by Kristin Harlow

WATERFORD TOWNSHIP, MICH. — Dominion Real Estate Advisors has arranged the sale of the former Summit Place Mall in Waterford Township near Pontiac. Southfield, Mich.-based commercial real estate development and investment company Ari-El Enterprises acquired the property from California-based SD Capital LLC, which has owned the asset since 2008. The 1.4 million-square-foot mall is situated on 73 acres. It opened in 1962 as the first enclosed mall in Michigan. At its peak, Summit Place Mall was home to more than 200 stores. The Sears store was the last to close in 2014. DTE Energy plans to break ground this fall on a 50,000-square-foot facility at the site. Redevelopment of the full property could include more than 1 million square feet of mixed uses, including industrial, office, hospitality and fast casual restaurants, according to Arie Leibovitz, owner of Ari-El Enterprises. Dominion represented the seller in the transaction. Terms of the sale were not disclosed. A demolition is in the works for the property.
