The developers of the former Grace Hospital site in West Windsor, Fairmount Properties, announced affiliation agreements with St. Clair College and the University of Windsor and provided updates on a healthcare offering, retail, grocery operators, and restaurants.

Fairmount Properties has engaged one of the premier architects in the world, Callison RTKL to design this transformation initiative. Callison RTKL has designed other high-profile projects, including Flats East Bank, waterfront development, and Pinecrest, both developed by Fairmount Properties and both top North American award recipients.

“This is not a simple strip retail project or freestanding apartment building. The Global Village is a complex, multi-faceted mixed-use district which requires significantly more planning and effort on the front end,” said Randy Ruttenberg, Founder and Principal at Fairmount Properties.

Fairmount Properties has reached affiliation agreements with St. Clair College and the University of Windsor to co-market the housing for nearly 500 students in modern and cutting-edge residences.

They have also has a signed Letter of Intent with a major operator of healthcare practice groups who will lease 14,000 sq. ft. of space within the Global Village.

The goal of providing retail and restaurant amenities for those living and working in the Global Village and the broader community. Fairmount Properties is in advance discussions with two grocery operators, one from Canada and one from Michigan, and will select one by year’s end. This will be a smaller format store between 9500-12,000 sq. ft. with a focus on produce, meats, seafood, everyday staples, and prepared meals.

The developer has also had preliminary discussions with operators within its target categories of health and fitness, coffee, fast casual food offerings, sit-down restaurants, and smaller boutiques.

Fairmount anticipates making final decisions in 6 to 12 months.
