The Northville Downs racetrack has been sold and will be turned into a mixed-use development. 

Hunter Pasteur Homes, a developer and luxury home builder, is under contract to purchase the racing track from the Northville Driving Club and the Carlo family. 

“This project is in the preliminary stages, and we’re eager to continue working with the City of Northville and our partners to iron out the numerous details that come with a project of this scale,” said Rand Wertheimer, president and CEO of Hunter Pasteur Homes. “We expect to have all entitlements in place in 2019. As more details become available, we will share them with the community.”

High-end rental apartments, townhomes and single-family homes, along with commercial space are expected to be built on the property, according to a press release from the developer. 

Operations at the Northville Downs racetrack will continue until development begins. Northvile Downs is also actively looking to continue horse racing in an area close in proximity to its current location.
