Detroit - West Village
This walkable, historic district is the eastern gateway to the Detroit Riverwalk and Belle Isle, and just minutes from Downtown. The community is a unique mix of new and old residential options plus a growing retail and restaurant scene.
Just off the beaten path, West Village, Detroit is a little retail and residential oasis tucked away from the fast pace of Jefferson and Van Dyke Avenue. West Village is on the city’s eastside just past the bridge to Belle Isle and neighbors Indian Village.
The tree-lined, walkable community is full of row houses, grand apartment buildings, and growing retail strips. In recent years, many neighborhood businesses have benefitted from Hatch Detroit and Motor City Match, reinvigorating a thriving small business scene along with Agnes and Parker Streets and East Jefferson.
For a relatively small neighborhood, West Village has no shortage of bars and restaurants, offering up choices from farm-to-table, vegan spins on old favorites, pizza, and some of the best baked goods in Detroit.
West Village is a charming and affordable mix of old and new residential spaces, with historic apartment buildings, single and multiple homes, and modern developments, including The Coe. The neighborhood boasts convenient access to many necessities, including grocery stores, auto repair and maintenance shops, dry cleaners, and laundromats.
West Village is connected to the RiverWalk at Gabriel Richard Park, home to a butterfly garden, water features for children to play in, some of Detroit’s best biking and running paths, and much more to make a day of fun and recreation.
