Development at ex-Kmart HQ gets tax breaks

May 20, 2008

The proposed Pavilions of Troy mixed-use retail and residential project got a boost today when the State of Michigan approved tax incentives for the project.

In addition, the state approved brownfield tax credits for two projects in Detroit. One would create a 90,000-square-foot shopping center near Warren and Livernois. The other would create a 10,000-square foot commercial-retail building near Cass and Warren on the former site of a gas station near Wayne State University.


The most visible of the various projects is the one in Troy, where the Pavilions project is slated to rise on the site of the former Kmart headquarters on Big Beaver Road. Under the approval announced Tuesday, the City of Troy will use state and local tax incentives worth $13.2 million to support the new $320-million Pavilions project on the 40-acre Kmart site.

The projects are expected to create more than 1,000 jobs combined and generate more than $334 million in investment.
