Detroit real estate developer City Growth Partners broke ground today on its $4.7-million Brush 8 condominium development in the city’s Brush Park neighborhood. It is scheduled for completion in 2021.
Mayor Mike Duggan participated in the groundbreaking, which followed a year of planning by the developer.
“The Brush 8 development is another great addition to the growing Brush Park neighborhood that will put another vacant lot back to productive use,” says Duggan. “With City Growth Partners and Moddie Turay leading the development team, this also is another example of Detroiters rebuilding Detroit.”
Turay, managing partner at City Growth Partners, says, “Brush 8 represents who we are as a company and our belief that great design has the power to bring people together, define a neighborhood and inspire a city. Brush 8 was an opportunity to develop eight design-forward townhomes that represent the absolute best of urban living. We poured everything into each unit and the result will be amazing.”
City Growth Partners says Brush 8, which offers condominiums with starting prices in the $600,000 range, will be “a significant addition to the community because of its design pedigree and its resonance with historic architecture in the surrounding neighborhood.”
The development is a collaboration with Invest Detroit – a community development financial institution – TCF Bank, and City Growth Partners, which was awarded the land by the city of Detroit through a request for proposal process led by the Detroit Housing and Revitalization Department.
The condos were designed by Dep Design, a Washington, D.C.-based firm specializing in modern, multi–family residential design. Brush 8 is its first project in Detroit.
Three of the eight townhomes are pre-sold through Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices The Loft Warehouse in Detroit.
“These homes are about the timeless quality, and curated materials, used in creative ways, like open stairs and glass walls,” says Jerome Huez, owner of BHHS-TLW. “They are perfectly suited to the new expectations we now have of the home, as multifunctional space. You can choose a street-level office with private entry, or step out to the rooftop terrace to soak in the sun while working on your laptop. These are homes that truly inspire.”
