Walkability. In communities across the country, neighborhoods are being planned with a focus on Transit Oriented Design (TOD) and connections to everything one needs to live in an area. In the 2008 Wayne State University and Prime Development made history with their South Village Campus Expansion development. At the core of this plan was the creation of a new parking structure and Detroit’s first new construction apartment building in nearly 30 years; Studio One.
In a district dominated by condominium and townhome developments in the year’s preceding Studio One’s opening, there were limited options for residents looking for modern rental housing. Sitting on the site of the former Vernor’s Ginger Ale factory, the Studio One complex is comprised of a four story residential structure with ground floor retail featuring Fifth Third Bank, Starter’s Restaurant, Ulchert Art Supply and more. There is a 950 space parking garage managed by Wayne State University that is home to one of several Zip Car rental sites throughout the Greater Downtown District. The area is also home to several key Detroit Department of Transportation (DDOT) and SMART routes including a proposed express bus line and is less than a block away from the Canfield M-1 RAIL station stop, slated to begin operations in early 2017.
Since its opening, Studio One has maintained occupancy rates of nearly 98%. The complex offers six distinct floor plans ranging from a 676 square foot one bedroom to a 2 bedroom 1008 square foot unit. All apartments feature one to two balconies, spacious living area with 10-feet high ceilings, loft look – exposed concrete ceiling and spiral-ducting, cable TV and internet connections in every room. Additionally units have stacked washer/dryers, contemporary, ceiling-mounted track lighting, non – sound transfer walls and Individual furnace and central air. Lastly the building offers an on-site fitness center and on-site maintenance staff.
Currently, Studio One has two bedroom units available and for a limited time are offering a special promotion, the “Save, look and lease”. Stop by now and management will waive the $50 dollar application fee and take $250 off of the security deposit.
Studio One Apartments are located at 4501 Woodward Avenue in the heart of Detroit’s Midtown neighborhood. Close to Wayne State University, the Detroit Medical Center campus and Henry Ford Health System, it is the perfect location for students, graduates students and medical students preparing for the long days and nights of their residencies.
