3045 Broad Street

3045 Broad Street site mapThe Dexter DDA and City of Dexter collectively own four parcels in the Downtown.  The four parcels measure approximately 3 acres (total), and is located northwest of Main Street, between Grand and Forest Streets, with frontage directly 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.

Community Engagement Workshop #4: A Unique and Distinctly Dexter Experience
The 4th Community Engagement Workshop was held on Tuesday, July 10, 2018, at the Dexter District Library.  Building upon feedback received during the 3 previous Community Engagement Workshop's, the Norfolk Team presented its layout concept, along with more refined scale and massing designs, for the 3045 Broad Street project.  The concept focuses on a providing a unique and distinctly Dexter pedestrian experience; a mix of residential, retail, commercial and office uses; enhanced connection with Mill Creek Park and the natural environment; and underground parking.  Detailed architectural plans were not included in the presentation, as they have not been finalized.  In addition, those are details to be worked out with the Planning Commission, during the site plan review process.  The Norfolk Team will take the next 30 to 45 days to work on a pro-forma for the project.  It's anticipated that the Norfolk Team will present its pro-forma to the 3045 Broad Street Committee, in late August or early September.
