Delta Manor is a seven-story high rise located on 2.5 acres at 2150 E. Vernor, south of Gratiot Avenue near Detroit’s Eastern Market. It is owned by Delta Manor, Inc., a Michigan non-profit housing corporation. The mission of Delta Manor is to create an appealing and safe environment that enhances the quality of life for residents.

The project was conceived of and brought to life by the Property Task Force of the Detroit Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Delta Manor opened in late 1988 at a cost of approximately five million dollars.
