What is Commerce Township like? Commerce is a town that is a little further out. Commerce Township is full of lakes so you will have many curvy roads. Getting to Commerce has become easier since they built M-5 highway and Martin Parkway. You no longer have to travel just Haggerty Road north from 10 Mile Road. Before M-5 was built you had to take Novi Road, Haggerty Road, or Wixom Road to go north. When M-5 was built getting to work from Commerce became so much easier. You can get to I-275, I-96, and I-696 very easy now.
Commerce has no centralized downtown. It has no cute three or four block of stores, restaurants, or bars. In fact I would say Commerce is unlike many other communities. Shopping, stores, restaurants, gas stations, and bar are relatively sparse in the township. You will find most of the commercial properties, stores, etc along Haggerty Road, Pontiac Trail, Union Lake Road, and there are some stores at S Commerce Rd and Commerce Rd. Yes there is a confusing street called Commerce. It goes north and south and east and west. Now with GPS it is not as confusing.
Bottom line there is not a lot of shopping in Commerce proper. But Novi, and 12 Oaks Mall is just a short drive away. The residents just travel a little ways to shop. So what is Commerce like. Commerce is full of lakes. 2.3 square miles (6.0 km2), or 7.61% of Commerce Township Michigan, is water. There is about 28 lakes for a total of 1704 acres. Below is a partial listing of the lakes. There are quite a few big all sports lakes in Commerce. Most of the lakes in Commerce are private though Long Lake, Union Lake, and Middle Straits Lake are public. Union Lake and Middle Straits are mainly in West Bloomfield though small corners of the lake are in Commerce Twp. The Huron River runs mostly north–south through the township.
There are a few roads that curve a little. It is not so much that the roads curve a little that makes the drive north slower. It is because most of the roads in Commerce Township are just two lane roads. That slows the drive a little.Because Commerce is full of lakes you will find that many of the lakes have clusters of smaller homes around them. You are going to find many small 800 to 1200 square foot ranch homes around the different lakes. Many are on slabs or crawl spaces on small lots. There homes were built as cottages that had use of the lake. People just walked down the street to the lake. The small homes on the lake have been torn down, added onto, and re-built since the early years. That is common for most of the lakes in Commerce. The main exception to this is Lake Sherwood. Lake Sherwood is a man made lake that had a planned development around it. The homes were all built in the 1960's and later. That is what the lakes and lake homes are like.In the last 30 years there have been many new subdivisions built in Commerce. You have bigger, brick colonials, cape cod, and contemporary homes in these subdivisions. Many have all the latest amenities. They have great rooms, open layouts, and spacious master bedroom suites. They all have basements, and attached garages. Most of the homes have brick, vinyl, or stone exteriors.Of course there are some homes that sit on bigger lots, some with acreage. You have just about every type, style, age, and size of homes in Commerce. There are some very large homes on the lakes. You have a large variety of homes in Commerce Township.What is Commerce like? It is a safe community in Oakland County. There are no carjackings, no murders, and very little violent crime. You do not have gangs running around. Commerce Township is a safe place for your family. I hope this gives you a glimpse of what Commerce Mi is like.
