M1 Concourse Groundbreaking

M1 Concourse Officially Under Construction

The team was on site in support of the M1 Concourse official groundbreaking ceremony and helped kick off the construction of this world-class automotive enthusiast destination. This historic 87 acre site on Woodward Avenue at the entrance to the City of Pontiac will include over 250 private garages, restaurants, an auto-focused shopping village, office space and exhibition areas.

“I am excited to witness the start of construction and look forward to Phase I completion in Spring 2016,” said Brad Oleshansky, the Founder and CEO of M1 Concourse. “We’ve gotten off to a fantastic start and are already receiving significant interest in our Phase 2 Private Garages, as well as companies seeking to rent the M1 Performance Track for testing, training and marketing purposes.”

“The revitalization of our communities is an important part of Michigan’s comeback,” Gov. Rick Snyder said. “This new complex will bring expanded business opportunities and economic activity to Pontiac while creating a place where residents and visitors alike can enjoy a different aspect of our state’s historic connection to the automotive industry.”
