Comparing the Most Expensive Rentals in Detroit

New, 1 comment

Mansion in Arden Park or apartment downtown?

Welcome to this week’s installment of Curbed Comparisons, where we take a look at rentals of similar prices in different neighborhoods around Detroit. This week, we’re doing something a little different. We noticed a few knockout rentals around town, so we’re looking at the most expensive in different neighborhoods in Detroit. For what some houses cost, you can stay in some pretty swanky digs for a month. Let’s take a look!

First, we’re going to the newer builds along the Riverfront. For $5,200 per month, yes $5,200 per month, you can rent this five bedroom, 4,500-square-foot waterfront home. It does have a pool, patio, tennis court, wet bar, jetted tub, barbecue, and a big porch to watch the boats go by. Or you can dock your own boat there. It also has central air, very important this summer.

This 1899 Indian Village home can be yours for $4,500 per month. This one has a huge, private backyard and a simply gorgeous interior. Maybe some of us would be willing just to stay in that sun room. We’d say more, but really, the pictures say enough.


But who has $4,500 to spend on rent? For $3,000 a month, you can get this 8,500-square-foot palace in Arden Park. It has eight bedrooms so pack up your band or ten of your closest friends and live big in this historic neighborhood.


Maybe you’d rather get the downtown living experience. For $2,800 per month, you can get a two-bedroom, 800-square-foot apartment at the Ashley. No need to spend all your money on a car - you can walk to everything here! (unless you need groceries).


And for a mere $2,000 a month, you can live right along Michigan Avenue in Corktown. Located above the Detroit Athletic Company store, this two bedroom, one and a half bath apartment has exposed brick and that newly-renovated feel.
