PEA Group Celebrates Groundbreaking of Sakura Novi, an Asian-Inspired Development in Novi, Michigan
PEA Group is thrilled to announce the groundbreaking for Sakura Novi, a unique mixed-use development in downtown Novi, Michigan, that celebrates the vibrant cultures of Asia. This Asian-inspired village is the first of its kind in the state and aims to bring together communities around diverse cuisine, entertainment, and retail experiences. Developed by Robertson Brothers Homes, these townhome apartments will provide residents with private entrances, attached garages, first-floor offices, and spacious two- or three-bedroom layouts. The project features a stunning pond, beautiful Asian influenced gardens, residential townhome apartments, professional offices, and a collection of authentic Asian restaurants.
Located in Oakland County, one of the wealthiest counties in the United States, Sakura Novi is intended to be a central gathering place for individuals and families to explore Asian cultures and traditions. The development features walkable spaces, bilingual signage, and authentic architecture, providing an immersive experience reminiscent of the upmarket shopping, dining, and entertainment districts found across Asia. Like the neighborhoods in Osaka, Seoul, and Hong Kong, Sakura Novi’s sidewalks and pathways promise to be alive with activity, creating a vibrant and dynamic destination for friends and families.
PEA Group is proud to be part of this project, providing its expertise in landscape architecture, civil engineering, and surveying. Sakura Novi provided a unique opportunity to think creatively to develop park like amenities for both residents and visitors to enjoy. The Asian themed garden features a children’s sensory garden, floating boardwalk, and terraced plaza. The apartment amenity spaces are highlighted by fire pits and wooden shade structures that reflect Asian architectural elements such as the Torii gate. The streets are lined with Sakura Trees that will make the site reminiscent of a Japanese cherry blossom festival every spring.
