Modern Infill Detroit


Thoughtful solutions for urban living

Single Family Housing in Detroit

Presenting a unique opportunity to finance and build your own city home:

City Dwell Detroit is a unique residential development in walkable west Midtown, Detroit, consisting of 6 lots to select from, and 2 different single family home floor plans you can choose from to be built on your selected lot.

The two floorplans available to be built range in size from 1464SF-1800SF on two levels above grade, plus an unfinished basement that can be fully finished, as an option. Both come with private garages, backyards, patios, and decks. This is the only new construction single family home development in midtown. In addition to the modern design of the homes, the delivery method is innovative in that you use a new construction loan to purchase the property, as opposed to a traditional home mortgage. With our preferred lender, First Merchants Bank, the downpayment requirement is only 5% down. The City Dwell development builds upon this neighborhood’s modern architectural theme, established by the previous adjacent development, EcoHomes Midtown, just one block to the south.

Here are some highlights of the City Dwell development:

  • Pricing for the combined lot, design, and construction cost starts at $675,000 (ERNST Floor Plan) and $825,000 (EERO Floor Plan)

  • There are pre-selected, upgrade packages for you to customize your home interior, and add exterior features

  • The lender pre-qualified and licensed Detroit builder will construct the home per your approved construction drawings and specifications

  • The Neighborhood Enterprise Zone (NEZ) 15- year tax abatement is available due to the location of the development.

  • Strong future value is supported due to the scarcity of this type of housing in midtown, one of the most desirable and upscale neighborhoods in the city of Detroit.
