Birmingham Bloomfield is comprised of six communities - Birmingham, Bloomfield Hills, Bloomfield Township, Bingham Farms, Beverly Hills and Franklin. It is a highly sought after area for shopping, living and investment. While the Birmingham Bloomfield community represents upscale living at the upper end of the Telegraph and Woodward Corridors in Oakland County, each community has its own individual personality.

Birmingham, with its central downtown shopping district, has a more urban quality with high-end retail, restaurants and varied housing options. Franklin gives a glimpse of the past with its quaint district of boutique shops and eateries, along with a neighboring cider mill. Bloomfield Hills has large homesteads in beautiful settings and a community of historic distinction – the Cranbrook Educational Community. Bingham Farms and Beverly Hills are mostly residential and serve as bedroom communities to Birmingham and Detroit. Both have areas of commerce, along Telegraph Road and Southfield Road. Bloomfield Township is more suburban with most of its residential areas in well maintained subdivisions, with retail along Telegraph Road and shopping areas at major intersections. These distinctive personalities lend themselves to a diverse blend of residents and lifestyles, which extends to the retail and restaurant offerings and to those who come to visit. Birmingham Bloomfield’s location also makes it convenient to the vast number of cultural and recreational assets that are available in Metro Detroit and Southeast Michigan. It does not matter if you are a long-time business or resident, or someone who just arrived. WELCOME TO BIRMINGHAM BLOOMFIELD! Enjoy!
