"The building was 100% leased well in advance of occupancy. This reflects the premium quality of the building and its superb walkable location in Royal Oak." Etkin principal Douglas Etkin, discussing Etkin's 74,000 square foot luxury office building, set to open downtown in 2018.
Royal Oak Civic Center
A proposed public-private partnership between the City of Royal Oak and the Central Park Development Group, the Royal Oak Civic Center consists of five projects within and surrounding the current city hall site:
Construction of the medical center began in May 2018, and the building is expected to be completed in 2021. The 581 space 11 Mile parking structure is now open, and Royal Oak’s new city hall and police station are currently being constructed with anticipated occupancy in the summer of 2020. For more information and updates about the entire project, please visit RethinkRO.
Now open, the former Northwood Shopping Center at the southwest corner of Woodward Avenue and 13 Mile Road has brought a variety of new tenants to this $33 million development, including Wahlburgers, AKT Fitness, Brown Iron Brewery, New Order Coffee, Panera Bread, First Watch Daytime Cafe, X Golf, and Woodward Corner Market by Meijer, among others. The final piece of the development is a $23 million,128-room Hyatt House hotel, which will have apartment-style guestrooms with equipped kitchens for extended stays. It will break ground in Spring 2020.
Located at at 400 N. Main, the five story, 122-room Hyatt Place hotel opened on November 8, 2018. Regus, a flex office and co-working space, is located on the second floor.
The Icon on Main, a 91 unit luxury apartment complex adjacent to the hotel, has just completed construction.

Singh Development has just started construction of its $65 million, 245 luxury apartment and retail development located at the gateway to downtown Royal Oak. The 250,000 square-foot building will also include a cafe, business center, courtyard pool and fitness center, among other amenities.
In 2015, Royal Oak successfully completed its crowdfunding initiative to transform the worn-out Center Street pedestrian plaza into a state-of-the-art ‘smart park’ that will incorporate many elements, including Wi-Fi, charging stations, solar panels, touch-screen kiosks, and sustainable landscaping. The project, which utilized the Michigan Economic Development Corporation's Public Spaces Community Places program, is now open.
