The Main Building
Work is well under way for a five-story mixed use building with 51 dwellings on the site of the former Main Art Theatre at the corner of Main St and 11 Mile Rd in downtown Royal Oak. It will offer commercial space for retail sales, restaurant, and offices.
The retail component is located on the first floor and is approximately 9,300 square feet with space facing both major roads. There is a full floor of Class A office space with an approximate 30,000 square foot floor plate. The top three floors are 51 residential units with square footage between 744-1,960 for lease.
The Main Art Theatre marquee will be restored and attached to the building and prominently displayed on the Main St façade as a wayfinding sign and provides a community connection. This project will complete the Planned Unit Development of the northeast corner of N Main St and 11 Mile Rd that was approved by the City in 2004.
