Add 3075 Baker Road to the list of new developments now under construction in the city of Dexter.

Motorists and other passersby have probably noticed over the past couple weeks the work going on along Baker at this address. The site, which has been basically vacant, is located on the west side of Baker Road, between Forest and Grand Streets, and abuts a public alley. The landowner/development applicant is named Allison Green and the plan was first presented to the city in 2018.

According to Michelle Aniol, Dexter’s community development manager, 3075 is now in the early stages of becoming a live/work or mixed use-commercial and residential-development.

The Sun Times News reached out to Green, but she declined to comment at this time.

Aniol said the plan consists of the demolition of an existing garage, and construction of three live-work units, which would be in three separate buildings.

According to the original plan submitted to the city, the primary use of the site would be to provide specialized physical therapy services for those in need. Examples of clients or patients include accident victims, Parkinson’s disease patients, and professional athletes.

The two buildings fronting on Baker are proposed to be two stories with commercial on the street level and residential above.

Looking at other parts of the design, Aniol said an underground stormwater detention system, designed to infiltrate a two-year storm event and detain a 25-year storm event, will be put in to handle the proposed increased density on the site. She said there will also some landscaping, lighting, and other required site improvements.

“Buildings #1 and #2 are to be constructed in phase one, and building #3 is proposed to be constructed at some point in the future,” Aniol said.
