There is a buzz going on in Mount Clemens. All you need to do is read your newspaper or walk down the street to see it. Dubbed by the local business media as “embracing the dual roles of office by day and entertainment by night” the interest by investors in Mount Clemens isn’t new, but the momentum sure is building.
As the County seat of Macomb, Mount Clemens is filled daily with more than 1,000 county employees, features a satellite campus of Oakland University, is situated on the Clinton River, boasts numerous entertainment and dining venues, and hosts events throughout the year including annual fireworks, the Lets Move Festival of Races, art fairs and other top draw events.
It’s no wonder investors are taking notice. There’s a lot to like about what’s going on in “the Clem”.
Recently, one of the downtown’s flagship properties, the old Macomb Daily Building, was purchased by a developer. Opportunities remain to invest in the Macomb Music Theater (formerly the Emerald) and there are more than 16 properties and that are getting the city a second look from outside investors.
To keep up with the demand, the Macomb County department of Planning and Economic Development is convening a group of investors to participate in a walking tour of the downtown on July 15th. The planning committee for the event is joins stakeholders from across the community: County Executive Mark Hackel’s Office, the Mt. Clemens Downtown Development Authority, the City of Mount Clemens, and several real estate agents and brokers hoping to draw attention and potential suitors to the downtown. Together, this group will lead an afternoon tour through the downtown attended by the regions prominent development offices.
