That's an awful lot of poured foundations ... Have they gotten to work on the first block of rowhomes?

So great to see the progress. Looks like we're looking west from the south side of Alfred in that first pic, and then still on Alfred but looking north on the swecond pic. And it looks like we're seeing the first block of flats in the background in the first pic along with the foundations for the townhomes. I'm really interested to see how the duplettes and carriage houses are going to turn out. I'm still a bit unclear of exactly what each housing type is in the development apart from the flats and townhomes. Like, do the duplettes have seperate entrances or a shared one?

I can not say enough good things about City Modern. It's hands down my favorite development. My hope is that this can be replicated in other neighborhoods, and by that I mean the mix of housing, not the price points. lol There is reason low-income and affordable housing can't be built with a range of different building types.

June update via Curbed Detroit. The senior apartments are expected to start leasing this month and 74 of the 104 condo units have been sold with residents expected to move in by July. Much of what is left to build are the apartment buildings on the corners which make up a little over 300 rental units. The current market-rate apartment building under construction (last pic) will be complete next summer with expected prices around $2.30 per square foot.

I was recently at the site and the transformation is incredible. It's hard to believe only a few years ago I was picking up trash around these old houses and trying to tend the overgrown lawns.

That being said, while I am glad that Brush Park is finally getting the love it deserves, the renovations (which is what they are) of the remaining houses are very disappointing to me. I've worked with an architect to have every one of these houses rendered in its most accurate historical state so we have all the documentation. That being said, City Modern is not interested in restoring these homes to their original conditions which is simply a real shame because this is the opportunity to do it.

I had this same problem with Nicole Curtis of HGTV on the Ransom Gillis house. Their renovation was better than City Modern but still it wasn't a restoration. Nicole Curtis gave me the cold shoulder in the same way City Modern does with regards to historic restorations of these houses. Their really only interested in money.
