Rose is the best moving company.
I hired Rose Moving & Storage (Allied Van Lines) for the second time for an out-of-state move. To keep costs down, I packed my own boxes, which they moved with great care. I also have antique furniture, some pieces of which require special handling. The movers listened to my concerns and went over the details of how they would package the antiques before proceeding. The team was courteous, friendly and unobtrusive. As a single woman, I felt very comfortable with them in my house for extended periods of time. Everything with the move was on-time and on-schedule, and the entire team, from the sales person to all of the people in the office, to the crew themselves, were highly professional. Also, there was absolutely no damage to my furniture or possessions.

Grosse Pointe (Grosse Pointe, Michigan Mover Reviews) is an affluent suburban city bordering Detroit in Wayne County in the U.S. state of Michigan. The city covers just over one square mile, and had a population of 5,421 at the 2010 census. It is bordered on the west by Grosse Pointe Park, on the north by Detroit, on the east by Grosse Pointe Farms (Grosse Pointe Farms, MI Mover Reviews), and on the south by Lake Saint Clair. Grosse Pointe is about eight miles (13 km) east of downtown Detroit, accessible by Jefferson Avenue or several other cross streets. Grosse Pointe is one of five similarly named municipalities in northeastern Wayne County, and is often called "The City" or Grosse Pointe City.

Together with "The Park" and "The Farms", "the City" comprises part of the southern Pointes, which are older and more densely populated than the northern Pointes (Grosse Pointe Woods and Grosse Pointe Shores (Grosse Pointe Shores, Michigan Relocation)). It became heavily populated between 1910 and 1930 as one of Detroit's first commuter suburbs; in the previous century, Grosse Pointe was home to cottages, resorts, farms, and widely spaced lakefront mansions. Grosse Pointe ("the City"), Grosse Pointe Farms, and Grosse Pointe Park make up the Grosse Pointe South High School district. Downtown Grosse Pointe, along Kercheval Avenue from Neff to Cadieux, nicknamed "The Village," is considered by many to be the central downtown for all five of the Grosse Pointes, although each of them (except Grosse Pointe Shores (Grosse Pointe Shores, Michigan Moving Companies)) has several blocks of retail properties.

History

Grosse Pointe was incorporated as a village in 1880, but at that time also included what is now Grosse Pointe Farms (Grosse Pointe Farms, MI Moving). The community was divided along its present lines in 1893 over issues of allowing the sale of alcohol. It was incorporated as a city in 1934.

Geography

The Grosse Pointe (Grosse Pointe, Michigan Relocation Company) waterfront at Neff Park

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 2.25 square miles (5.83 km2), of which, 1.06 square miles (2.75 km2) is land and 1.19 square miles (3.08 km2) is water. The water is part of Lake St. Clair (St. Clair, Michigan Relocation Companies).

The street layout of Grosse Pointe (Grosse Pointe, MI Mover Reviews) is basically a grid inside of its Cadieux, Mack, and Fisher Road boundaries. Inside this small rectangle, most blocks contain rows of single-family homes built between 1910 and 1950, on parcels 50 feet (15 m) wide on average. Some streets offer large backyards, such as Washington and Lakeland, while other streets are more compact. In some areas homes are configured in a traditionally urban, close-together fashion, while other nearby blocks may offer yards up to 150 feet (46 m) wide.

Home sizes and styles vary widely, from 1,500 to 12,000 square feet (100 to 1,100 m2), but slightly under 3,000 square feet (300 m2) on average. Most of the largest homes are within a few blocks of the lakefront; there are several blocks of mansions south of Kercheval Avenue. Predominant architecture includes the neo-Georgian, Tudor revival, Dutch Colon (Colon, Michigan Moving)ial, and arts and crafts styles. Some Victorian homes and traditional bungalow homes can also be found, mostly just north and south of the Village retail district. Some blocks, generally just south of the Village, have townhouses and apartments. Most of these were built in the 1920s, and can be seen along St. Paul, Maumee, and Jefferson avenues, mostly west of Rivard Boulevard, and between Notre Dame and Cadieux south of the Village retail district.

There are retail and low-rise office buildings along Kercheval Avenue in the Village district, on Fisher Road near Grosse Pointe (Grosse Pointe, MI Movers) South High School, and along Mack Avenue bordering Detroit.

Downtown development

Major investments have been planned for downtown Grosse Pointe (Grosse Pointe, Michigan Moving Companies), also known as "The Village", which may increase density in the shopping- and amenities-focused district.

Two lots (on either side of St. Clair (St. Clair, Michigan Relocation Companies) Avenue) currently used for municipal parking directly north of the current row of retail are the focus of planned redevelopment.

In addition, the former Jacobson's Department Store building along Kercheval, west of St. Clair (St. Clair, MI Relocation Company), has been completely redeveloped. Upper-floor office space accompanies a slate of new retailers, including a Trader Joe's grocery occupying specialized space in the renovated building.

Additional building activity is planned for a stretch of St. Clair (St. Clair, MI Movers) Avenue to the south of Kercheval Avenue, and a new development rose in 2011 to replace the former Kroger grocery store at the corner of Kercheval and Notre Dame Street.

In addition to the downtown development of "The Village", there is also "The Hill" area which comprises a stretch of restaurants. Grosse Pointe (Grosse Pointe, Michigan Relocation Companies) South high school and an adjunct location of Henry Ford Hospital are also located on the Hill.
