The Taco Bell at 21900 Woodward is closed so that owners can tear the building down and put a new one up. The project is expected to take approximately three months, according to site plans that were approved by City Council in November.
The rebuilt Taco Bell will feature new signage which confirms with current City of Ferndale code, outdoor seating areas, bike racks, rain gardens, and an upgraded facade of brick and stone.
There is still another Taco Bell nearby at 1045 W. 9 Mile. Once the rebuilding is complete at the Woodward location, this one will close for the same reason. Timing of the W. 9 Mile Taco Bell rebuild will coincide with the W. 9 Mile streetscape project beginning in June.
