Property details

Live near Corktown without the Corktown rents! The Barbara is an iconic historic building with some of the best views in Southwest Detroit. Built in 1920 during Detroit's boom period, the original builders spared no expense on detail that makes this building so unique. Steps away from the bustling commercial district and newly formed streetscape of Vernor, the Barbara is within walking distance to an abundance of popular shops, bars, restaurants and public transportation. Nearby you'll find Riverside Park, Clark Park, Taqueria El Rey, El Club, and the Joe Louis Greenway connecting downtown Detroit to Southwest Detroit.
