One of our favorite buildings along the Detroit Riverfront is the historic Parke Davis complex, which was converted to lofts in the 90s. These large spaces offer the loft standards—exposed brick, exposed duct work, very open living spaces—all with the Riverwalk just outside of the building. It’s located close to Belle Isle (you can see the proximity below) and Detroit’s eastern neighborhoods. It’s also just a couple miles outside of downtown.
This newer listing spans 2,245 square feet and offers lovely wood ceilings, a large kitchen that opens into the dining room and living space, a fireplace in the living room, tall windows, two spacious bedrooms, an office, and two-and-a-half baths. It also has a 600-square-foot patio. HOA fees are $731 per month here, and include gas, water, and garage parking.
Not quite your type? There’s another two-bedroom loft in the same building, but with better views listed for $620,000. Both are listed through Susan Leithauser Yee at Berkshire Hathaway Home Services | The Loft Warehouse.
