Welcome to this week’s installment of Curbed Comparisons, where we explore what you can rent for a certain dollar amount in various Detroit neighborhoods. This week we’re looking at rentals at or around $1,000.
This 705-square-foot unit has plenty of character. It’s in an attractive brick building with some amazing tile-work on the floor and a Pewabic tile fireplace. While it has only one bedroom, there’s plenty of room (literally) for a single person or couple.
It’s also just blocks away from the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, Wayne State University, and a quick jaunt to Midtown or downtown.

Far west side
Just barely in Detroit (it’s even west of Telegraph Road) is this little 792-square-foot home. The two-bedrooms, living room, and kitchen are all on the first floor and similar in size. There’s an unfinished room on the second floor for storage or a potential second bedroom.
The property has a nice backyard, some neat hedges out front, and even a shed. It’s also right next to Eliza Howell Park, one of our favorites in the city.
This house on Woodbine is renting for $900 per month.
This apartment is in an attractive brick building right next to Arden Park and redeveloped by Century Partners, who has been doing a lot of work in the neighborhood. The 900-square-foot, two bedroom unit has new everything: hardwood floors, bathroom, and kitchen.
It’s also right around the corner from a mini-commercial block on John R that recently got a new bookstore, among other businesses.
This apartment on Kenilworth is renting for $950 per month.
This second floor unit is for the utilitarian renter. Two-bedrooms, 1,000 square feet, basic room design. But it’s in a distinct brick mixed-use building on Joseph Campau just north of Caniff, in close proximity to Hamtramck’s main commercial district.
