Revived development thriving in Bloomfield
The Village at Bloomfield, located along Telegraph Road north of Square Lake Road, is seeing solid progress in its redevelopment efforts, with a number of businesses under construction, the new Aldi open, and several new businesses – including a Planet Fitness – recently signed to open sometime this year, a representative from REDICO, the company which purchased the site, informed Bloomfield Township trustees at their meeting on Monday, January 14.
Tim McCafferty, vice president of construction at REDICO, provided a building update to trustees, letting them know that Aldi, a low-frill discount grocer is now open, and “they have been doing very good business,” he said.
A multi-tenant strip center located in front of Aldi's is scheduled to be completed sometime between May and July, he said, and they are currently working on securing tenants. Currently, Bliss Nails, located at Long Lake at Telegraph, will be opening a second location, and Sports Clips. McCafferty said they are looking to put in several restaurants and a Comcast customer service center.
A Hampton Inn Suites, to be located behind Henry Ford Medical Center, under construction, has its foundations going in, and is scheduled to open in January 2020.
In the rear of the development, a Menards “is doing well,” McCafferty said. He said they should be done with their construction in March, and open in June.
Across from Menards, they have a purchase agreement with Planet Fitness for a 35,000 square foot two-story fitness center. “We have been trying to get them in this complex for quite some time. We're really excited about them. They hope to be under construction by June and open by the end of the year.”
They are still looking for a senior living facility for the area, and apartments, 430 units of which are under construction by Ed Rose.
