The Freelon at Sugar Hill is an institution in its own right. 

Detroit’s newest multi-use housing complex, located in Midtown, brings 68 units online in the city’s historic Sugar Hill neighborhood. 

On Thursday, September 22 in the Sugar Hill Arts District, city and area officials broke ground on the multi-use housing complex 119 Garfield St. 

The $38 million housing project from Preservation of Affordable Housing (POAH) and Develop Detroit includes housing for Detroit residents and deeply affordable units for veterans, as well as commercial space for entrepreneurs. 

Twenty of 68 apartments are reserved for residents earning between 30% and 80% of the area median income.  read the article
