New Jersey Firm Acquires Somerset Park in Troy


TROY — The Solomon Organization, based in Summit, N.J,. today acquired Somerset Park, a community of 2,226 apartments with a 9-hole golf course in Troy. The company plans to renovate apartment interiors and upgrade common areas including the recreational facilities.

Somerset Park was developed in the mid-1970s just off Big Beaver Road and is adjacent to the Somerset Collection as well as the Somerset Hotel, a Whole Foods grocery store and several notable office buildings.

“Somerset Park fits perfectly into our long-term strategy of identifying properties in excellent locations that can be improved for this generation’s selective apartment dwellers,” says Marc Solomon, founder of the 38-year-old company.  “Detroit’s recovering economy and excellent prospects proved very appealing to us and we are fortunate to add this excellent property to our portfolio.”
