Construction is set to begin on 58 new town homes along East Ferry Street in Midtown Detroit. The town homes will feature all brick walls to maintain the historical look of the neighborhood. 

The development company’s Managing Partner, Julio Bateau, says it is important that the town homes fit within the elegant style of other buildings on the street. 

I have restored most of the historical properties along that street,” Bateau. “So it is important to me that we bring build the neighborhood back to historical standard but it’s definitely important to me that we have the historical feel to bring the neighborhood back to what it used to be many years ago.” 

Bateau says most of the units will be one bedroom homes though there will be a few two bedroom homes as well. He says applications for leasing the homes will be available in a month.
