TEC recently completed the construction materials testing and inspection work for the new 165,000 square foot Nordstrom store and the 60,000 square foot addition to the Macy’s store at Twelve Oaks Mall in Novi, MI.
Twelve Oaks Mall opened for business in 1977. The actual mall was first proposed for Farmington Township (now Farmington Hills) on Haggerty Road and Thirteen Mile. However, opposition from both Farmington Township and West Bloomfield Township caused developers to turn to Novi. The Novi property, which was an old gravel pit, was first proposed for use as a landfill until Novi residents opposed the plan. This made Novi the perfect site for the mall rejected by Farmington and West Bloomfield Townships.
