Troy’s Somerset Collection is set to undergo an exterior makeover this summer, and with goals of bringing a “beautiful, newly-paved entry in the South Rotunda,” Somerset is aiming to reimagine the guest experience — beginning before shoppers reach the doors.

Construction on the Somerset South parking area is set to last from June to September, and Somerset Collection will serve guests complimentary refreshments and live music at each entrance of Somerset Collection South all summer long.

During the construction, guests can enter the building through Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, and the other doors at the front of the building. Guests should look for simple, clear signage to direct them to additional open parking areas. Both parking structures and the adjacent entrances will remain fully open during the renovation.

When construction is complete, the entry will be lined with aesthetic landscape and bold lighting. There will also be a new fine-dining experience with outdoor seating.

In addition to the entry space entertainment, there will be a “Construction Catwalk,” created by Somerset Collection Stylists. As guests cross the 700-foot-long glass-enclosed moving skywalk, which connects both ends of the mall, they will often see photographers and models using the construction area as a backdrop.

The Somerset Collection is located at 2800 W. Big Beaver Road, Troy, and is home to more than 180 stores and restaurants. Information about center or store-specific events as well as store hours can be found on their website.
