Farmington officials approve courthouse property agreement

In fairly quick order, Farmington city officials on Monday approved a Planned Unit Development (PUD) agreement that will bring 14 new single-family homes to the former 47th District Courthouse site on 10 Mile Road between Raphael and Elizabeth Court.

Farmington Hills-based Boji Development, doing business as Ten Mile Development, purchased the property in November of 2017 and plans to build ranch and colonial houses, ranging in size from 1700 to 2800 square feet. And people are already calling about them, Joseph Boji said.

This is one example of the floor plans proposed by Ten Mile Development for the courthouse property.

Unoccupied for a dozen years, the property sits just north of the Farmington Public School bus garage. The agreement requires the developer to maintain access to that site. An easement agreement with the district that covers an existing asphalt drive will be vacated and the area landscaped.

“This has been long process, an important process,” Mayor Pro Tem Sara Bowman said. “We really appreciate that you took the time. We held out for a project that fit the neighborhood.”
