Farmington-Hills, Michigan-based City Club Apartments broke ground Jan. 11 on its City Club Apartments—Central Business District Detroit mixed-use apartment, furnished short-term and penthouse community.
Mayor Mike Duggan and City Club Apartments chairman, chief executive officer and Detroit native Jonathan Holtzman were among the speakers at the event.
“We are thrilled to be breaking ground on a new community in the City of Detroit,” said Holtzman during the ground-breaking ceremony. “This is a site of great historical significance and we take seriously our responsibility to deliver a special community to the city.”
Located at the corner of Washington Boulevard and Park Avenue facing Grand Circus Park, the site was once home to the 18-floor, 800-room Statler Hotel. The historic hotel, which was built in 1915, hosted a who’s who list of business, sports, arts and entertainment and political guests for six decades. The building was torn down in 2015.
City Club Apartments—CBD Detroit will include about 288 apartments and penthouses and 13,000 square feet of street-level space, which will include a pet store, a restaurant and a gourmet market.
