The major story of Bloomfield therefore is not in the shadowy past when the pioneers discovered its gentle hills and fair lakes, but in the discovery by bright young families of what it has to offer as a beautiful place to live.

About the Area

And although you’ll feel a million miles away from it all, Turtle Lake positions you just minutes from downtown Birmingham, Oakland International Airport and exquisite shopping at the Somerset Collection.

Bloomfield Township, a predominantly residential community, is known for its rich history, fine homes, private lakes and rolling topography. While construction may have slowed in many Oakland County areas, Bloomfield Township is seeing significant development. This, along with other amenities, continues to make Turtle Lake the most desirable community to call home.

A drive through the Township will reveal several sites of new commercial development. The Township is proud to highlight the following additions to our business community:

LA Fitness is located on the site of the previous Frank’s Nursery, just south of Carl’s Golf Land. The fitness center boasts racquetball courts, a pool, a second story basketball court, modern gym amenities and a child’s play area. This new two-story structure has been a welcome addition to the community and helps vitalize the Telegraph Road business corridor. The fitness center opened in May 2008.

Sunrise Assisted Living

A Sunrise Assisted Living facility has been recently constructed on the site of the former Birmingham Farms apartment buildings. This development will closely match the existing Sunrise Assisted Living facility located north of Square Lake Road in regard to floor plans, site amenities, and building design. The thee-story building will house 80 resident units, lobby, parlor, dining rooms, kitchen, lounge, library and other amenities. The new Sunrise Assisted Living facility abuts the Bloomfield Plaza Shopping Center and allows for pedestrian traffic between the two parcels. The building is projected to open in February 2009.

The new Target store at Telegraph and Square Lake Roads recently opened its doors for business on October 8, 2008. This unique Target building employs stone, brick and innovative building materials for a stately appearance. Also unique is the two-story construction that will provide for parking beneath the building, shielding customers from inclement weather. The turn-arounds within the Telegraph Road median have also been reconfigured to improve traffic circulation.

Smart Center Bloomfield

1765 Telegraph

The new Smart Car dealership is located on the site of the former Toyota dealership. The existing building was extensively modified to provide for an updated, sleek appearance. In the process, the building also obtained LEED certification. LEED certified buildings are constructed to be more efficient, minimize pollution and environmental impacts and are healthier places for people to occupy. The dealership also serves as the North American headquarters for Smart Car.

Bloomfield Market Place

Bloomfield Market Place, just north of Carl’s Golf Land, has received a facelift as well. The building has been updated with a new brick façade, awnings and rooftop elements. Biggby Coffee has been open since October 2008, complete with drive-through service and an outdoor patio. A Subway restaurant will be coming to the plaza this spring.

Costco Warehouse, directly across the street from Target, demolished its store in May 2008 to make room for a larger Costco on the same site. The new Costco is almost 30,000 square feet larger and provides a wider selection of merchandise. The warehouse now compliments the recently constructed Costco gas station. The layout of the new building provides for over 100 additional parking spaces as well as improves the traffic circulation within the shopping plaza. The Telegraph Road median in front of the new Target and Costco stores will also be re-landscaped. This upgrade in landscaping will coincide with the respective developments as part of the Telegraph Road beautification project. The warehouse opened in November 2008 and is one of their most successful stores in the country.

On the Opening day of the new Costco at Square Lake and Telegraph grossed $1million in sales...the best opening day ever for any Costco in the Midwest!

Mercedes-Benz Dealership

The Mercedes-Benz dealership on Woodward Avenue has just completed a 1,000 square foot addition to their building. In the process, the façade of the building was revamped to create a sleek, modern appearance. Design elements include cultured stone, painted steel columns and a metal canopy and façade. The new building appearance is part of a national branding technique for Mercedes-Benz.
