Mies-Designed Coop Sells After Just Five Days On the Market


If you live in Lafayette Park, you might want to go over to your air conditioning and put it on full blast because your neighborhood is bringing the hot hot heat to real estate! This well-renovated Mies Van Der Rohe-designed coop sold after just five days on the market. Boom! It officially closed last Friday for $112,500, just shy of the $118,000 asking price. While it's obviously got a lot of nice kitchen and bath finishes going for it, the place is one of the more expensive ones listed over there in a while. The most recent coop sale we reported on was for $87K after being on the market for 22 days. There is an offer pending on another unit which was asking $89,900. All of those are 1,500 square-foot three bedrooms that get to tout the famous-named architect's design touch (Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe designed the coop community in the 1950s. There are 186 one- and two -story townhouses built between 1958 and 1960.) Another coop is still asking $134 K for it's tight kitchen and bath upgrades. Can it top $112 or will it eventually be forced to PriceChop? We're watching this one like a hawk perched on a tree of the nearby park. · Lafayette Park Archives [Curbed Detroit]
