^ It would be amazing to see that in Inkster. And it will have a lot of competition for becoming a "destination".

Michigan Avenue as a whole seems like it could have been Wayne County's version of Woodward Avenue for the potential of dense development and even a possible route for future mass transit (even more so considering how close the paralleling railroad is), but it seems pretty overlooked.

It seems like a long shot for this to ever get built in Inkster, but at least they're looking ahead.

one could say the same about Grand River. Hard to fathom a project like this in Inkster but fingers crossed.

So, though it didn't make it to the ballot last year, this is precisely what's still planned for Michigan Avenue: commuter rail along the existing rail line and BRT along the avenue. With the elections last year ushering in more transit-friendly politicians (the new Lt. Governor from Detroit is a bus rider, for one), there will be much more pressure put on putting this before the voters in the next year or two.

Sterling Height's new M-59 Golden Corridor sculpture, aka "The Golden Butthole" (it's open 24/7!)

Quote:
Sterling Heights erects $300k 'Golden Butthole' — spreads criticism and satire
Jerilyn Jordan | Metro Times
February 1, 2019

If the city of Sterling Heights wasn't on the map before, it is now, thanks to a very expensive and gaping monument erected earlier this month.

In an attempt to rebrand the city, a golden 35-foot-tall, steel and aluminum circle was constructed in a median along M-59 near Lakeside Mall (between Art Van Furniture, Old Navy, and a Fuddruckers). The large "icon", which was completed Jan. 17, is meant to enhance Sterling Heights aka "The Golden Corridor" for residents, motorists, and "tourists" alike.

Thus, "The Golden Butthole of Macomb County" Facebook page was born...
Video Link


This one (from the facebook page) is especially creative / priceless!

I can not get over how incredibly dramatic the NIMBYs are in Royal Oak. They never really ever manage to stop anything, but boy are they loud. This guy wants to build 5 stories and 60 units on a literal main street, and they are losing their minds.



Royal Oak faces fresh development controversy

Quote:
Royal Oak — Controversial developments appear to be surfacing in Royal Oak as quickly as city-owned parking spaces disappear.

Developer Anthony Yezbick, a Royal Oak attorney, will go before the Royal Oak Planning Commission on Tuesday seeking major variances on a former gas station site for a five-story, 60-unit apartment building.

His request comes on the heels of vocal opposition to a $67 million downtown development project and its elimination of 225 surface parking spaces on Williams Street near City Hall.

Yezbick wants the site, now zoned business residential, changed to planned unit development to allow construction several stories higher than nearby buildings and for the city to waive a requirement to provide two parking spaces per living unit.

Yezbick covets a 110-space Center Street city lot across an alley just west of the shuttered gas station. Nearly half — 52 — of its spaces are committed to adjacent medical offices and a photography studio by past agreement with the city.
Quote:
The proposed apartment development is raising fresh alarm among residents who fear Royal Oak is swapping small-town charm for big-city sprawl.

“They are trying to pack 10 pounds into a 2-pound bag,” Campbell said. “You already have a lot of traffic, several streets all converging near there. What do they think is going to happen? I’m appalled. It’s going to be Bottleneck Central.”
You'd think Royal Oak was building 50-story highrises if you listened to them.

60 units is possibly 120 new residents meaning 100-120 more cars... where are they going to park? This proposed development only includes 113 spaces. Nearby parking and on-street parking is used by other businesses and residents. Obviously there's going to be a shortage unless something is done to mitigate it.

Quote:
Critics say even if the developer obtains the city lot, it still is short the number of planned spaces that would normally be required under code and would eliminate all the spaces which adjacent businesses, including medical offices and a photo studio, currently rely on for their customers.

Hallock, a retired postal worker who served on the Planning Commission from 2001 to 2005, also believes a scramble for parking is inevitable. He lives on Center Street, north of 11 Mile and watched a five-story apartment building going up across the alley on Main Street last year.

“At least that project was smaller and they put in parking on the first level,” he said.
Point is, whether it's 5 or 50 stories, if there's not capacity for either size of development then obviously the city needs to spend the effort to find solutions that make everyone happy.

Of course, the other issue is whether developers are paying off council members to look the other just to greenlight projects, but that's a whole other issue. However, I do think the NIMBYs has legitimate concerns.

It's a legit concern only if you're working for the idea of even just 1 car per unit in an urban area, which is crazy. The only way you build an urban area with our kind of zoning codes is to allow for variances. Quite frankly, they shouldn't be requiring any parking for an area on Main Street, though, I could tolerate a 50% reduction this far north.

This isn't Bloomfield Hills; this is Main Street in Royal Oak. A bit outside the downtown, but just barely. I don't have patience or time for Royal Oaker NIMBYs whining about five story apartment buildings.

You say that like somehow Royal Oak is a major transit hub. Dude, it's still apart of Metro Detroit and RO is technically still a commuter suburb meaning that more people commute to work somewhere outside of RO verses within it. Local residents might be walking to the downtown restaurants and stores, but there's too few small office buildings that would justify omitting parking from any residential development. RO would to be a business center like Southfield or Troy.

Looks like Meijer has another small-concept store planned, this one at Beaumont in Royal Oak.

Market, restaurants planned for Royal Oak site

Quote:
Royal Oak — Beaumont Hospital officials on Thursday unveiled some of the new businesses that are expected to open at the former Northwood Shopping Center at 13 Mile and Woodward.

The 13-acre hospital-owned site called Woodward Corners — which for decades housed familiar names like Cunningham Drugs, Kroger and J.C. Penney — will consist of six buildings, including a five-story hotel and various restaurants and retailers, according to Carolyn Wilson, Beaumont’s chief operating officer.
Quote:
Wilson said the $32.8 million development, which is under construction, is expected to employ hundreds of workers. She said the hospital is still talking to potential tenants but those who have signed leases and may open as early as May include:

-- Wahlburgers restaurant, a growing “upscale” sandwich eatery started by actor Mark Wahlberg and his brothers, Donnie and Paul.

-- New Order Coffee, a Detroit-based coffee house that will feature brewed-to-order drinks and pastries.

-- Woodward Corner Market, a 40,000-square-foot “neighborhood grocery store” operated by Michigan-based Mejier.

-- Grabbagreen, a fast-food franchise offering “healthy food-on-the go” selections, grains and green bowls, fresh-made juices and smoothies.

-- Brown Iron Brewhouse, offering house-crafted brews and smoked meats in a casual “beer garden” atmosphere.

-- AKT, a dance-based cardio concept fitness center.

-- Beaumont Urgent Care, a walk-in care facility designed to serve patients with minor injuries and illnesses.
I believe this means Meijer has opened or is planned to open a small or urban concept store in Grand Rapids, Detroit, downtown Lansing and now in Royal Oak.

Northville Downs residential redevelopment to cost $200 million

Quote:
Randy Wertheimer, president and CEO of Farmington Hills-based residential developer Hunter Pasteur Homes, said construction on the 13-acre underdeveloped northern portion of the property should begin in the first quarter next year. Plans call for 300 apartments and 19,000 square feet of commercial space.

The $200 million cost hadn't previously been disclosed.

The second phase of the project on the remaining roughly 35 southern acres, where the track is located, presents more difficulty because of existing zoning that requires a planned unit development approval from Northville officials, Wertheimer said. That development is expected to be 50 single-family homes and 175 townhouses.

"We will revisit the southern portion later," Wertheimer said, adding that demolition of the track would begin in the first quarter of 2021 if all goes according to plan.


Moneyball Sportswear store coming to Southfield

Quote:
Moneyball Sportswear, an East Lansing-based sports apparel store, will soon open its first metro Detroit location in Southfield.

According to a news release, the new Moneyball store will have a soft opening Friday at 1 p.m. with a ribbon cutting ceremony hosted by Southfield Mayor Kenson Siver. The official grand opening will take place Saturday from 12-7 p.m. and will feature giveaways, prizes and entertainment.

Moneyball will be located at 30215 Southfield Road, between 12 and 13 Mile Roads.


Dearborn's main library to close all summer for upgrades

Quote:
The Henry Ford Centennial Library is getting new energy-efficient lighting and upgrades to its heating and cooling systems as part of a project that includes five other municipal buildings on the city campus off Michigan Avenue, said Julie Schaefer, deputy director of the Dearborn Public Library.

Library officials are also planning other upgrades, like renovations of the bathrooms on the second floor and the addition of a conference room and makers' space to the east side of the third floor. A digitization lab and computer lab will be moved to that area.

The first floor will get a new snack area. And the tired-looking original wallpaper is coming down.

The closure will begin May 20 and end sometime in September.
Macomb County gets plan for new $370M-$390M jail

Quote:
Nearly two years after a study recommended sweeping reforms to the Macomb County Jail, sheriff's officials are suggesting building a new lockup at a cost of $370 million to $390 million.

County officials have not proposed or discussed how to pay for the proposed nine-floor facility that would be built on the property of the current jail in Mount Clemens, but it would likely require voters to approve a property tax increase through a millage or bond request.

A new jail would be built and the current one razed under the proposal shown to county commissioners Thursday. The site also would have space to build another tower with at least 300 beds if more jail space is needed in future years, according to the presentation.

A new jail would take about three years to build and would be expected to last for 50 years, commissioners were told during their committee meeting.


Truck lighting supplier to move HQ to Southfield

Quote:
A truck lighting supplier is moving its headquarters from southwest New York to Southfield, state officials said this week.

Truck-Lite Co. LLC plans to invest $4 million into a new building in the Oakland County community and create 95 jobs after moving from Falconer, New York. The company cited proximity to supply chains and qualified workers as reasons for the move, according to the public-private Michigan Economic Development Corp.

The economic development corporation is providing the company an $855,000 Michigan Business Development Program performance-based grant. Since the grant is under $1 million, it did not require full approval from the Michigan Strategic Fund board, the corporation's governing body.
Burton-Katzman Announces up to 1.2M Square Feet of Industrial Space along I-94 in Chesterfield Township

Quote:
Burton-Katzman in Bingham Farms, which invests, develops, and manages industrial, commercial, and residential properties across the country, has announced it has site-plan approval for 66 acres of land within an existing business park along I-94 in Chesterfield Township. The property can accommodate almost 1.2 million square feet of space.

Along with a sister company, Dominion Real Estate Advisors, the companies say available parcels start at 50,000 square feet and go up to 758,000 square feet for permitted uses that include distribution, industrial, and light manufacturing operations. An Amazon distribution center is nearby, while Ashley Capital, a multi-faceted real estate firm, has sold neighboring parcels in the Chesterfield Commerce Center.

The Burton-Katzman property is available in three separate parcels — up to 177,920 square feet on 10 acres; up to 215,000 square feet on 16 acres; and up to 758,000 square feet on 41 acres. The Chesterfield Commerce Center is located on the south side of I-94, between 23 Mile and 24 Mile roads. Construction is scheduled to start in the fall.
I recently photographed some developments in downtown Royal Oak. I'll post those photos soon, but I wanted to point out that it looks like foundation work for Billings Place is about to begin. The Griffin, on 10 Mile between Main and Woodward, is also currently under construction.

New life ahead for Kahn-designed former Ford mills in Wayne County

KIRK PINHO
Crain's Detroit Business
March 14, 2019



The Hines Park Mill Run Placemaking Project, which is part of a broader effort to improve and connect parks in Wayne County with about $5.5 million in spending set for this year, is just one of several efforts underway that will be discussed Thursday night during Executive Warren Evans' annual State of the County Address in Dearborn.
Quote:

The project, which was unveiled last year and is gradually making headway with development agreements signed or nearing completion, proposes that developers turn the three buildings, which range in age from 84 to 97 years old, into things such as restaurants, breweries, art galleries and bicycle shops.

A plan is already underway to turn the Phoenix Mill, built in 1922 at 14973 Northville Rd. in Plymouth Township into a restaurant and banquet center by Richard Cox and Gregory Donofrio, the group behind an entity called Critical Mass LLC.



Other buildings included in the plan are the 4,200-square-foot Newburgh Mill at 37401 Edward N. Hines Drive in Livonia, which was built in 1935, and the approximately 5,500-square-foot Wilcox Mill at 230 Wilcox Road in Plymouth, built in 1923. All three properties are in Hines Park, the sprawling 2,300-acre area that is traversed by the 17.5-mile Hines Drive.

Beaumont Farmington Hills to open high-tech surgical suite as part of $160 million expansion

ANNALISE FRANK
Crain's Detroit Business
February 27, 2019



Beaumont Health announced it'll open parts of its $160 million Farmington Hills expansion in March.

The health system expanded its east pavilion with an emergency and Level II trauma center set to open March 14 and a surgical suite with new technology to open March 13, according to a news release. A new critical care unit opens March 7 in the hospital's south tower.

David Claeys, president of Beaumont Hospital in Farmington Hills at 28050 Grand River Ave., called the project "ambitious" in the release. It broke ground in October 2016.

The health system highlighted new technology in its nine-room surgical suite, including robotics and touch screen displays.

Auto supplier to invest $17 million in new manufacturing center in Pontiac

Quote:
erae AMS USA Manufacturing LLC, a subsidiary of South Korea-based erae AMS Co. Ltd., which supplies driveline systems, chassis, and electronics systems and components, will create 137 jobs through the project, according to a Wednesday news release from the Michigan Economic Development Corp.

The supplier was awarded a $685,000 Michigan Business Development Program performance-based grant, which was green-lighted by the Michigan Strategic Fund.

The city of Pontiac, which was chosen over other sites in Indiana and Ohio, is backing the project with a 50 percent property tax abatement, the release says.
'Smart home' features, mechanical car lift among amenities set for luxury Royal Oak apartments

Quote:
Two developers are on track to inject more luxury living into Royal Oak's Main Street.

Birmingham-based Encore Development plans the 38-unit Elevate Luxury Apartments south of the main downtown and Howell-based LL Real Estate LLC's 65-unit Billings Place is set for the site where Billings Lawn Equipment was recently demolished.

Both are advertising their buildings as upscale with "smart" features and amenities.


Beaumont submits plan to build 117-bed hospital in Oxford

Quote:
Beaumont Health submitted a certificate-of-need application Feb. 1 to build a 117-bed, $140 million hospital in Oxford, an area the Michigan Certificate-of-Need Commission last September designated a "limited access area" because of a lack of beds within 30 minutes for patients.

A week earlier, Henry Ford Health System filed a CON letter of intent to build a 116-bed, $161.8 million hospital also in Oxford. But because Henry Ford did not file a formal application by the Feb. 1 deadline for the state's comparative review, Henry Ford will have to wait until June to file the application, giving it a slim possibility of winning approval, a state official said.

However, a Henry Ford Health spokesman said in an email to Crain's that the health system did file its certificate of need application by the Feb. 1 deadline. The system did not respond to requests for further information Tuesday night.

Over the past decade, Beaumont has wanted to build another medical-surgical hospital in northern or western Oakland County. A decision from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services is expected as early as June on the proposed new hospital, to be called Beaumont Hospital-Oxford.

While the rest of the area continues to develop in an exciting and urban fashion, Macomb County boasts of a plan for a new jail, millions of sq. feet of warehouse/ industrial, a giant golden butthole and a handful of new 3 over 1 ticky tacky hotels for every mile of Van Dyke. Not to mention the sprawling neighborhoods of popsicle stick mansions going up everywhere North of M-59. SMH

While I'd personally rather see these developments over nothing at all, it'd still be great to see more quality developments. I'm looking forward to the day that Mount Clemens is fully recognized for its potential and downtown becomes the urban center of Macomb County. There's so much potential there and nothing really happening.

First Parcel of Detroit House of Corrections in Plymouth Township Sold, Will be Developed into a Technology Business Park

Quote:
The first parcel, an eight-acre plot, of the former Detroit House of Corrections in Plymouth Township has been sold, according to the Michigan Land Bank Fast Track Authority.

“The sale of this property is yet another step forward in ensuring this once dilapidated property is put back into productive use for the Plymouth community,” says Josh Burgett, director of Michigan Land Bank. “DeHoCo has been an eyesore in the area for years, and with demolition work wrapped up, we’re excited to see the addition of a new development project that will bring a wealth of revenue and jobs to the area.”

The Michigan Land Bank acquired the former correctional facility, known as DeHoCo, in 2015 and has been working with local leaders through the demolition and purchasing process.


GM to Invest $300M, Add 400 Jobs at Orion Assembly for New Chevrolet EV

The new vehicle will be designed and engineered from an advanced version of the current Bolt EV architecture. Additional product information and timing for the new vehicle will be released closer to production, GM says.

Summit Place Mall redevelopment gets $12.9 million in brownfield financing

Quote:
The $63 million redevelopment of Summit Place Mall in Waterford Township has received $12.9 million in brownfield financing incentives.

The Michigan Strategic Fund board approved the financing Tuesday morning.

Demolition of the mall at Telegraph and Elizabeth Lake roads on the Waterford/Pontiac border is expected to begin next month, clearing the way for a 1 million-square-foot new development called the Oakland County Business Center. A briefing memo to the board says the developer, Southfield-based Ari-El Enterprises Inc., anticipates the creation of 2,183 permanent full-time-equivalent jobs paying $22.50 per hour on average.


Developers plan $150 million development, 850 jobs at old Ford Wixom plant site

Quote:
An Ohio-based company is planning a $150 million brownfield redevelopment of a former Ford Motor Co. plant in Wixom that would create 850 new jobs.

The project at the 182-acre site would reactivate the property with 1.66 million square feet of commercial/industrial space, according to the Michigan Economic Development Corp.

Construction on the first of seven warehouses at 29311 S. Wixom Road is expected to start in April; the project is estimated to be completed by December 2021.

The new development calls for six buildings totaling 1.34 million square feet on the north part of the site and one 320,000-square-foot building on the south portion.

I used to work out in Wixom a few years ago. The traffic in that area is quickly pushing the capacity of the infrastructure during rush hour and it seems like every available plot of land is being developed. Wouldn't be surprised to see a huge increase in infrastructure spending in the next few years for that area or at least that is what should happen (this being Michigan, can't be entirely sure).
