2126 Pierce is a gem nestled between Eastern Market and the world famous Heidelberg project.
Just off the Wilkins exit for the new Dequindre Cut extension, guests can easily walk or bike to the Riverwalk, Downtown, or Midtown.
You’ll love our beautiful mural, modern interior, gorgeous open spaces, and proximity to urban amenities.
We welcome everyone from first time visitors to long time residents (pet friendly). All we ask are that the home and neighborhood are treated with respect.
This modern cinder block home was the brainchild of Cranbrook Architecture Master’s students Matthew Miller and Thomas Gardner who began the project in 2007.
Uniquely designed for urban living, their hard work and construction skills finally yielded the 900 square foot home, that stands at 2126 Pierce street.
Since those students have graduated, the space has gone through a series of hands and the condition of the property declined.
Beginning in 2013, my business partner Jason Lindy, and I, began the process of completely renovating the property and, today, the property sits pristine and remodeled. It now functions as a fully operating micro-bed and breakfast. We feature Detroit artists and builders in the space to showcase the talent and treasures available to purchase here in the city.
You'll have full access to the home, the surrounding outdoor spaces, and the greater neighborhood.
Please review and adhere to all house rules, provided in the description and at the Airbnb.

Getting around “The D”!
- if you are driving you can download the parking app- Park Detroit- when parking downtown, or pay at the Zone Meters. Watch out for the parking tickets, they’re $45 minimum!
-If you are biking, most main roads have bike lanes. Eastern Market, Midtown and Downtown are just a short bike ride away. Make sure you check out the Dequindre cut as well! It is an urban recreational greenway path that extends from Mack to the Riverfront. It’s great for a bike ride, jog or walk with the dog!
I'm a former environmental engineer, urban farmer, small-scale real estate developer, and owner of a real estate brokerage in the great city of Detroit. I love to travel and prefer staying in urban areas actively being revitalized or the unspoiled wilderness.
