Located at 1117 Griswold Street, in the heart of Detroit's central business district, The Griswold sits atop a 10-story parking garage and retail structure, with 80 one, two and three-bedroom units occupying floors 11 – 15.
The apartment homes feature open floor plans with nine-foot-high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, sealed concrete floors, state of the art heating and cooling and storage units. All units boast unparalleled panoramic views of Downtown Detroit
Panoramic views of Downtown Detroit and open upscale floor plans are key features of the apartments at The Griswold, Detroit's first residential new Downtown construction project in 25 years.
The ribbon cutting took place on February 9, 2017 with Mayor Mike Duggan in attendance. "The completion of The Griswold helps meet the growing demand for residential units Downtown," said Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan. "The fact that we are starting to see new residential construction, to compliment the many residential building restorations already taking place, is a clear sign of an increasingly strong housing market in Detroit."
