Detroit Brush Park Townhouse Development “Rounding Out Third Base”


Detroit – The City Modern development enters the home stretch of construction, with a model townhouse giving an overview of units expected to be ready for occupancy by the end of 2022.

The townhouses are part of a $ 100 million multi-building development that Bedrock and Farmington Hills-based Hunter Pasteur Homes began in 2016. The four-story model townhouse features on Alfred, which members of the media visited on Thursday include large windows, ground and roof terraces, as well as north and south-facing balconies.

“We’re sort of getting around third base and look forward to completing the community by the end of next year,” said Seth Herkowitz, partner at Hunter Pasteur Homes. “This townhouse model is evident from all of the hard work and progress that has been made here.”

The City Modern development spans 8.4 acres along Edmund Place, John R, Alfred and Brush Street and is within walking distance of Little Caesars Arena and Comerica Park. Once home to many grand Victorian mansions, this part of the historic district had been largely vacant since the 1960s, according to the Detroit Historical Society.

“There were four historic homes from the early 1900s that were incorporated into the development,” Herkowitz said, referring to the Ransom Gillis house featured on the “Rehab Addict” show. Bedrock is renovating three historic homes in the footprint of the development.

“This integration and blend of the historic and the contemporary has really been a key part of the sale,” he said.

The first floor of the model home features a bright studio that owners can use as an office, home gym, or entertainment space, while the second floor features the living room and kitchen with cascading counters and top finishes. range. The third floor has three bedrooms and the fourth floor has a bar and a terrace with a view of the city center.

A landscaped trail, called the Mews, made up of pocket parks, crosses the site, providing a scenic way to explore the area by bike or on foot.

“What is so unique about our development is that we are so centralized…”, Herkowitz said. “Midtown a few blocks from here, the stadium district, the (Central Business District). We have truly created and built this housing environment in which most if not all of our residents’ daily needs, whether recreation, employment, transit, or retail, are close to. their place of residence.

When completed, there will be 300 rental units in the development and 105 units for sale in six housing styles. Hunter Pasteur Homes has closed 77 of the 105 units for sale, Herkowitz said.
