The Leland Lofts offer a cool alternative to the typical warehouse-style lofts in Detroit. The 100-year-old building was used as a school for years, and was converted into spacious lofts with schoolroom character. The location couldn’t be better; they’re located on Antietam, near Lafayette Park, the Dequindre Cut, and Eastern Market, just outside of downtown. It’s both a walkable and a bikeable neighborhood.

This new listing has an unusual layout. The living room is huge and angular, with the kitchen still open, but around a corner. This loft has wood floors, exposed brick in the kitchen and dining areas, a decent-sized tiled bathroom, an organized walk-in closet attached to the bedroom, and an office area. It’s 1,350 square feet in size, and gated, secure parking is offered. It’s listing for $299,900, with $368 per month in HOA fees. The loft is listed through Jim Shaffer at Keller Williams.
