Troy is an affluent city in Oakland County in the State of Michigan, and is a suburb of Detroit. The population was 80,980 at the 2010 census, making it the 11th-largest city in Michigan by population, and the largest city in Oakland County. Troy has become a business and shopping destination in the Metro Detroit area, with numerous office centers and the upscale Somerset Collection mall.
Beautiful homes, in many price ranges, provide a distinctive landscape for the City of Troy. They form wonderful neighborhoods that are picture-perfect for raising a family. In addition to single-family residences, you’ll find an excellent mix of condominiums, apartments and multi-family complexes. This range of housing forms the backbone of this great City.
First-class schools are one of the hallmarks of Troy. Our public school district has six national blue ribbons and features 13 State Exemplary Schools. Our high schools, Troy High School and Troy Athens High School, were both recently featured on the list of “The 1000 Most Outstanding High Schools in the United States” by Newsweek magazine. And with math and reading MEAP scores for Troy Public School running about 35% above state averages, it’s no wonder 95% of our students go on to higher education.
People come from miles around to take advantage of our premier shopping and dining. Somerset Collection, located in the heart of the City, is an upscale mall with over 180 stores, boutiques and restaurants. The travel magazine, Fodor's, describes Somerset as "one of the top shopping malls in the United States." One look around and you'll know why.
