FERNDALE – The lofts being erected south of Nine Mile on Woodward Ave. in Ferndale won't be run-of-the-mill living spaces.
"Each loft will be designed to meet the needs and desires of the loft buyer," said Jason Lewiston, a partner of Woodward Ave Lofts. "There are unique one-, two- and three-bedroom plans as well as penthouses to begin with and an expansive Style Zone where buyers can design their entire loft …"
Residents of the lofts won't have to go far to reach the city's prime locations.
"Ferndale is an ideal place for The Woodward Ave Lofts with its diverse, distinctive and vibrant urban downtown district," Lewiston said. "Ferndale is in the center of the universe in metro Detroit and the entire area is easily accessible from its Woodward location."
The units, which range in size from 725-square feet to 2,700-square feet, will feature unique additions. The main building has a panoramic view of the Ferndale and Detroit skylines, professionally equipped theater room, designer decorated sixth floor Club Room and a rooftop terrace with outdoor seating.
"The caliber of design, distinctive architecture and finishes are qualities that make these lofts special," Lewiston said. "Meeting new friends, entertaining old ones, taking in a show, shopping and dining in Ferndale will give residents many opportunities to become part of the community. With downtown Ferndale just out the door, the lofts will be the epicenter of excitement for its residents."
Builders will launch underground work for the project soon and completion is planned for 2008. The lofts will start at the high $100,000s, according to Lewiston.
For the best selection and pricing, Lewiston suggests reserving lofts now with a refundable deposit. "Sales have begun with pre-construction pricing offered," Lewiston said. "That is ending within the next few weeks and then prices will be higher."
