The Cass-Davenport Historic District is a historic district of apartment buildings in Detroit, Michigan, roughly bounded by Cass Avenue, Davenport Street, and Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard. The district was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1997. The Milner Arms Apartments (originally known as the Hotel Stevenson) abuts, but is not within, the district.
The district includes four apartment buildings near the corner of Cass Avenue and Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard:
These buildings are all three to six stories tall and are constructed of brick with limestone or cast stone details. The group of buildings reflect a change in apartment building design in Detroit: starting with the small scale, luxurious apartment buildings built near the turn of the century and continuing to the large scale, high density apartment buildings constructed between 1915 and 1930.
Of the four, only the Aderna Court Apartments have been continuously occupied. However, as of 2006, the Chesterfield has been redeveloped and is again open. The Davenport and Naomi Apartments have also been slated for redevelopment.
