Exterior (4)


This one-of-a-kind 137,096 square foot building is situated on 11.40+/- acres in a serene wooded setting strategically located directly across from Fairlane Town Center, one of the area’s largest enclosed regional malls. It’s also adjacent to the University of Michigan Dearborn and Henry Ford Fairlane Medical Center across the street, with AAA Corporate Office and Ford Motor Company Headquarters nearby. Conveniently set within one mile of multiple high-end dining and shopping opportunities, The Fairlane Club was built in the mid-1970’s by Ford Motor Land Development and served as a prominent health and social club for decades. Since 2011, the property has been owned by the Ebeid family who have taken great pride in operating and maintaining this Dearborn gem.

We are proud to announce this unprecedented opportunity to purchase the Fairlane Club. The rich history and future potential of this site make this one of the most exciting real estate offerings of its kind.  The property is comprised of elegant meeting rooms accommodating up to 600 people, an outdoor pool with adjoining restaurant and outdoor bar, indoor pool and jacuzzi, six full tennis courts, racquetball courts, basketball courts, and full-service locker rooms with sauna, spa areas, etc.  Located off Hubbard Drive, the property is five minutes from Southfield Fwy. (M-39) and sandwiched between Ford Rd. and Michigan Ave., allowing for endless possibilities within this vast footprint. Detroit Metropolitan Airport (DTW) is only a fifteen minute drive. This could be a phenomenal opportunity to bring the entire property back to its glory days or it could be an exciting repurpose/redevelopment play.


The subject opportunity is threefold: reopen as a first-class event/wellness/social club, redevelop the existing building or break ground on a newly constructed development:

Reopen Fairlane Club

Continue the current success of the event and banquet business and reopen the social/health club.

Redevelopment of Existing Building

The existing 137,096 square foot building could be redeveloped in a manner such that the aesthetic and historical integrity of the building stays intact. The property could be redeveloped into a senior living community, student housing professional campus setting, or other mixed use development.

Demolition and Ground-Up Construction

This scenario would involve demolition of the existing building and construction of a brand-new structure. The development could be a mixed-use project with ground floor retail and either multi-family or office on the remaining floors. The site’s location and astounding walk score could also make an excellent location for a development. These are just a few of the many potential possibilities, as the opportunity is flexible.
