Oaks Centre; Novi
Located: Grand River, West of Haggerty
At the time Jonathan Brateman Properties listed the vacant land
parcel, the northern 2.5 acres was zoned NCC, an ordinance unique
to Novi, MI. This ordinance needed to be focused and fine-tuned
to be able to make the parcel more marketable. Jonathan Brateman
worked closely with the Planning Department and the City Council
to rewrite the ordinance to keep its original spirit, and at the
same time allow for development. Jonathan Brateman worked out a
compromise to meet the needs of both the property owner and the
city. As a result of the changes a developer bought the property,
and today, the attractive Grand Oaks Centre complex is located on
the property. Jonathan Brateman not only sold the land for the complex
but completed the leasing of the building for the landlord as well.
Currently, the complex is filled with professional uses and a restaurant
which all provide quality services to the community.
Yoga; Bloomfield Twp
Located: Southeast corner Maple and Lahser
It was Kathy Lucas’s dream to open her own yoga studio, as
she was already a well accomplished yoga instructor. Even though
she already had a particular location in mind, she enlisted the
services of Jonathan Brateman Properties at the recommendation of
a friend. Jonathan Brateman was the right person to assist Kathy
Lucas in interpreting the zoning of the property she had in mind.
After researching the original consent judgment of the property,
Jonathan Brateman provided a professional presentation to the Bloomfield
Township Planning Department. As a result, Kathy Lucas was able
to receive a positive recommendation from the municipality on her
business compliance with the existing zoning. Kathy Lucas’s
studio, Karma Yoga, is now one of the premier yoga studios in the
metropolitan area. With the assistance of Jonathan Brateman, Kathy
Lucas’s dream and wish were both achieved.
