Birmingham-based developer Broder and Sachse Real Estate and Detroit officials today announced an agreement to maintain housing in Midtown Detroit’s 40 Davenport St., formerly known as the Milner Arms Apartments.

The firm worked with the city’s department of housing and revitalization and Midtown Detroit Inc.’s Stay in Detroit program to develop a new model for responsible rehabilitation of an occupied building, which was acquired by Broder and Sachse in March 2016 and renamed The Hamilton.

“The Hamilton is a unique and architecturally significant building located in the booming Midtown neighborhood of Detroit,” says Richard Broder, CEO of Broder and Sachse said. “It is a true honor to work with and for the community and to restore this important property, providing safe, affordable, and comfortable living options for a wide range of residents in the city. In addition to updating the critical infrastructure of the property, we intend to restore the stunning ballroom and add outdoor space.”
