I'm looking for a place to move preferably in downtown Detroit or close to it with 2 bedrooms for about 900 a month. Also a quiet place that is well kept. I already live basically in the downtown area (Hyde Park townhomes in Lafayette Park)

I've checked the Jeffersonian, but people have said that it has gone down. I'm not sure about the Millender Center and how is what used to be known as the Trolley Plaza? I heard they renovated?

Does anybody have suggestions?

Have you considered Cadillac Square Apartments? It's cheap, big, centrally located, and safe, a good pick in my opinion.

Heard that Herb Strather has some nice condos for you in Midtown.

My parents used to live at Trolley Plaza (now Washington Square). I would say definitely check it out, ask people that live there now, etc to see if it's bee renovated. When my parents first moved there, it was pretty decent. They had a great apt on the 18th floor. But as the years went on, it turned to crap. Elevators wouldn't work half the time, all kinds of riff-raff hanging around the front desk area. It was a mess. They moved out 2 yrs ago, right as new management was taking over. So it's possible they've made many changes. I'd just check it out first.

The Trolley (or Washington Square) has been renovated and it doesn't look quite as bad. There are some pictures here:

Have you actually gone and looked at the Jeffersonian in-person? You may want to formulate your own opinion.

I've lived in The Pavilion better known as Lafayette Pavilion since 2005. We are the Mies Van Der Rohe designed tower on the west side of Lafayatte Park. It's pretty quiet and well kept up. I don't know how their two bedrooms are as I have lived in a studio.

I am sorry to say I am moving at the end of April due to a home purchase in Huntington Woods. I will definitely miss living downtown but it was time for a house (especially at these prices) and I do love my new neighborhood as it's still "citylike" and close to the city but safer and has better schools. I will always love Detroit.

Check out the Detroit Monitor and Craigslist ads. Avoid Boydell and Cheryl Huff properties. $900 won't be enough to get a 2BR in any of the new developments, but there are plenty of other options. Try negotiating in this market. Cash is king these days. If you've got the cash, offer 3-4 months up front in order to get the total cost reduced (unless you think you can make more in the stock market).
