For decades, it’s been a pretty nondescript stretch of road in southern Oakland County, but that could all change on West 11 Mile.
Rebecca Golden writes in the Detroit Free Press:
An industrial stretch of 11 Mile Road in southeast Oakland County could be reinvented into one of the region’s newest entertainment districts with restaurants, breweries, new housing and retail.
Oak Park, Berkley and Huntington Woods, which border 11 Mile from Woodward Avenue west to Greenfield, are teaming up to see how rezoning, reducing traffic lanes and becoming an easier place to walk and bicycle could help lure redevelopment to the corridor.
Already, River Rouge Brewing Co. of Royal Oak has plans to open a second location on 11 Mile and Gardner in Oak Park, and Drought recently revamped an old building on 11 Mile and Henley in Berkley into its new juicing production facility.
