You’ve got to love when an entire neighborhood comes together to make a project successful. On Wednesday night, I attended the “Dusty Boot Tour” of the brand new Waverly Station Townhomes being built at the corner of West 57th and Bridge Avenue.
Phase 1, currently under construction and consisting of 6 townhomes is already sold out. Construction is starting soon on Phase 2, which will consist of 8 townhomes. All told, the development will ultimately have 22 units.
The townhomes have beautiful open floor plans and rooftop decks with great views of the city.
After getting to walk through the new construction, a couple of Waverly Station’s neighbors treated us to some of the delicious food the area has to offer: hot dogs from Happy Dog and ice cream from Sweet Moses!
We also got to hear from Cleveland Ward 15 Councilman Matt Zone; Detroit Shoreway Executive Director Jeff Ramsey; Michael DeCesare, the builder for Waverly Station; and Scott Phillips from Keller Williams Realty, who is clearly doing their job and then some selling the Waverly Station townhomes.
Everyone who addressed the group that night talked about wanting to continue the revitalization of the neighborhood and how, with new developments like Waverly Station, the Gordon Square area is flourishing with restaurants, shops, theater, and young active residents.
There was a true sense of the community being behind the new Waverly Station development and it’s amazing to think that where a blighted, unused store once stood, 22 new townhomes will soon thrive. During his speech, Councilman Zone introduced us to the Simmons couple, who have lived in the neighborhood for 52 years.
They have seen a lot of changes and have consistently worked to improve and strengthen their community. If you’re in the market, Waverly Station looks to be a beautiful place to live. But even if you’re not, you have to appreciate what this development will add to the community and admire the true teamwork and support it receives.
