FerndaleHaus Lofts

Downtown Ferndale, Michigan, is centered on the iconic intersection of Woodward and Nine Mile. It is a favorite local and regional destination, known for its shopping and entertainment, public art installations, intimate pedestrian alleys and micro parks, and inviting streetscapes. Town center serves as a vibrant hub for restaurants, shops, late night entertainment, sports bars, and trendy brew pubs.

Located right on Nine Mile, less than half a mile away from Woodward, a major redevelopment is underway. The site of a former Save-A-Lot grocery store and its adjacent surface parking lot are being developed into loft-style luxury apartments. PM Environmental performed a successful brownfield plan, financial consulting, and other environmental services for the project. The $14.9 million project will feature a 105,000 square-foot building with 90 apartments; 44 will be studios, 24 one-bedrooms, 20 two-bedrooms, and a pair of three-bedroom units. There will also be 5,000 square feet of retail space on the ground floor.

The brownfield plan was awarded $2.24 million in reimbursement credits, which went toward demolishing the former supermarket, asbestos abatement and infrastructure improvements. The new building will be in the heart of the city’s downtown space, taking up 1.22 acres of property, with a rear surface parking structure.

The apartments, which will be called FerndaleHaus Lofts, are currently up for lease and move-ins will start in January 2019. The project is set to be fully completed in March. Four full time jobs associated with residential management, sales and maintenance are anticipated to be created from the redevelopment, as well as approximately 10 full time jobs associated with the retail/office space. The development is anticipated to create approximately 50 temporary construction jobs.
