GAINES TOWNSHIP, Mich. — New business developments are starting to be announced near the site of the Switch pyramid.

NAI Wisinski facilitated the sale of two stretches of vacant land that are expected to evolve into new hotels.

The land was sold to Grand Hospitality Management, who intend to build a Holiday Inn Express and a Marriott Hotel. Both of these buildings will sit on the east side of Broadmoor Avenue between 52nd and 60th Street.

The Holiday Inn Express is going to be located on 5.47 acres at 4888 Town Center Drive. The Marriott will rest on 2.76 acres at 4834 Town Center.

The Switch SUPERNAP Data Center – formerly known as the Steelcase Pyramid – is a major reason for the development of these hotels, says NAI Wisinski.

The ground-breaking for each hotel is anticipated to begin in 2017.
