Plymouth Council to Consider Four Seasons Redevelopmenton on November 12th

In the Community

The Plymouth City Council will once again consider a mixed-use redevelopment project for the vacant Four Seasons Mall site at its Tuesday, Nov. 12, meeting, after the Plymouth Planning Commission’s recommendation for approval.

The commission unanimously voted at its Oct. 29 meeting to recommend a planned unit development amendment and preliminary plat for the proposed project along Lancaster Lane and off Rockford Road and Highway 169.

Commissioner Brian Oakley said the 17 acres is a challenging site, but that he thinks the plans are a good use which will ultimately replace the vacant Four Seasons Mall.

“To me, it’s a horrible message for Plymouth to have people drive through our community and see a strip mall that has been abandoned,” Oakley said.

Shawn Drill, senior city planner, presented the plans for the property, which has been vacant for about eight years. He noted the previous failed redevelopment plans from Walmart (the current owner) and the Agora project. The latter was a mixed-use development, that the council approved in 2017, that failed to materialize because the developer was unable to secure financing for the project.

Now, Dominium Development is proposing to build three apartment buildings – two general/family apartment buildings totaling 163 units and a senior apartment building with 255 units. The plans also include four commercial buildings, totaling 23,300 square feet and a 229-stall park-and-ride ramp.
