Detroit Dwellings Designed for the Times

City Modern is a groundbreaking mixed-use development helping revitalize Detroit’s historic Brush Park neighborhood. The contemporary community comprises four renovated Victorian mansions and 20 new buildings, bringing more than 400 individual residences. The six distinct styles of housing include studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments appealing to a wide variety of lifestyles.

Front and Center

One of the largest residential areas adjacent to downtown Detroit, Brush Park bridges downtown and Midtown. The interconnected community offers access to active social surroundings.


Five accomplished architecture firms – all experienced in contemporary design within historic districts – were recruited from across the country to create City Modern’s unique housing styles. The community was planned with sustainability in mind and built with high-quality, long-lasting materials. From modern methods of construction to state-of-the-art finishing touches, the new and renovated residences are masterpieces.
