Pretty River Place Lofts 2-bedroom Wants $2500 a Month

New, 6 comments

This unit in the former Stroh Brewery complex is close to the Detroit River.The loft is convenient to some very cool Detroit locales including the Dequindre Cut and the newly-opened Michigan Outdoor Adventure Center. The loft has soaring ceilings, river views and a fireplace. There's also a custom kitchen with a pretty glass tile backsplash. The bad news: $2500 a month. The good: This includes heat, hot water, a secure garage space and in-unit laundry.
One of the rare pet-friendly city units, this apartment allows dogs and cats with additional deposit. The loft is bright and airy in a way that pretty much demands a fluffy rug with a large, handsome dog it it, so this makes sense. The unit has two full baths, so you can even dedicate one to dog-washing if you like. And if you love the furniture you see in the listing photos—modern, Ikea-tastic stuff—you can rent this unit furnished. If you've got a different personal aesthetic, the 2000-square foot 1916-built loft also comes unfurnished.

We know $2500 is a hard sell, but if any apartment in Detroit deserves this much in rent, it's this one. Units in Broderick Tower, which targets a similar demographic among area renters, go for $2675 for a 1-bedroom less than a third the size of the 200 River Place apartment, except that Broderick Tower's units look a little like a midscale chain hotel, while River Place feels like chic, upscale home.
