Originally designed by the Detroit architectural firm Smith, Hinchman & Grylls, the Town Residences building was constructed in 1928 as the exclusive site of the renowned Pontchartrain Club, which had approximately 2,000 members at the time. The stately structure is faced with a warm, dark yellow brick veneer, light gray granite and yellow Mankato stone. The ascending tower features the art deco terra cotta details of the building’s original design. In the early days of its conception, the building offered lodging, meeting facilities and other amenities for Ponchartrain Club members and their guests. The building’s location at First Street and Bagley Avenue is notable as well: this parcel of land was formerly part of the Lewis Cass farm, which extended from the Detroit River to the Grand Trunk Rail Road crossing near what is now Warren Avenue. In the 1950s, the building was converted into Town House Apartments, with the renovation spearheaded by architects Fridy, Gauker, Truscott & Fridy of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Originally containing 255 studio and one-bedroom residences, the first floor of Town House Apartments also featured a small market and dry cleaner, adding convenience for residents and their guests. Today, Town Residences captures the historic charm of this landmark building while integrating cutting-edge, contemporary design to create an amazing urban living experience. Extensive upgrades include ultra-modern kitchens with two variations of cabinetry and flooring, new appliances, Caesarstone™ Quartz countertops, designer lighting, new insulated aluminum windows and new air conditioners. Residents even have the option to rent on-site storage space. The beautiful lobby and reception center, parcel center for package delivery, social lounge, fitness center, laundry center with convenient app access technology, upgraded heating/cooling, new windows and other enhancements combine to create a premier downtown Detroit destination. Please call the Leasing Office for further information regarding availability or specific information.
