City Club Apartments CBD Detroit

First New, Mixed-Use Apartment Hotel in Detroit's Central Business District in Nearly 30 Years Opens

City Club Apartments completed two multifamily projects in 2021 in downtown Detroit including the first new, mixed-use high-rise in Detroit’s central business district in nearly 30 years.
Designed by BKV Group, the 288-unit City Club Apartments CBD Detroit is an amenity-rich, seven-story development overlooking Grand Circus Park. It revitalizes a vacant urban infill site that was once home to the historic Statler Hotel.
Offering housing at a variety of price points, CCA CBD Detroit features studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom units including penthouses and townhomes. There are 53 different floor plans, with four finish packages available.

CBD Detroit landscape

CBD Detroit respects the surrounding cityscape.

For visual appeal and scale that respects the surrounding cityscape, the single building has the appearance of multiple structures. The street-facing facade features a neutral color palette of white, black, and wood tones. The interior courtyard showcases a bold mix of colors and patterns associated with the City Club Apartments brand. The concave front of the building facing Grand Circus Park mimics the curve of the streets marking the park’s perimeter.

Amenity Design

Amenity design was extremely important to the BKV Group.

Amenities support social connections. They include a lobby lounge library; entertainment club room with kitchen; theater; 24/7 Whole Body Fitness Center, a business center with conference room, and an indoor pool and hot tub that connects to an expansive courtyard via garage doors. Outside, a kitchen and bar area, separate outdoor theater/event space, Zen garden, and bark park are available for residents. A multi-story exterior mural on the adjacent CCA Detroit property overlooks the courtyard.
CCA CBD Detroit’s retail spaces, situated adjacent to the park, take advantage of the views for outdoor dining and connection to the community. Tenants include The Statler Bistro, the city’s first indoor/outdoor casual French dining destination and Premier Pet Supply.
BKV Group also served as the interior designer for the renovation of CCA Lafayette Park, a significant update of a 1970s-era multifamily community formerly known as Elmwood Park Plaza. Interior work included upgrades of existing units, including four standard and four penthouse plans. Improvements include new flooring, paint, and lighting, as well as updated kitchens and baths. Select units offer movable kitchen islands, glass tile backsplashes, granite kitchen countertops, and private balconies.
