Fenton HS Property Acquired for New Retail Development


Property adjacent to the Fenton High School Football Stadium has been sold by the Fenton Area Public Schools. The 3.5-acre parcel between the stadium and the Speedway gas station was acquired by Keystone Commercial Real Estate. Dubbed the Target Outlet New Development, Keystone is currently seeking leases to develop the site.

The property sold for a reported $1.3 million. Funds from the sale will be used by the school district to make a number of improvements. The opportunity to sell the real estate was assisted by the Fenton City Council. At their December 11, 2017 meeting the council voted unanimously to rezone the property.

Keystone’s preliminary site plan shows a layout for 2 restaurants with Owen Road frontage. As well as space for a grocery store at the rear of the property.
