A local developer is looking to construct 18 new townhouses over on 11th street in Corktown, according to a public hearing notice.

The notice to neighbors from the city’s Buildings, Safety, Engineering and Environmental department outlines that the new development by the Ferlito group would go on nearly 18,000 square feet of empty land at 2037 11th Street.

That’s behind a Firestone Auto Repair center and near the very desirable residential streets of Church and Leverette. Those streets are full of historic homes as part of what’s called “Detroit’s oldest neighborhood.”

The Ferlito Group is a veteran of Detroit development, and is responsible for a variety of projects including most recently The Selden in midtown, next to Honest?John’s.
