The $10.8 million mixed-use project is part of the Strategic Neighborhood Fund, a partnership between the City of Detroit and Invest Detroit. There will be 6,186 square feet of commercial space. Apartments will feature eight studios, 17 one-bedrooms and 13 two-bedrooms.

“The Sawyer Art Apartments is a great example of Detroiters rebuilding Detroit in a way that is affordable for the residents who stayed in this community,” Mayor Duggan said. “This is a development team from Detroit that is truly community-focused. This new development will build on the energy and revitalization we have been witnessing along McNichols since we completed our streetscape project this fall.”
