Modern Midtown Living

The Plaza is a complete restoration of the iconic Hammer and Nail Building. Originally designed by Gerald Crane and Norbert Gorwic, the building constructed in 1965 boasts clean mid-century modern architecture. This building was originally intended as a tribute to a local carpenter’s union. The illuminated hammer and nail signs rested atop of this 12 story building acted as a visual anchor of Midtown Detroit for many years. The Plaza has 12 stories with 72 apartments, including 50 one bedroom apartments, 20 two bedroom apartments, and 2 three bedroom floor plans. The ground floor features a sleek cocktail bar, Hammer & Nail, where soaring floor-to-ceiling windows and warm walnut and leather banquettes are the backdrop for period-inspired cocktails and cuisine.
