Nearly 400 housing units will be built in Detroit thanks to a multi-million dollar development project. 

The Mayor's office announced Thursday that three new projects totaling $102 million will add 367 residential units to the Brush Park neighborhood. 

Thirty-four percent of the units will have "a wide range of affordability for residents making as low as 30 percent of the area median income, which is about $16,000 a year."

Each project has its own name: Brush House, Brush 8 and Brush + Watson. The units will be developed by locally-based developers. 

“As Detroit grows, we want to make sure that every Detroiter has an opportunity to participate in that growth,” said Mayor Mike Duggan. “That means building truly mixed-income quality, affordable housing in our neighborhoods like Brush Park and ensuring that anyone can live in any neighborhood in Detroit, no matter their income or background.”

The project will also add 8,500 square feet of new street-level retail and 170 underground parking spaces for residents. 

The Brush + Watson development is expected to start in 2019 and be completed by 2021.

By 2024, Brush Park is expected to have nearly 1,800 new housing units.
