Kensington Church looks to build Bloomfield campus at Detroit Country Day site
The Troy-based nondenominational church is under contract to purchase the private school’s Bloomfield Village Campus at Lahser and Maple roads, said Melissa Thwing, spokeswoman for Kensington Church.
The school is replacing that campus, consisting of a 36,000-square-foot building on 3.5 acres of property, with a $30 million expansion at its middle school at 22400 Hillview Lane in Beverly Hills.
The new campus would be its fifth permanent one. Others are in Troy, Clinton Township, Lake Orion and Traverse City.
The new campus would be funded through Kensington’s three-year, $30 million capital campaign that ended in March. It was unclear if the campaign goal was met. The same campaign funded the 61,000-square-foot worship center in Clinton Township.
Downtown Publications reported Friday that many community members voiced opposition to the plan during a public hearing Tuesday. Traffic flow, noise and parking were among the concerns of neighbors.
The publication reported that Kensington plans to work with Novi-based Cunningham-Limp Development Co. on the project, as it did with its previous development. The historic building on the campus would be preserved, and construction costs could reach $6 million.
