Briggs Houze is located in Grand Circus Park, a historical district that spans along the corner of Adams St. and Park St. in Downtown Detroit. It sits just steps away from the M-1 Rail Line system on Woodward Ave. The famous landmark, formerly known as the Briggs Hotel, is a handsome building that possesses a classic charm befitting its historical heritage. The building represents the past and present as part of Detroit’s restorative movement. Today, Briggs Houze embodies elegance and contemporary charm.
In the early 1920's, Detroit's prestigious Grand Circus Park sat crowded with high-rises, theaters, stadiums and museums. The automotive boom in the city created pressure for office space -- and development began to spill north from Grand Circus Park up through Park Avenue. The 17-story building opened as Hotel Briggs. As the district developed, Detroiters consciously perceived this area as the city's version of Fifth Avenue. Hotel Briggs adjoined the Oriental Theater, the lobby of which was incorporated into the hotel.
The newly renovated Briggs Houze apartments leave just enough of the original building style. These touches give a unique feel to this apartment community. It is conveniently located - within walking distance to pretty much anything you could possibly want to do in downtown Detroit. The management team is truly concerned about the experience of the tenants and is quick to act or respond. I am quite satisfied with the accommodations that are delivered for the price.
If the charm of the historical value doesn't grab you, then the culture of being in Downtown Detroit with awesome amenities definitely will! Fresh newly remodeled apartments with a historical feel that just makes you feel "good ol' home comfort"!!!
