ZONING

Extensive Business, General Business, & Industrial (Overlay District)

 

Property Description

With approximately 70 acres of development potential, the Oakland County Business Center (OCBC) has ample room for build-to-suit sites for businesses in need of research and development, corporate offices, warehouses, distribution centers, light manufacturing, or flex-type space. The site lies within the Summit Place Overlay Zoning District, created to facilitate the redevelopment of the site by providing more flexible regulations (including permitted industrial uses) and simplifying the approval process. The site is strategically located in the center of Oakland County, with no mapped wetlands or floodplains on the site.

In 2023, the site underwent a comprehensive due diligence review through the VIP program, including a detailed site condition analysis, comprehensive information on utility providers and capacity, and a comprehensive report on site details (full report in the document library below).
