Southgate Co-op Popular

Southgate Co-op is located in the heart of downriver. Built in 1984, the structure stands 12-stories tall offering 227 spacious recently renovated units. This senior living community offers those that qualify the enjoyment and freedom that comes with an affordable apartment. Southgate Co-op is nationally recognized as “a Community of Quality” by the National Affordable Housing Management Association.

Southgate Co-op is gradually transforming into a 100% smoke free co-op; smoking is not allowed in any common area or within 25 feet of the building. There are a few members who are still permitted to smoke in their own apartments, because they signed a waiver prior to the full implementation of the new smoking rules. All new members as of March 22, 2018, are not allowed to smoke inside their own apartment.

Resident members have the privacy of their apartments, but also enjoy the frequent community activities. During the week the resident members can join in on crafts, coffee klatch, BINGO, many various holiday dinners and various card games. There are many opportunities to partake in lively social gatherings. Some of these activities may be on hold right now, due to the pandemic.

Southgate Co-op is located minutes from I-75 and I-94 providing quick access to the Detroit Metro area.

Southgate Co-op is affordable for everyone. Rent is based on a percentage of the household's income. So don’t wait! Call for tours! Join us today!
