Barbat Holdings in West Bloomfield Township has completed a multi-million-dollar renovation of the historic Jeffersonian Houze. Amenities include a co-working space, dog spa, Olympic-sized swimming pool, volleyball courts, fitness center, yoga room, 24/7 concierge, and up to three-bedroom floorplans.
The building is located in the so-called Gold Coast at 9000 E. Jefferson Ave., and is close to the Detroit River, Indian Village, Pewabic Pottery, and Waterworks Park.
“Where some of the other properties in the Houze Living portfolio are capturing the millennial demographic who want a true urban lifestyle in a walkable neighborhood, Jeffersonian Houze attracts a wider range of people who want to be part of the vibrant and growing riverfront community,” says Joe Barbat, chairman of Barbat Holdings.
“There has been a rapid rise in demand for living in Detroit, and we’re proud to restore this important piece of riverfront history. Our vision is for residents to enjoy a property where convenience and amenities are at the center of it all.”
The building was constructed in 1965 utilizing concrete, glass, and steel and, with 30 stories, is one of Detroit’s tallest residential buildings. The interior and exterior of the building were renovated, with 412 units remaining as “legacy units.”
Barbat acquired the building in December 2017, and Essential Property Management will run day-to-day operations. Houze Living has created six Detroit-area residential renovations to date, with future developments across southeast Michigan planned.
