J. Crew's Troy, Michigan Retail Permits

Troy, Michigan Retail Permit Approval In Just 2 Business Days

J. Crew, a renowned fashion retailer, sought to grow its presence in Troy, Michigan, with a sprawling 5920 square foot retail space.

As part of a multi-site rollout, J. Crew relied on Permit Place to help navigate the complex permit landscape and streamline the permit approval process.


For the J. Crew location in Troy, the Permit Place team faced an immediate hurdle. We received the necessary plans for submission just 7 days before the project’s activation. And, the project required Building, Mechanical, Plumbing, Electrical, and Fire permits.

Fortunately, we had already completed an in-depth due diligence report. This report enabled us to catch upfront the crucial factors that could influence the project timeline.

By the time we got the plans, we already knew:

  • Essential stakeholders involved in the project.
  • Standards for plan layout and name designation.
  • Necessary unique seals.
  • Guidelines for submissions and form-related specifics.
  • Stipulations concerning racking.
  • Departments involved and their specific submission guidelines.
  • Standards set by the AHJ.
  • Prerequisites for contractor issuance.
  • Among other considerations.

Project Win

With the due diligence information at our disposal, we rigorously reviewed the permit application for adherence to Troy’s standards, correcting any issues before submittal.

With a projected turnaround time of two weeks, the Permit Place team managed to astound even the most optimistic stakeholders and get 1st round approval in a mere 2 business days.

This not only expedited J. Crew’s construction timeline but also demonstrated the efficiency and effectiveness of Permit Place’s approach.
