What Are Apartments Going for in Downtown and Midtown Detroit? Here's a Sampling

The Griswold is in the Capitol Park area.

Want to be one of the cool people living downtown or Midtown? You better be either rich or willing to pay a large portion of your salary as an office drone for the thrill of it all. The newer -- or rather, newly renovated -- buildings in Gilbertville have blown past the $2/square foot threshold.

Parking is not included, either. Nor is electricity, in some.

Which means you'll be paying more than a grand to live in a space only somewhat larger than Secretariat's box stall, but hey -- he was the greatest racehorse that ever lived, and you've got a MoGo dock right outside the door, so who's got it better?

Some Midtown buildings are cheaper, but are definitely $2/square foot-curious, shall we say. (Plus electricity.)

Center City Properties of Detroit sent an email Wednesday listing a number of rental units in Midtown and downtown Detroit. No surprise, many are not cheap.

Below, a sampling with monthly rents:
