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.
