Highland Park is a community rich in heritage. It is the birthplace of the Model T, mass production and the first paved mile of highway. Like many communities across America, Highland Park is discovering new possibilities as it reinvents itself in the post-industrial age. Over $300 million in new commercial, industrial and residential development has been invested in the city in the last decade, positioning Highland Park as a vibrant community for the future.
There are 300 businesses in Highland Park which benefit from the city's central location to metro Detroit. Highland Park boasts immediate access to three major expressways - the Chrysler (I-75), Lodge (M-10), and Davison (M-8) - as well as Woodward Avenue, Michigan's main street and National Scenic Byway, which runs through the city.
New commercial possibilities along Woodward allow businesses to join 35 other national and regional retailers successfully operating in thriving Highland Park Place and the Model T Plaza, national models of urban redevelopment.
