PEA has assisted numerous big box stores in expanding their Michigan operations through our land development focused professional services. We have completed site design for 8 Home Depot projects throughout Michigan, including the Upper Peninsula. Working with the Home Depot Corporation as well as land developers and property owners, PEA developed new retail sites on many challenging properties. Due to the size and volume of parking required for Home Depot, PEA has utilized creative stormwater management solutions to accommodate the runoff for the large buildings and parking lots while making economic use of the limited land available for each development.

From 1990 – 2004, PEA acted as a strategic partner to the Real Estate|Design|Construction Departments at Kmart Corporation working on more than 400 stores nationwide. These developments required the creative solving of meeting parking requirements, providing landscape architecture which is acceptable to the community and within corporate requirements, maintaining adequate accessible parking, advantageous building positioning to maximize visibility and managing the permitting and review process to meet the clients store open target date.

Currently under construction, is the redevelopment of the former Redford High School site in the City of Detroit. The proposed 25-acre development will consist of a 200,000 sf Meijer supercenter, 10,000 sf retail | restaurant strip center, gas station and Detroit Police Precinct.
