bedroom units. The units are three floors with a 4th floor terrace option. Depending on the model the terrace would be a bonus space or an additional bed and bathroom. The townhomes are designed to offer owners a ton of natural light with all of those windows.
The Presentation Center is filled with a wealth of information for those interested in living inside this community. There are renderings of the five different models that will be built in the City Modern development, and a scale model of the 8.4 acre development (shown above).
If you’re interested for yourself, the City Modern Presentation Center is open every day (except Wednesday) from 11:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m.
