BLOOMFIELD (WWJ) – A huge project that stalled and was then demolished has now been reborn on the border of Bloomfield and Pontiac.
The development, called Village at Bloomfield, will be an 80-acre project on Telegraph Road just north of Square Lake Road.READ MORE: Kellogg's Being Sued Over Strawberry Pop-Tarts
The ruins of the previous development, which stalled in 2008, were cleared out over the past month to make way for the new development, led by Southfield-based Redico. Dale Wachowski, President and CEO of Redico, says the new project will include 430 apartments, a hotel, a two-story Menards, senior housing, and a medical business.
“We’re in discussions with three of those right now and it’s yet to be determined which one will emerge,” he said.READ MORE: Target To Open Store In Midtown Detroit
There will also be an opportunity for some recreation.
“It’s a beautiful site with some wetlands that we’ll be creating walking paths and really looking at that as a site amenity,” said Wachowski.MORE NEWS: City of Hamtramck To Handout Water Filters On Oct.26
In all, Wachoski expects the $180 million project to have shovels in the ground sometime in early 2018, with a completion date yet to be determined.
