1001 Woodward announces condo development

Detroit's 1001 Woodward building, the modern, 21-story office structure located at the edge of Campus Martius, will soon transform its top nine floors into condominium units, according to The South End, WSU's campus newspaper.

Currently, the building is occupied largely by tech companies and law firms. The Class A space also houses a barber shop, ATM, and a Bellacino's restaurant.

Designed by the award-winning firm Smith, Hinchman, and Grylls - architects who envisioned buildings in the D such as the Buhl, the Guardian, and the old Hudson's department store - 1001 Woodward adds depth to Detroit's skyline, which is mainly dominated by 1920s-era skyscrapers (several of which, ironically, the firm also designed).

With floor-to-ceiling windows, and breathtaking views of the Detroit river and Windsor skyline, the future residential tenants of 1001 Woodward are sure to experience luxurious living in the center of Detroit's CBD.

No date has been released yet for the project's completion, although interested individuals can sign up for an e-mail newsletter at for information as it becomes available.
