The Block at Sterling Heights Celebrates New Housing Community With July 17 Ribbon-Cutting

    The Block at Sterling Heights, a new apartment community located at 34911 Van Dyke Ave. in Sterling Heights, will hold a ribbon-cutting celebration at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, July 17.

    The event is being held in partnership with the Macomb County Chamber of Commerce and will include hors d’oeuvres and tours of the building.

    The Block officially opened its doors earlier this year. The transformative adaptive reuse project, which was previously the Wyndham Gardens Sterling Heights hotel, features 213 expertly designed studio and one-bedroom apartments and modern amenities.

    Colin Hooper, Managing Director of Repvblik, said he is looking forward to welcoming community leaders to The Block at Sterling Heights to celebrate the arrival of a much-needed affordable housing option.

    “We are so proud of The Block and what it brings to Sterling Heights, and can’t wait to show it off to the community’s leaders and residents at this event,” Hooper said. “We are excited to be part of this community and especially pleased that we can provide reasonably priced housing to Metro Detroit residents, which is in high demand both locally and across Michigan.”

    Repvblik specializes in the adaptive reuse of obsolete commercial real estate. The Block is a multi-million-dollar project that, in addition to offering needed housing options, modernizes and beautifies the streetscape, which under the previous hotel operation had become an eyesore in recent years.

    “We’re proud to have PK Housing and Management and Repvblik as a new member of the Macomb Chamber of Commerce in beautiful Sterling Heights,” said Robert Perakis, the Chamber’s Director of Business Development.
