Lofts on Center are Hot Sellers

ROYAL OAK – “Look at this! Wow …” Jennifer Strong said to husband Corey as they walked around an oversize closet at the new SkyLofts MarketSquare model on Center Street on Friday.

The model is apparently wowing the crowds because just six days after it opened, 13 new SkyLofts were already purchased. The development has 88 units ranging from $200,000 to $500,000 and 900 to 2,500 square feet.

John Knaus, SkyLofts sales manager, said even cold, rainy weather didn’t deter people from stopping by and buying.

“It rained on Saturday, then there was a Red Wings game, so it was like everything shut down,” Knaus said. “But we’re selling.”

He added that the new SkyLofts, which closely resemble their sibling development on Main Street, started selling faster even than the original. The first SkyLofts recently finished construction to become the first downtown condominium development in Royal Oak. Made of concrete and glass, SkyLofts changed the look of Royal Oak’s downtown and brought a bevy of new businesses including hip restaurants, retail and a Barnes & Noble megastore to the south side of downtown.

This second development looks much like the first and is just as important in it own way, city officials say. Many hope SkyLofts MarketSquare finally pulls downtown development down 11 Mile Road.

The new SkyLofts will replace Select Inn on 11 Mile, east of Main.

The $22 million complex will offer the same loft-style living as the first SkyLofts with hardwood floors, gas fireplaces, eight-foot-high windows, balconies, exposed pipes and deluxe kitchen amenities like high-end appliances, furniture-style cabinets and granite countertops…
