Properties available:

Southwest Housing Solutions provides premier office and commercial space in southwest Detroit. The newly renovated buildings are highly visible and are located on the major and busy arteries of West Vernor Highway and Michigan Avenue. West Vernor has been called “the city's most viable commercial street" by the Detroit Free Press. The Michigan Avenue corridor is in the midst of an exciting redevelopment and renaissance.

 Many of the spaces are newly remodeled with complete office finishes (kitchens, bathrooms, etc.). Rental rates start from $10 per square foot and will be lowered if two-year leases are executed.
