Community life in Haslett is expected to see a boost this winter, thanks to the opening of the American House Meridian project on the corner of Haslett and Marsh roads.

Meridian Township Neighborhood and Economic Development Director Amber Clark said she is excited about a reinvigorated plaza bringing people together, similar to the scene in the area over 10 years ago.

“You could go and just hang out and eat and see your friends and see the community,” Clark said. “That’s exactly what we’re trying to bring back to that area.”

Clark said that ever since the anchor business on that corner — L&L Food Center — closed in 2011, the other tenants have slowly left, and the Haslett community has been vocal about wanting a place that provides public space, to “see and be seen.”

American House Meridian will be a mixed-use project, with commercial and retail businesses occupying the first floor and the three floors above consisting of 132 independent living units for residents ages 55 and older. Residents will be able to enjoy amenities such as a state-of-the-art theater and fitness center.

When the township talked to developers, it also stressed the need for free amenities and attractions open to the public.

“This is a unique way to handle the amenity spaces, sharing the features our residents enjoy with the Haslett community,” said Dale Watchowski, president and CEO of Redico, the Southfield-based owner and developer of the project. “We are very excited about the project and its potential in the Haslett and Meridian Township community.”
