HOWELL—An “automotive country club” is being developed on 270 acres in Howell, in an area bounded by I-96, Lucy Road, Grand River Avenue, and Michigan Avenue.
Developers Motorsports Gateway LLC say the complex will offer private garage condominiums and other amenities, along with an exclusive driving circuit where motorsports enthusiasts can push their cars to the limit with maximum safety.
The first phase of the development, now open for reservations, includes a 2.2-mile European-inspired road course that can be split into two circuits. A member pit lane clubhouse and modern garage condominiums surround the course. Owners can be a Garage Condo owner, a Drivers Club member, or both. See more details at www.motorsportsgateway.com. The layout above was taken from the company’s website.
The driving circuit will follow FIA (Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile) safety standards, following the contours and elevation changes of the land as it carves through the surrounding woods of the property. An automated digital marshaling system including electronic flag displays, CCTV, and numerous timing sectors will increase safety and timing data analysis capabilities. The circuit will be drivable by Summer 2023.
“It’s invigorating to work with people that feel the same passion as we do to build a unique destination for the city of Howell,” said Jordan Dick, a professional race driver who founded , Motorsports Gateway Howell. “This unique project is designed to immerse automotive enthusiasts in a thrilling motorsport experience.”
A limited number of garage condominiums will be built in a secure, gated community. Multiple units can also be purchased and combined into one larger unit. Each unit will be finished to a high standard with a sleek modern design, providing an upscale motorsport experience.
Every “garage condo” also includes an exterior balcony extending the full width of the unit, providing an expansive track-fronting view. Founding owners can expect to receive the keys to their condo by December 2022.
“As a born and raised Detroiter, I am absolutely thrilled to be taking on this assignment and we can’t wait to work with buyers to help them fulfil their dream of owning a piece of Real Estate at a track that they can count on utilizing for generations to come,” said Jeff Glover, owner, Jeff Glover & Associates and listing agent for the garage condos. “Owning a garage condo here isn’t just owning a garage, it’s owning an experience that will last a lifetime and we are proud to play a small part in it.”
Future development phases will include an automotive innovation park with dedicated circuit access as well as a social entertainment and event district.
Motorsports Gateway Howell will host an advance reservation event in early October. For information on this event, call Jeff Glover & Associates, (517) 969-1100 or email Taylor@LiveUnreal.com.
