An 800-square-foot apartment in a brick building on Wabash Street is renting for $950 per month. The one-bedroom, one-bathroom residence has some hardwood floors and wood trim that seem to be in great shape. There’s a living room and little dining nook next to the kitchen, though it does seem a little cramped. Tenants pay cooking gas and electricity. The building itself has some nice stone accents on the exterior and is just a few blocks away from Michigan Central Station.

A 1,200-square-foot unit in (yet another) duplex on Hendrie Street is renting for $1,050 per month. The two-bedroom residence has some nice wood paneling, trim, and decorative elements on the entryway between the living and dining rooms—though they have been painted over. It also comes with a private second-story balcony. The home is situated nicely between New Center and the Detroit Institute of Arts.
