Strathmore Apartments, a new place to call home in Detroit

Posted: 03/25/16

Housing is in high demand for the Greater Downtown area and developers are flocking to its neighborhoods to help meet the pent up demand for rental housing. From The Scott at Brush Park to the Woodward Garden Apartments, developers have focused their sights on Midtown to create housing to meet needs of one of Detroit’s most socioeconomically diverse communities. In 2014 local community development non-profit Midtown Detroit, Inc. and nationally recognized development firm McCormick Barron partnered to create a transit-oriented mixed use, mixed income development that will provide needed housing for the area whose rental market is currently 97% occupied.

The Strathmore, one of the historic hotels of Detroit, when it opens later this year, will be home to 129 one to two bedroom apartments and 2,000 square feet of retail space. Fifty-two of the 129 planned units will be offered at affordable housing rates.  The $28 million dollar project was made possible in part by support from the Michigan State Housing Development Authority, Invest Detroit, U.S bank and a variety of other state and city government resources.

Located at 70 W. Alexandrine, The Strathmore is currently accepting leasing applications for its first residents and is slated to open later this year. Each well- appointed apartment features granite countertops, maple cabinets, built in USB charging ports, wood blinds and hardwood finish vinyl floors.  The community will have access to a state of the art fitness center, bike station and storage, pet spa, free Wi-Ri and a well- equipped community room
