City Club Apartments, a 100-year-old Detroit company, and the city of Detroit jointly announced today that Target will become an anchor tenant in the upcoming City Club Apartments mixed-use community in Midtown.

The new 32,000-square-foot store will be located at the southeast corner of Mack Avenue and Woodward Avenue. Located on 2.4 acres, the City Club Apartments Midtown will include 350 apartments and penthouse apartments in three distinct and connected buildings.

“I would like to thank Target for choosing Detroit, Midtown, and our next new mixed-use apartment hotel community in the city,” says Jonathan Holtzman, CEO of City Club Apartments.  “This important announcement is a testament to Detroit’s strong leadership and continued momentum.

“I applaud Mayor Mike Duggan, the planning and other departments, City Council President Brenda Jones, City Council, the Midtown neighborhood, and Sue Mosey (executive director of Midtown Detroit Inc.). It has been a major and coordinated effort to secure approvals on our initial plans from the planning and zoning departments, attract Target as an anchor tenant and complete our agreement with the landowner.”

Twenty percent of the apartments will be affordable at to low-income households. The street level retail space will include the Target store, and international bank branch, and a restaurant café with dedicated outdoor seating.

“Any day we get to announce that a respected national retailer like Target is choosing to locate in our city is a great day,” says Duggan. “Over the past decade we have seen Midtown develop into a vibrant, diverse, mixed-income neighborhood.

“Adding this Target store will provide an anchor retail presence to serve residents in the area and across the city.  I’m deeply grateful to Target, City Club Apartments, Midtown Detroit, Inc., and the dedicated City of Detroit staff that helped make this happen.”

The apartment hotel will feature a lobby lounge library, indoor and outdoor theaters, Sky Park with a rooftop pool, Bark Park, Sky Club outdoor terrace, a 24/7 whole body fitness center, a multi-function yoga and wellness room, a business center, and conference rooms.

Available in four finishes, the unit floor plans will range in size from studios to three-bedroom penthouses, townhouses and terraces, and guests will be able to rent a furnished or unfurnished apartment or penthouse for a day, week, month, or multiple years.

It will be National Green Building Standard Certified and clean rated, which included a regular 114-point checklist on social distancing, intensive cleaning methods, and medical health reporting.

“City Club Apartments Midtown will combine the service and amenities of a five-star hotel with engaging, connected and walkable urban apartment living,” adds Holtzman. “The look and feel both inside and out will be stunning and our residents will have direct, walkable access to the city’s public transportation, arts and culture, parks and trails, sporting venues, retail, restaurants, and entertainment.

“We are in the beginning stages of meeting with the arts community to discuss the activation of our outdoor community Art Park. Our intention is to create the Eastern Market of art and culture inviting local artists, galleries, and theater groups to participate in our Art Park weekly events.”

Earlier this year, City Club Apartments completed the total redevelopment of the 18-story, 202 apartment and penthouse City Club Apartments Lafayette Park ,including the addition of a large outdoor park with a heated pool and hot tub, Zen garden, bark park, beach volleyball court, grilling area, and custom lounge seating and cabanas.
