Marquette Reopens The Maxwell Apartments in Detroit

Marquette Companies recently celebrated the grand reopening of The Maxwell apartments in Romulus, Michigan. The firm has completed significant renovations to the 312-unit community through an $8 million revitalization project covering repairs and property updates.  

Mayor Robert McCraight thanked Marquette Companies and partner DRA Advisors for their efforts to restore The Maxwell. Marquette worked closely with city officials prior to acquiring the property and throughout the renovation while using local vendors for the construction work.

“As is the case with all of our ground-up and value-add developments, we engaged the community of Romulus very early on as partners in this process of revitalizing The Maxwell,” said Jim Cunningham, chief operating officer at Marquette Companies. “Just over a year after beginning this effort, we are already seeing a ripple effect to the neighborhood as a whole with the addition of 123 new residents to the community and reports of improved public safety.”
