Fireworks, Friends, and Food: Independence Day in Detroit!

Fireworks, Friends, and Food: Independence Day in Detroit!

July 02, 2019 | Detroit

The Fourth of July is a long-celebrated holiday in the States, so lots of people wonder why Detroit sets off their Fireworks before the official holiday (on the last Monday in June). The reason is so that we can celebrate a combined holiday with our Canadian neighbors (who celebrate their Independence on July 1). My luxury loft’s Leasing Office takes…

It’s Summer in the City: Get Ready to Hit the Beach in Detroit!

May 27, 2019 | Detroit

Even though I live in the heart of the city, I have a beach (with 400,000 pounds of sand and palm trees!) just a block from my front door at Campus Martius Park! And if I want a literal splash of summer, I can hit up the fountains on the Detroit Riverfront! Of course, there’s also Belle Isle (the historic…

Memorial Day Weekend in Detroit: 89 Acts + 4 Stages = THREE Days of Techno and Tasty BBQ!

May 23, 2019 | Detroit

Growing up (about 600 miles north of Detroit), Memorial Day Weekend meant putting the boats in the water and barbequing.

I’ve been coming to Movement since it was a free festival, and over the years it has only gotten better! Especially since my Downtown…

April 30, 2019 | Detroit

I celebrated Cinco de Mayo long before I moved to Downtown Detroit—fine, I celebrated it before I was 21—but as I prepare for the festivities this weekend, I’m struck by the similarities between my luxury loft and Don Julio González. Yes. That Don Julio, the founder of Don Julio Tequila. Don Julio had a vision when he began distilling his…

Experience Life in Detroit as a VIP—and Check Out the VI Peel Event at Boyd Beauty!

April 28, 2019 | Detroit

I moved to Downtown Detroit before the city began its recent resurgence. But The Lofts of Merchants Row had a vision of my building restored to its original beauty, and they created—and keep up—the luxury lofts I live in. They understand the importance of appearances, and that value is more than surface deep. From the day I moved in, I…
