one of the most popular development areas in the State of Michigan, and the home to many of the exciting businesses noted on this page.
Key anchors in this area (Eureka Road, between Telegraph and Allen roads) include the only shopping mall in the Downriver region,
Southland Center. Southland was one of the original big four Detroit metro area malls created by J.L. Hudson's in the 1960s, and remains one of the biggest draws Downriver when it comes to shopping.
, a brand-new 80-plus acre site on the corner of I-75 and Eureka, is anchored by big-box retailers Menards and BJ's Wholesale Club, with a La-Z-Boy display room and a new popular Wahlburgers restaurant across the street.
In addition to luring hundreds of millions of dollars in new business development and thousands of jobs, the City of Taylor and Wayne County are planning vast upgrades to the Eureka Road business corridor. An in-depth study of the corridor suggests many traffic and transportation-related improvements, including new traffic signals and timing, signage, street scaping including better pedestrian crossings, new sidewalks and bus stops. The City and county are also working on plans to improve the Frank & Poet Drain that runs through the business district.
Through these types of upgrades, Eureka Way! will be transformed from high-speed, unattractive motor-vehicle-only destination point to a new, modern, attractive gathering spot that welcomes all types of traffic, from motor vehicles to pedestrians, motorcyclists to bicycles.
