Detroit Axle (2000 W. 8 Mile Road) has proposed a warehouse expansion that would connect to their recently renovated headquarters. The expansion plans include over 150,000 square feet of manufacturing and warehouse space, as well as future office space. The applicant has requested site plan approval and will appear on the Planning Commission agenda at the July 17, 2019 meeting.
The Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) has been working with Detroit Axle to comply with the requirements for environmental cleanup of the site. This includes continued sampling and monitoring, as well as the development of a remediation work plan. The work plan is anticipated to be submitted to EGLE by early 2022. If any changes to that schedule occur, the City will update all information to reflect any new information. As far as the City is aware, Detroit Axle has been working to meet the deadlines set forth by EGLE regarding various compliance steps. These cleanup requirements apply to the entire site, run with the property, and are the responsibility of the property owner to address before any development can occur. At this time there is no indication that there is any public health threat. However, if any such issues arises, the City will ensure to notify the community immediately.
