Commerce Township leaders approved a plan last week for a $100 million retail and entertainment district.
"Five & Main", a 350,000-square-foot center, would be located on the corner of Pontiac Trail and M-5 east of Martin Parkway. It would be the first major retail center in the area since Partridge Creek opening in Macomb County in 2007.
According to a plan, "Five & Main," designed by Robert B. Aikens and Associates, would have more than 78,000 square feet of entertainment, 82,000 square feet of restaurants, 30,000 square feet of specialty food and beverage, 92,000 square feet of fashion, and 36,000 square feet each for wellness & beauty and home. There will be more than 1,600 parking spaces.
According to Crain's Detroit Business , Aikens is in talks to bring a movie theater and gourmet market as anchor retailers, with hopes to get 60-70 percent of the space leased to secure financing for the roject.
