MARKET OVERVIEW

DESIRABLE TRAFFIC COUNTS The Ford Road Corridor benefits from convenient regional access and significant exposure from the Interstate 275 corridor. Ford Road is a major east-west thoroughfare through Canton Township, Westland and Dearborn. Ford Road also intersects with, and has access to Interstate 275 in the eastern portion of the Ford Road Retail District. Businesses in the Ford Road Retail District benefit from the high average daily traffic volumes on Ford Road and Interstate 275. In 2010, the average daily traffic count on Ford Road immediately east of Interstate 275 (east boundary of Ford Road Retail District) was 47,177 vehicles (reported by MDOT). This traffic count was similar to the 47,558 average daily cars west of Interstate 275 (0.1 mile east of Lilly Road). The average daily traffic along Interstate 275 north of Ford Road is 118,000 vehicles and 98,100 vehicles south of Ford Road. This is significant exposure to the Ford Road Retail District.

MARKET OVERVIEW

MARKET ASSESSMENT In 2013, Canton Township conducted a detailed market assessment with a team of consultants to determine what the current market condition is within Canton and the surrounding region, and to identify opportunities and gaps within the marketplace. Through this analysis, Canton was able to identify specific target markets that would fill the gaps and be attracted to existing developable sites within the Township. The study examined two commercial corridors within the Township: the Ford Road Corridor and the Michigan Avenue Corridor. Each corridor is distinct in its character and mix of businesses but share one common identity; there is real economic opportunity to continue to develop these areas into high-quality prosperous areas of commerce. Retail development potential in the Ford Road Retail District and Michigan Avenue Corridor is based on an analysis of existing retail businesses and available space within each area, as well as a demographic and economic analysis of the EMA. A field survey of existing retail within the Ford Road Retail District and Michigan Avenue Corridor was conducted.

The following analyses have been conducted to identify market support for retail in the Ford Road and Michigan Avenue Retail Districts: • Economic and demographic analysis • Analysis of traffic patterns • Location of existing retail outside of the Ford Road and Michigan Avenue Districts • Interviews with local real estate and planning professionals • Interviews with area business owners and managers • Personal observations by a consulting team of market and development specialists • Analysis of consumer spending patterns in the EMA • Analysis of retail sales in the Ford Road Retail District and Michigan Avenue Corridor as well as the balance of the EMA

A 157 square-mile market area Effective Market Area (EMA) refers to a methodology to describe areas of similar economic and demographic characteristics. The EMA is the smallest area expected to contain the greatest concentration (60% to 70%) of support for most development. The EMA for Canton Township is approximately 157 square miles. EMA boundaries were selected for Canton Township based on a field analysis and interviews with area real estate, planning and housing professionals and business owners. The EMA for both the Ford Road Retail District and the Michigan Avenue Corridor includes Canton Township, Plymouth, Livonia, Garden City and Westland. The EMA also includes parts of Plymouth Township, Inkster, Van Buren Township, Romulus, Superior Township and Ypsilanti Township. Specifically, the EMA is bound by State Route 14 and Interstate 96 to the north, Inkster Road to the east, Interstate 94 to the south, and Ecorse Road/State Route 17 and Prospect Road to the west.

MARKET ASSESSMENT

FORD ROAD RETAIL DISTRICT - HOME OF IKEA CORRIDOR DESCRIPTION This corridor is a naturally occurring shopping district anchored by IKEA and home to 319 retail stores, totalling 3.5 million square feet of retail.

DISPOSABLE INCOME AND CONSUMER EXPENDITURES (TABLE 2) Consumers expenditures exceed $86 billion within the EMA.

The Ford Road Retail District is an area located in the north central portion of Canton Township. The Ford Road Retail District is 3.4 miles long and consists of the area along Ford Road between the Canton Township line to the east and Interstate 275 to the west.

There are three distinct market areas within Canton. This includes the entire market area, a transient traffic market area defined by pass through traffic, and the occasional traffic market area that is defined by those visiting the area on a less frequent basis.

The Ford Road Retail District is one of two primary commercial corridors within the Township and draws local, transient and regional traffic. The corridor is also home to many national retailers.

The retail expenditures within the EMA is $3.5 billion. The total retail expenditures in the transient traffic market area are $18.3 billion and the occasional traffic market area has total retail expenditures of $86.2 billion.

RETAIL ANALYSIS MIX (TABLE 1) In 2013, estimated retail sales within the Ford Road Retail District were $316.5 million among 195 retail stores, estimated sales in the Canton EMA were nearly $3.1 billion among 2,492 retail stores.

MARKET POTENTIAL (TABLE 3)

Within the Ford Road Retail District, there are 251 existing businesses within 80 different categories. The corridor has an 8.4% vacancy rate that could be used for retail.

Within the EMA in 2010, the estimated total retail expenditures of $3.5 billion were greater than total sales, representing a net drain of $476 million. The $476 million gap between total expenditures and sales indicates that consumers within the EMA spend more money at retail stores outside the EMA than within the EMA. This is also an indication that the area could attract additional retailers to capture the retail drain. A significant amount of demand is not being met within the EMA at:

There are also 45 non-retail businesses within the Ford Road Retail District. These include such businesses as banks, medical offices, real estate offices and two animal hospitals.

The current retail gap represents an opportunity for new retail to capture a share of a market that is spending $476 million outside of the EMA.

• gasoline stations ($168 million gap) • food and beverage stores ($87.8 million gap) • clothing and clothing accessories stores ($71.5 million gap)

• motor vehicle and parts dealers ($66.7 million gap)

Table 2 - Disposable Income and Retail Expenditures

• food services and drinking places ($40.5 million gap)

FORD ROAD COMPETES ON A NATIONAL RETAIL STAGE (TABLE 4)

The Ford Road Retail District is a shopping district with a mix of businesses that compete on a national stage. A good basis of comparison is the Easton Town Center in Columbus, Ohio, which is an established town center style shopping mall that contains a mixture of retail stores that attract shoppers from a region-wide area. The Easton development is exceptionally successful and is widely known and highly regarded among retail professionals. The Ford Road Retail District oupaces and outperforms the Easton development in nearly every category.

MARKET ASSESSMENT

MICHIGAN AVENUE - CROSSROADS TO THE UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN AND DETROIT METRO AIRPORT CORRIDOR DESCRIPTION The Michigan Avenue Retail District is defined as a neighborhood or convenience retail area well suited to attract convenience retailers, unique retailers and larger format regional retailers. The Michigan Avenue Retail District is an area located in the southern portion of Canton Township. The Michigan Avenue Retail District is 4.2 miles long and consists of the area along Michigan Avenue between Hannan Road (Canton Township line) to the east and Beck Road to the west. The Michigan Avenue Retail District also includes Geddes Road north of Michigan Avenue. Although the Michigan Avenue Retail District has a variety of existing retail stores, the area generally cannot be categorized as a sub-regional shopping district. The Michigan Avenue Retail District is better defined as a neighborhood

or convenience retail area (e.g. Target, Meijer, or Walmart), rather than a destination retail district.

RETAIL ANALYSIS MIX (TABLES 1 AND 2) In 2010, estimated retail sales within the Michigan Avenue Retail District were $60.1 million among 57 stores. Within the Michigan Avenue Retail District, there are 96 existing businesses within 36 different categories. In 2013, there were 7 vacant spaces that could be used for retail, resulting in a 7.3% vacancy rate for retail. There were also 26 non-retail businesses within the Michigan Avenue Retail District. These include businesses such as banks, tax and financial offices, insurance offices, a learning center and medical offices, including an urgent care.

Well suited to grow convenience retail The Michigan Avenue Retail District is better defined as a neighborhood or convenience retail area rather than a destination retail district. However, Michigan Avenue is well suited for other development such as medical offices or businesses, office buildings, education and an auto mall and auto-related business, as well as mixed-use developments.

WHERE IS THE DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITY? Two primary commercial corridors within Canton contain numerous opportunities to grow your storefront, business, company or rooftop. The Township has identified five undeveloped or underdeveloped areas with high-profile locations within the community that have great potential for new development. Collectively they represent opportunities for residential, retail, office, light industrial and warehousing and automotive sales.

THE FOUR POTENTIAL DEVELOPMENT AREAS ARE: 1. FORD ROAD AREA 1 TOWN CENTER INSPIRED RETAIL HUB 2. FORD ROAD AREA 2 MIXED-USE CENTER IN THE HEART OF IT ALL 3. FORD ROAD AREA 3 FREEWAY-ORIENTED DEVELOPMENT WITH A MIX OF USES 4. MICHIGAN AVENUE AREA 1 FLEXIBLE TECH CENTER WITH OPPORTUNITIES TO GROW 5. MICHIGAN AVENUE AREA 2 AUTOMOTIVE SALES WITH HIGHLY VISIBLE OUTPARCELS

We’ve done the heavy lifting In an effort to advance the development of these five potential development areas in the community, the Township has conducted a market assessment to understand what uses these areas can support. Taking it one step further, concept development plans were prepared that demonstrate the general vision for each development area, the target users based on market demand and the site capacity that maximizes development potential of the site.
