Another prominent downtown building is set to reopen after a substantial renovation. The Elliott Building at Woodward and Grand River is preleasing its 23 apartments to new residents who want a front row seat to all the activity downtown.

The building dates back to 1894 and served as a home to a dry goods and mercantile business. For decades, it was home to the first Kresge Five and Dime store. Now, after being purchased by a team of investors (the same team that did the Broderick Tower), it’s ready to reopen for a new generation. Kraemer Design Group handled the architecture, interiors, and historic consulting on the Lower Woodward building.

The apartments available range from a one bedroom, one bath at $1,560 per month to a two bedroom, two bath at $2,500 a month. The building has four penthouses, including a bi-level penthouse with over 2,100 square feet of living space that’s still available for $4,800 per month.

Views facing Woodward overlook the Shinola Hotel construction and soon, the Hudson’s site construction. Apartments on the other side of the building face the new micro apartments at 28 Grand.

The residences should be open by the end of the year, although there’s still plenty of work to be done throughout the common spaces. Bedrock will be leasing the retail space on the lower level; no word yet on when that’ll be finished. But considering its location at Woodward and Grand River, it’s prime retail property. Here’s a look ahead of residential move-in.
