Troy, located 20 minutes north of Detroit and 30 miles north of
Metro Detroit Airport, is corporate headquarters of Kmart and Ameritech Advertising. This
city has over 10 million square feet of office space, 17 million square feet of industrial
space and two successful malls which draw shoppers from all over the Detroit Metro Area.
The mix of new housing ranges from $100,000 to $600,000. The south
end of the city has older homes in compact city blocks. These are close to the industrial
parks and large shopping areas. The north end of the city has luxury homes of every
description in beautiful park-like subdivisions.
Troy's Planned Neighborhood Development Program allows for
subdivisions to protect the character and privacy of residential areas. Parks are
constructed within each subdivision, wherever possible. Schools are located to minimize
children's crossing busy streets. The estimated population is approximately 75,000.
