The University of Michigan Health System is scheduled to open a new two-story, $39 million, 100,000 square foot facility in Northville Township built by Phase I by contractor George W. Auch Company. The Northville Health Center located in the 7 Mile and Haggerty Road commercial corridor in Northville will open on July 15 and will offer and array specialty care in ophthalmology, radiology, adult and pediatric care and other outpatient services. A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held on July 7.
The second phase of the Northville Park Place project encompasses 22 acres and will be built by Sachse Construction, a commercial construction company based in Detroit. It will include 65,000 square feet of retail and restaurants scheduled for completion in mid-January 2015, with interior tenant build-outs occur- ring through the first quarter of 2015. The developers have also announced the names of the businesses that have already leased space at the site: Granite City Food & Brewery, Rusty Bucket, Sherwin Williams, Chipotle Mexican Grill, BurgerFi (which opened its first Michigan location in Ann Arbor last year), and Jimmy John’s. The list of retail and restaurant tenants is expected to be complete by mid- 2015.
Designed by Wah Yee Associates of Farmington Hills, Northville Park Place promises to be a standout from an aesthetic and experiential standpoint. The complex will include three individual ponds, each of them having its own floating fountain, and a unique elevated waterfall feature in the pond closest to the 7 Mile and Haggerty corner. Close to the ponds area, the complex will feature a paved plaza that will offer visitors an abundance of benches, outdoor seating and comfortable places to relax and socialize.
UMHS is partnering with Schostak Real Estate Investment Group to be the anchor tenant of Northville Park Place, an 82 acre development that was the former home of the Northville Psychiatric Hospital. Schostak purchased the parcel in 2007 from the State for $31.5 million after an at-times ugly legal battle. With the court decision. Schostak now owns the 82 acres and Northville Township was left with the remainder of the property, which includes the 20 vacant hospital buildings. During the turmoil, the City of Livonia tried unsuccessfully to annex the property. Schostak is now seeking tenants to fill the 80,000 square feet of planned retail space.
Audrey Fan MD, is the new facility medical director. Fan says U of M will partner with community and area physicians to offer the patient care for the facility. A physician open house is scheduled for July 10 from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m.
