Oakland Community College (OCC) acquired 11 additional acres of property in the Southfield DDA in January 2014 adjacent to its current location just off Nine Mile. Much of this property comprised the former location of the Ramada Inn that was torn down in 2013.
According to OCC Janet Roberts the college does not have any immediate plans to develop the land but acquired the property in case future growth was needed. “We own a good amount of land at most of our other properties but we’re landlocked a bit in Southfield. So this was a decision that made good sense for us in case we do decide to expand in the future.”
