Farmington Hills City Hall gets $8M renovation

Farmington Hills City Hall is getting an $8 million face-lift.

Excerpt:

City Hall is getting a much-needed face-lift. The revitalization and expansion of the aging facility is well under way, making it more user and environmentally friendly.

The $8 million project kicked off in June with the demolition of the original two-story section built in the 1950s that had become dilapidated, City Manager Steve Brock said.

Plans call for increasing the 38,000-square-foot structure to 50,000 square feet with an expansion near the intersection of Orchard Lake Road and 11 Mile.

“We had to do something. We have an old dilapidated building here that’s been added on kind of hodgepodge. It’s not very energy efficient with 14 different heating and cooling systems, and only one door is handicapped accessible,” Brock said. “If we view ourselves as a world-class city we ought to have a facility that reflects that.”
