A unique development in Brush Park is nearly complete.

The Devon Building on Watson Street, built in 1905, was torn down and a new one rebuilt in its place that faithfully recreated the original’s facade. Now, construction has wrapped up on 64 Watson, which contains six luxury condos, and the first tenants are set to move in soon.

The three-story building has an attractive brick and stone cream exterior with an arched front entrance. The units themselves range in size from a 734-square-foot one bedroom for $384,900 to a two-story, 2,450-square-foot penthouse with a private elevator that costs $1.57 million.

All the units have nice finishes and features—quartz countertops, kitchens with waterfall edge islands and nice appliances, hardwood floors, a bathroom with a soaking tub, etc. They also come with a parking spot (the penthouse has two) in a detached garage, and many have downtown-facing private balconies.

Principal design was done by Birmingham-based McIntosh Poris Associates.

The project is receiving a Neighborhood Enterprise Zone tax abatement for new construction which will be passed on to any buyers that become owner-occupants. HOA fees are $290 per month.

There’s still two units left on the market: the one-bedroom above, and a two-bedroom, 1,012-square-foot unit listed through Alexander Real Estate Detroit for $509,900.
