  • Certified Business Parks

    Tenants know that they’ll find uniformity and high-quality characteristics within certified parks and that their investment in that property is secure. The parks are shovel-ready, so location is easy.

    Locating within a Michigan Certified Business Park ensures the availability of utilities ready for tap-in, access via all weather roads, a guaranteed site plan, and protective covenants – such as requirements for aesthetically pleasing buildings, appropriate signage and landscaping – that enhance the quality appearance of the park and help maintain property values.

    In addition, if the Certified Business Park is located in a Land Development Financing Act (LDFA) Authority, tax increment financing can be used to pay for public infrastructure.
