Groundbreaking occurred in 1986 and opening occurred in 1987. Patricia Karevich, the Mayor of Novi at the time, mentioned that the opening was the start of a Downtown for the city. Barbara G. Louie, author of No. VI on the Trail: A History of Novi, Michigan for the Novi Historical Commission, composed that as a result of the development, “the centerpiece was drawn once again to what was as soon as Novi’s primary downtown.”

Trammell Crow developed the 485,000-square-foot (45,100 m2) commercial area of the shopping center along with the Lake Pointe Corporate Center. The commercial and business centers took a 150-acre (61 ha) plot of land.  This was among the Trammell Crow business’s 2 major projects in Michigan at the time.

It was managed by the chain Goodrich up until the management was given to an Indian couple on December 1, 2005. The couple, Sonali and Rakesh Gangwani, started evaluating Bollywood and other Indian films on a daily basis there.
