About the Villages
There is a renewed sense of purpose happening in Detroit. It is fueled by the continued commitment of long-term residents to restore, preserve and protect their homes and unique neighborhoods as well key core businesses like Blue Cross Blue Shield, Compuware, Quicken, and GM to name but a few to reinvest and move their employees downtown, along with a great variety of new tech and creative start-ups. Add to that new neighbors who have come from other urban centers like San Francisco, Seattle, Chicago and New York wanting to be part of the reinvention and sustainability of Detroit and you have the perfect recipe for a 21st Century American success story.
The Villages of Detroit represent a key part of that dynamic. Unique among a variety of great Detroit neighborhoods is our proximity to the Detroit River and the walkable access to Belle Isle Park and Detroit’s RiverWalk providing public access to the riverfront for the first time in our City’s history. And yet we are minutes away from everything from Detroit’s cultural and sports centers of activity to Eastern Market one of the oldest farmer’s markets in the country.
Located two miles east of downtown, along the Detroit River, the Villages of Detroit are a unique collection of waterfront communities each with authentic personality and charm. This includes historic neighborhoods, high-rise condos, edgy lofts and apartments, and affordable rental properties and new construction homes.
It’s no surprise that with this diverse housing comes diverse people. Artists, students, doctors and lawyers all call the Villages home. And they work together to make it a great place to live.
