Welcome to this week's installment of Curbed Comparisons, where we explore what you can rent for a certain dollar amount in various Detroit neighborhoods. We're looking at rentals within $100 of today's price: $1,000.
Coming in a little over our budget at $1,100/month is this cute three bedroom, one and a half bathroom home in Rosedale Park. It has nice wood floors, a decent kitchen, a fireplace with built-in bookshelves on either side, a backyard with a garage and a deck in the back. Too bad those windows are boarded up. Sigh.
Next is an $1,100 floor-level apartment on Atkinson Street. This 2,000-square-foot, three bedroom, one bathroom apartment looks pretty nice on the inside, with hardwood floors, built-in storage, and a nice kitchen. Too bad we can't see the outside (well, unless you Google Map it). Pets allowed!
Next we'll go to New Center for the new apartments at Regis Houze (yes, that z is correct). They're pre-leasing for their opening in April. For $1,050, you can get a 600-square-foot new new new apartment. In addition to the new apartments, you get a community room, community laundry, and parking for an additional $100/month. But you'll be close to the QLINE (M-1 rail). This one also says pets are allowed. Bonus!
If you can wait until May, Forest Arms in Midtown will be open. You can get a one bedroom starting at $900 and this building includes French doors, bay windows, granite countertops in kitchens and baths, stainless steel appliances and sinks, laundry on every floor, state of the art geo-thermal heating and cooling in every unit, and solar panels to supply hot water. It also accepts cats and small dogs. Parking is on street, though.
And last, from $1,000-1,100 you can get a one bedroom at the Parkstone in West Village. These apartments have lovely hardwood floors, lots of character, great views, and great location. They take cats, no dogs.
