One of the coolest—and most centrally located—loft conversions in Detroit has to be the Leland Lofts at the Nellie Leland School. The former school was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2002 and converted into lofts by developer Joel Landy. It sits on the northern end of Lafayette Park, near Eastern Market and close to downtown.

This new listing is pushing the price in the area, but comparable to Midtown prices. This loft has two bedrooms and one-and-a-half baths (one bath has lovely cabinetry); an open living and dining space with big windows; and many built-ins from the classroom itself. The windows especially make the living space and bedrooms open and bright. The building also has rooftop access. The unit comes with covered and lot parking. It’s a unique space and different than any of the other lofts on the market. It’s listed through Jan Dijkers at the Loft Warehouse.
