A proposed mixed-use development on the corner of John R and Edmund Place in Brush Park is being discussed between the developers and the city and neighborhood. The three-building project spearheaded by 112 Edmund Place, LLC and Brush Park Properties, LLC and designed by Oombra Architects, LLC includes a seven-story building which is at the center of talks with Brush Parks residents due to its height.
Midtown’s Brush Park neighborhood, east of Woodward and north of I-75, is rapidly building residential units to keep up with the Greater Downtown’s housing demand. Dan Gilbert’s Bedrock’s City Modern project is leading the charge with 400 new residential units currently under construction. As the neighborhood continues to develop at such a clip, 112 Edmund Place, LLC is meeting with current neighborhood residents to ensure that the project will be met with nothing but support. The seven-story building at 112 Edmund Place has seen recent criticism from tenants of the Carlton Lofts who are worried that their views of downtown will be obstructed but the developers have been keen to be transparent throughout the entire planning process.
Another building at 2827 John R will incorporate an old carriage house, which will be transformed into a restaurant, into a larger mixed use building with upper level residential units.
The third proposed building is a three-story structure at 105 Alfred and will be comprised of townhouses with rooftop balconies and green spaces.
