The location is awesome. Price is pretty fair. Front Desk is very responsive and any requests I have made have been handled within 24 hours. The pool is awesome in the summer, definitely the highlight. Love the city view. Great Spot!
Raised the rent 150$ .... What the? I get trying to make money but with parking now this apartment is as expensive as a luxury rental At the Whitney building. Don't get me wrong we love it here but now are forced to either never do anything and pay for the apartment or move. I'm disappointed in this price change and taking advantage of young professionals who want to live in the city close to work. They know demand is high and take full advantage. Shame on you for a complex that says its so dedicated to their customers.
Great value for being right downtown
While not as ornate as the Art Deco buildings downtown, Detroit City Apartments (DCA) is one of the more affordable locations downtown that still has a ton of amenities. All rooms are a good size and are equipped with modern options (cable etc.). The best draw of the place is having an outdoor rooftop pool and barbecue area - major pluses for entertaining. There is also a very good gym and business center that is common for all residents. The parking is fairly expensive, but it is attached to the building and monitored 24/7 so definitely worth it. It's also connected to a people mover station and across the street from the main bus terminal so public transport is the best in the city. Everything downtown is no more than a 15 minute walk (Greektwon, Waterfront, Fox Theater, MGM, etc.). The staff has been super friendly thus far and there is a 24 hour concierge, another great thing for safety. I only wish that I had in unit laundry and that the maintenance was a bit faster is responding but some of that is me not being proactive. The community is very young too - seems like mid 20's to early 30's is most common. Overall I think this is a great option for anyone looking at Downtown to live without overpaying to live right near Campus Martius.
The rent is high. Nothing included in rent. Building smells bad due to constant trash chute backups and smelly garbabe areas. Staff is great and maintence is quick.
Great Apartment, weak amenities.
I love my apartment. Layout is well-thought, allowing a nicely sized bedroom, living room, and kitchen for only a 700 square foot space. Walls and floor seem to be made out of solid cement, so noise seems to be no issue. My air conditioner is ice cold, which is great being that I'm too light of a sleeper to keep my windows open in the city. My west view is nice, but the apartments facing east do have a better view. The west also has a buss station below, but I have gotten used to this over time. Beware apartments with balconies on the north or south of the building. South looks right into the still abandoned Book Brother's tower, and north will look into a sand lot. Amenities and building have room for improvement. Many residents are very disappointed with elevator maintainance. Often one or more elevator will be out of service or being used by the staff, making 5-10 minute waits for an elevator periodic. The laundry room has good dryers, but poor washing machines, many with a foul smell inside. The pool is quite small, shallow, and off limits late. Dare I ask why there's a bonfire pit out there that can't be used when it's actually dark outside? Parking is secure. I have a high-end vehicle that I am confident is safe!
Convenient, but not Updated for the Proce
I enjoy my apartment a lot. I've lived here for two years, and I'm in my third lease. The space is great, and I really enjoy the amenities. My largest complaint is that I would expect a more updated interior for the price, including hardwood floors and non-popcorn ceiling.
So Close, But No Cigar
The opportunity for greatness it there; however, it is managed like complete garbage. If you have any maintenance requests, you will have to make the request, in person, at least once per month. Then, just maybe (big maybe), after 4 months or so, they MIGHT come fix the problem. If they do come fix the problem, it will only be a temporary fix, but I suppose that is better than nothing (and nothing is usually what happens). "We have a pool!" Which is of course fantastic (despite it being tiny); however, as a result of zero intelligence, management will decide to "upgrade" the pool (re-surface) for 8 weeks, starting in May and going through the end of June. Because, of course, no one wanted to use the pool during those months and there was time before (April?) that would've been ideal for this "upgrade". They also will do things like power wash the outside of the building, and tell you everything on your balcony needs to be put inside. Then, after 4-6 weeks (IN THE MIDDLE OF SUMMER), the building will still have not been power washed despite your balcony furniture sitting in the living room of your small 700-800sq.ft. apartment. When you ask them what is going on, they will rudely avoid giving you an answer. As a general rule, whenever they say something will be done in 2 weeks, assume that means 6-8 weeks. Also, don't forget to add $90/month/car onto rent. This obviously isn't management's fault, but still a factor to be weighed.

Neighborhood - Downtown
Although the financial troubles Detroit suffered in the late-20th and early-21st century were severe, rumors of the city's demise remain greatly exaggerated. The city emerged from bankruptcy in late 2014 only to face challenges of high unemployment and out-of-date municipal services. However, a falling crime rate and the availability of inexpensive housing within established neighborhoods provides a positive base on which city leaders can build.
As one of the great industrial cities of the Rust Belt, Detroit was once a boom town with multiple auto plants and steel mills providing stable employment for almost 1.5 million people. The infrastructure from those good times still stands, and the city remains an active urban hub with a theater district, professional sports, casinos and the very popular RiverWalk. The RiverWalk provides bike paths, a carousel and dog walking stations to residents who enjoy some brisk outdoor exercise.
