Built for Detroit’s wealthy in 1925, Detroit Towers sits back on Jefferson near the Detroit River. The building, designed by Walter W. Ahlschlager, is its own historic district and it’s listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Each floor has two units, and this 15th floor restoration overlooks Belle Isle, Canada, and downtown. Originally a three bedroom unit, in renovations it was converted to two bedrooms. At 2,400 square feet, it’s listing for $349,000.
The HOA fees are no joke here. At $2,469 a month, they’re some of the highest in the city. But it’s all about a high level of service here. They include concierge service, 24-hour staff, valet, water, heat, parking, and more. The building also has a lovely riverfront green space for its residents (we hear it’s popular for the hydroplane races in August). The unit has two bathrooms, a redesigned kitchen with a butler’s pantry, and impressive views. It’s listed through Jason Hill at Historic Realty Detroit.
