Speaking of small carfree developments, the Friends of Spaulding Court,
stewards of Detroit's 99-year-old pedestrian street have recently completed
the rehabilitation of a 3 bedroom townhouse and are making it available for
rent May 15th. Three neighboring townhouses are occupied with one more to
be opened this summer in this 20 unit complex.
Located in the heart of agricultural North Corktown and a (mostly) traffic
free 10 minute bike ride to all the city's major job, retail and
entertainment hubs, Spaulding Court and the land around it (google 2737 Rosa
Parks Blvd) have the potential to become one of the largest and most
convenient car free areas in the country.
For all sorts of good reasons, we're offering a nearly 50% permanent
discount to households that don't own cars. That reduces the monthly rent
we're asking for from $1500 (with a car) to $800 (without).
If you're interested, write or call.
