Built in the 1990s, Laurel Park Place departs from the wide-open mall look and has the feel of a series of shopping courts. Shops tend toward the elegant and the upscale. The largest Jacobson's clothing store in the chain is the anchor. Laurel Park Place also has the only Parisian store in Michigan. Dining options are a cut above the usual mall fare. Laurel Park Place has spawned the familiar satellite system of stores, eateries and office buildings, transforming a sleepy section of the western suburbs into a central destination along the burgeoning I-275 corridor.
