3045 Broad Street Redevelopment

3045 Broad Street Redevelopment

The Dexter DDA and City of Dexter collectively own four parcels in the Downtown.  The four parcels measure approximately 3 acres (total), northwest of Main Street, between Grand and Forest Streets, and directly front onto the City’s award winning Mill Creek Park. These parcels include 3045 Broad Street, and three vacant lots (8077-8087 Forest Street and 8090 Grant Street).  The 3045 Broad Street property surrounds a DTE substation on 3 sides.  The DDA/City and DTE are finalizing an agreement to decommission the sub-station and transfer of ownership of the property from DTE to the City. Hence, this property will be included in the redevelopment project area. Click here for a map of the entire development project area.

This project area has great residential, retail and office potential due to its location overlooking Mill Creek and Mill Creek Park, not to mention its close proximity to downtown Dexter.  In November 2017, the City entered into a pre-development agreement with Norfolk Development to redevelop the property the City owns at 3045 Broad.
