The Ferguson Downtown Detroit Apartments
Loft-Style Living in a High-Style Location
Welcome to The Ferguson studio and one-bedroom apartments in downtown Detroit. The contemporary residential property-former home of well-known Winkelman's department store-is located on the most active downtown block of Woodward Avenue and adjacent to the vibrant Parker's Alley. Both areas are replete with countless choices for shopping and dining at local and national retailers and restaurants. Endless entertainment venues, many major employers and several city parks surround the six-story building, which neighbors the premier Shinola Hotel. Access to two nearby private fitness centers-at The Stott and COR Wellness Center-and proximity to parking garages offer continuing convenience, so The Ferguson residents can keep up with the downtown lifestyle.
Each of The Ferguson's apartments provides a modern industrial loft look and feel, featuring high ceilings, concrete floors and exposed ductwork. A set of wall-to-wall windows and central air conditioning make the space radiant and comfortable, while an in-unit stacked washer/dryer and high-efficiency stainless-steel appliances add simplicity and style. The Ferguson is perfect for all-around access to desirable Detroit life, work and fun.
Taking the work out of finding a place to work out, every resident of The Ferguson receives access to the nearby state-of-the-art fitness center on the 35th floor of The Stott. Along with inspiring city views, the always-open space features treadmills, stationary bikes, weight equipment and a yoga studio to accommodate residents' personal routines.
The Ferguson features an opening onto one end of the Parker’s Alley pedestrian passway, lined with dining and shopping options for all tastes and styles. The locally focused restaurants and shops span the entire block down to the boutique Shinola Hotel. Favorites for food include Penny Red’s fried-chicken pickup, Huddle soft-serve stand and Madcap coffeehouse. Specialty stores include Madewell clothing, The Lip Bar cosmetics and Le Labo fragrances.
Pets are welcome roommates for The Ferguson residents. Exercising your dog is a walk in the park, since you’re within blocks of two dog parks. In the same area, you and your pet can shop at a locally owned store that specializes in supplies for city-dwelling dogs and cats.
For The Ferguson’s studio and one-bedroom apartments, the options are as open as the floor plans. Residents can select from eight spacious loft-style layouts, each featuring big windows and tall ceilings as well as central air conditioning – all to create a comfortable, light and airy atmosphere. Contemporary conveniences include a stacked washer/dryer in the bathroom and high-efficiency stainless-steel appliances in the kitchen.

The Ferguson is centrally located in the city’s busy Lower Woodward Avenue Historic District. Find food and drinks, see games and shows, browse shops and art, stroll parks and trails – all right outside your door. Many major employers are nearby, making offices and college campuses a quick QLINE or People Mover commute from home. The Ferguson makes it convenient to live, work and play in desirable downtown Detroit.
Living at The Ferguson puts residents front and center at some crowd-drawing annual events in downtown Detroit. America’s Thanksgiving Parade – famous for its festive, family-friendly floats – travels along Woodward Avenue and is televised live from the corner of Grand River, right outside your windows. Just blocks away, the annual Fourth of July fireworks launch from the Detroit River and light up the sky even beyond your building. Without leaving home on Labor Day Weekend, you can take a listen and groove to the music of the Detroit Jazz Festival held at nearby Campus Martius Park and Hart Plaza.
THE MAY ONCE SERVED AS CLEVELAND’S LANDMARK SHOPPING CENTER, LOCATED IN THE HEART OF THE CITY’S RETAIL DISTRICT IN PUBLIC SQUARE.
Standing 149 feet tall and spanning 880,000 square feet, it was the third-largest department store in the country. It carved out a lane as a destination for fashionistas who wanted to shop at the trendiest stores from the hottest designers. For decades, The May was home to some of the biggest fashion shows in the Midwest, hosted by world-renowned brands including Vogue Magazine and Oscar de la Renta.
Despite the building’s continual transformation – including multiple renovations, additions and upgrades – its roots in fashion and art still run deep. Today, more than 120 years after first opening its doors, The May is home to the newest downtown Cleveland apartments.
