Michigan’s first fully municipally permitted cannabis business park will break ground at the 25-acre Oakland Business Park located in Orion Township on Tuesday.  

Growers, processors, secure transporters, and safety compliance tenants have pre-signed leases. The three-building, 288,000-square-foot complex, to be completed by the end of the year, is 75-percent occupied.  

The $40-million development is expected to create hundreds of new jobs in Orion Township in a safe and secure environment for commercial cannabis operations.

The cannabis business park, which is under the umbrella of the Oakland Business Park, is the product of several local investors, attorneys, and cannabis industry consultants who have worked with its tenants throughout the entire process.  

As a virtual one of a kind development, the various cannabis business licensees will be able to work together as part of one campus.  

The development is supported by Orion Township, including Township Supervisor Chris Barnett, along with members of the Township board, planning commission, and other municipal departments.  

To provide ample power, DTE is building an on-site substation with two 13.2 KV circuits.  

The Oakland Business Park is located at 163 Premier Drive. The groundbreaking will be held from noon to 2 p.m. Tuesday.
