Woodbridge is mostly known for its tree-lined streets and historic single-family homes built in the early 20th century. A new development will be a rare break from that mold.
Levels Commonwealth will bring three boutique condominiums covering one story each to 4530 Commonwealth Street near Forest Avenue. It’s set to break ground in August and slated for a spring 2020 completion.
Each 1,087 square feet unit will come with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, and share the same features and floor plan. There will be a combination of wood and concrete flooring, quartz countertops, low-e glass windows, a private terrace, and a detached garage, to name a few.
They units will start $349,000 and go up with successive floors.
The project is being undertaken by the development team of Jason Jones of Tekton Development and Dr. Louis Radden of Dominion Property Group. Jones has worked on numerous Detroit projects and counts over $20 million worth of transactions in the city. The architect is Bailey Built, PLLC.
The developers declined to say how much the project would cost or whether they would seek subsidies.
Though multi-story condominiums aren’t common in Woodbridge west of Trumbull Avenue, the developers say they worked hard to maintain the general feel of the neighborhood by including brick masonry, porches, and similar color palettes.
They also said by email that they were drawn to Woodbridge because of “the diversity of the people and housing stock. ... The neighborhood is very close-knit and has a strong sense of community.”
The units are listed through Kevin Hill at Alexander Real Estate Detroit.
