June 18, 2013 – The Detroit News
Residential rent prices in the gentrifying neighborhoods of Detroit are steadily marching upward, climbing in some cases by $3,000 more per year for the same place, and landlords are pushing them higher at every opportunity. That’s because the rent is still too low for buildings to pay for themselves without relying on government subsidies and foundation dole, developers and city economic officials contend.

Denver residents well-versed in Poets Row – The Denver Post
November 19th, 2011 – The Denver Post
Built in 1938, the Twain fuses art deco and art moderne styles; the author’s name appears above the entrance in bold steel lettering.

Like most of Poets Row, it was built with tawny brick, accented by horizontal red-brick bands.
Mark Twain once said: “Thunder is impressive, but it is lightning that does the work.”
“The buildings have a lot of charm and are on a very nice block,” says Triton, which owns six buildings on the west side of Poets Row. “The interiors also have details such as arches and coved ceilings. There’s a uniqueness. Each one has a little bit of its own style.”
