A $60 million project that will feature garage condominiums along a 2.2-mile European-design driving circuit is getting underway in Michigan.
The developer of an "automotive country club" called Motorsports Gateway Howell says 75 percent of the 92 garage condos are reserved and that it aims to have the track ready for members to drive on by next summer.
A group of private investors is paying for the 273-acre project, which will have an automotive innovation business park, mixed-use zone for retail, entertainment and restaurants, and public nature trail.
"The idea that a new state-of-the-art track, that can have multiple configurations, is going to be so close to home is fantastic," Vince Messina, a founding garage condo owner, said in a statement.
Most amenities will be restricted to members, but the public will be able to access the automotive innovation business park as well as restaurants and retail areas.
