Premier is happy to be apart of the opening of The Boulevard, a $60 million mixed-use development building that opened its doors in the New Center area Thursday morning. Formerly a surface lot, The Platform, the developer transformed the space into available housing, retail space, and an attached 330 space parking structure managed by Premier.

The Boulevard, located at Third Avenue and West Grand Boulevard, consists of 356,000 square-feet, including231 apartment units and 17,500 square feet of retail space. The Platform, Mayor Mike Duggan, Premier, and many other supporters took part in the ribbon cutting event to celebrate it’s opening in the large courtyard.

“We’re very proud of the finished product that we have here,” said The Platform’s CEO, Peter Cummings. “We took a surface lot that we bought from Henry Ford Health System and we’ve turned it into a productive property with new housing, retail and well-concealed parking.” Cummings noted his company has invested about $500 million so far in the four neighborhoods within the district.

Premier is excited to be associated with the ripple effects of this new development and can’t wait to see what’s next as the New Center area continues to grow in popularity!
