The Village of Rochester Hills is a retail lifestyle center located in Rochester Hills, Michiganmarker, a suburb on the northern outskirts of Metro Detroitmarker. Built in 2002, the center replaced a former enclosed shopping mall called Meadowbrook Village Mall. The Village of Rochester Hills features more than fifty inline tenants as well as two anchor stores: a Parisian department store and a Whole Foods Market.

History

For more than twenty-five years, the northeastern corner of Walton Boulevard and South Adams Road in Rochester Hills, Michiganmarker was occupied by Meadowbrook Village Mall. This was a small enclosed shopping mall which did not feature any anchor stores, with Frank's Nursery & Crafts being the largest tenant. The community also had two other small malls: Great Oaks Mall one mile to the east was closed and demolished in 2002 after the closure of its anchor Jacobson's, and Winchester Mall one mile to the south was demolished for a strip mall.

Starting in the mid-1980s, Meadowbrook Village Mall's owners, Robert B. Aikens & Associates, had made unsuccessful attempts to attract national chain stores to the mall. In 1996, the company made the decision to demolish the property for a lifestyle center complex anchored by a Parisian department store and a Farmer Jack Food Emporium supermarket, with the other stores arranged along a "main street." The Village of Rochester Hills opened on September 20, 2002 as the Detroit area's first lifestyle center, with more than fifty inline tenants, including several restaurants and the largest Talbots clothing store in the state of Michigan, and the state's first Coldwater Creek. Between the existing Parisian at Laurel Park Placemarker in Livonia and the Village of Rochester Hills store, Detroit became the second most-profitable market for the Parisian chain. After the mall opened, a similar development called Fountain Walk (now Twelve Mile Crossing at Fountain Walk) opened in Novimarker, and The Mall at Partridge Creek opened in 2007 in Clinton Township, featuring another Parisian and Nordstrommarker. In 2006 and 2007, Belk acquired the Parisian name and converted most of the Parisian stores to the Belk name, although the three Parisian stores in Michigan were sold to The Bon-Ton, which retained the Parisian name on the Detroit stores. Farmer Jack closed the last of its stores in 2007 due to the chain's bankruptcy, and Whole Foods Market moved from an existing store into the former Farmer Jack building.
