The 53-acre property sold for $8.5 million according to the township – with proceeds divided on a 60/40 basis with the state.

The plans for the property at Five Mile and  Beck Roads include single family, townhouse and loft style residential homes together with retail and restaurant uses.

According to Northville Township Supervisor, Robert Nix II, once completed, the new build will bring a steady stream of revenue to the township in the range of $2 million annually.

The Township’s net proceeds of nearly $5,000,000 will be applied toward the continued demolition and remediation of the State’s former psychiatric facility located in the Township on 7 Mile Road west of Haggerty Road.
