Hazel Park, MI- The Hazel Park Zoning Board held a special meeting Wednesday to approve a height variance that will allow for a four story apartment building with ground level retail at the former CVS/Movie Mania location at 23722 John R.

The development will have approximately 30 apartments with a mix of studio, one bedroom and two bedroom.

“This is a game changer for Hazel park and the John R. corridor,” said City Councilperson Bethany Holland.

Downtown Development Authority Vice Chair Mike McFall is excited about the development.  “Our vision is to create a walkable pedestrian friendly downtown. This new mixed-use development will not only have retail and restaurant space in the lower level, it will also include apartments above. It will bring new residents into our city, and they will be able to walk or bike to local restaurants or shops. John R will be undergoing the street diet this year as well. this project fits perfectly into our vision of a pedestrian friendly John R,” he said.

Work on the site should begin shortly, with a target date of spring 2020 for completion.
