Live in a Redeveloped Corktown Piano Factory for $385K

New, 30 comments

A fourth floor condo just landed on the market in Grinnell Place Lofts, a Corktown development that once served as the Grinnell Brothers Piano Factory in the early 20th century. Until the Detroit Riots of 1967, the Grinnell Brothers' business flourished. As fewer and fewer consumers traveled downtown, the business eventually liquidated in 1981. Almost 25 years later, BVH Architecture and The Garrison Company restored and renovated the Grinnell Brothers' warehouse into a 38-unit condo building with high-end kitchen cabinetry, granite countertops, and hardwood flooring throughout. This two-bedroom, two-bathroom floor unit is spread out over 1,250-square-feet and offers both a private balcony and a private rooftop deck. With an asking price of $385,000, you can find soaring ceilings and exposed brick in this unit. According to the listing, one interior parking space and one outdoor unreserved parking space are included with the price.
