With Mies van der Rohe Units, Sometimes More is More: Lafayette Park Courtyard Co-op Asks a Whopping $500K

Mies van der Rohe famously left his mark on Detroit with Lafayette Towers. The German architect's work in urban planning and mixed-income spaces still shines in the city, though recent efforts at the towers—new decals, weird messages in the laundry room—put a minor black eye on that. Today, the other end of the wealth spectrum knocked on Mies' door with this Nicolet Place co-op unit. The ask price for the Mies-designed co-op comes in at $499K. While smaller (far more polished) co-ops in this community have pushed the upper $200K limit, we're wondering: is $500K too much for the park?
