Property purchase records in Monroe County's Milan Township - located just southeast of a US-23 exit to Milan - indicate that a US-based Chinese investment firm has bought 220 acres, with township officials saying they may be planned for a 415-home upscale development, according to a report in the Detroit News.
The investors have met with Milan city officials to discuss running city water lines to the property, according to the report.
Their ultimate goal, according to the story, is to let residents of the property attend the University of Michigan for in-state tuition rates.
