This project will bring new life to long-abandoned rowhomes on Detroit’s east side. For at least a decade, this property has been a source of blight and concern in the community. Now, the rehabilitation of these three-bedroom townhouses will bring investment, vibrancy, stability and quality housing to the dynamic and historic Islandview/Villages neighborhood.
This series of eight spacious townhomes, known as “K8” for its location along Kercheval Avenue, represent the rehabilitation and preservation of the neighborhood’s historic fabric and beauty.
Astral Weeks has partnered with Church of the Messiah to hire members of the community to help rebuild this corner of the neighborhood, and we have reached out to ensure our neighbors have a voice in the property’s redevelopment and supported community organizations. We also are committed to providing inclusive and affordable housing.
The rowhomes were built in 1905 and designed by Detroit architect Charles W. Koehler for Frank St. Amour, a prominent developer on the city’s east side during the turn of the 20th Century. Our renovation of the property will feature many of its historical details, as well as modern kitchens and bathrooms, in-unit laundry, covered porches and secure on-site parking in one of Detroit’s most friendly and walkable neighborhoods.
With Belle Isle State Park and the Detroit River nearby, and being just a short drive from downtown and its many amenities, these townhomes offer an ideal location for new and longtime Detroiters alike.
