A while back, Whirlpool Corp. wrapped up its new early childcare center (named "The Eddy") on its corporate campus in Benton Harbor. This facility is intended to attract potential staff with younger children to relocate to the area for employment. It recently received a design award from AIA Grand Rapids -

Berrien Springs -

The new Sylvester Stadium at Berrien Springs Public Schools is officially open and looks great. The new, custom gateway signage was just added this past week. Pretty impressive for a rural school district in Southwest Michigan.

Wow, that is an impressive stadium. Much better than what a lot of bigger districts have.

Yeah, the team building is impressively large - it contains public restrooms, locker rooms / team rooms, concessions, storage, press box, and marching band space -

Grand Haven -

Formerly known as Jackson Flats, the re-named Peerless Flats (a proposed housing development in downtown Grand Haven) will seek final approvals from the Grand Haven City Council on November 16. At 130+ units & 148,000 + SF, this would be a huge investment in the downtown. The site is near the waterfront, bordered by Jackson, Fulton, 1st, & 2nd Streets. Groundbreaking is scheduled for Spring 2021. No cost given; but this must be upwards of $30 - $40 million.

10-story apartment tower proposed for downtown Muskegon by MSU trustees

Quote:
MUSKEGON, MI – A 10-story residential “tower” is the latest plan for a gutted building in downtown Muskegon eyed for redevelopment by two Michigan State University trustees.

Joel Ferguson and Muskegon attorney Brianna Scott, both members of the MSU board of trustees, recently shared their vision for the property with Muskegon city commissioners.

The former bank building at the corner of First Street and Clay Avenue is owned by the city of Muskegon, which gutted the building down to its steel beams to prepare it for redevelopment.

After about a year of study the developers have determined the existing structure is usable and will be able to accommodate the addition of five more stories, said Jake Eckholm, the city of Muskegon’s economic development director. The “phase one” plan now is to put 52 rental apartments in the tower building, as well as co-working space for residents who work from their residences, he said.

A later phase likely will add dozens more apartments as well as a three- to four-story parking garage in an area fronting Clay Avenue currently comprised of a single-story attached structure and a city-owned parking lot, Eckholm said. The parking structure would be for tenant and some public use, he said.

How the building sits now.

That's pretty interesting. Of all the possible scenarios for this project, I never anticipated one where it could effectively double in height! Even if they only add 2 or 3 stories, it would play well off of the adjacent Highpoint Flats.

Unsurprisingly, Grand Haven City Council unanimously approved three proposals related to advancing the Jackson Flats development at their Monday meeting.

Here's a different sort of "development", in Muskegon -

The City is asking the public to vote on their favorites. 4 of the 6 finalists below will be installed next spring, pending funding. I like numbers 1 & 6.

Benton Harbor - "The Port of Possibilities" -

ABC 57 has started a series called "Building Up Benton Harbor". The first installment focuses on the Cornerstone Alliance project in the former Farmers and Merchants Building, as well as the City Center Building with Cressy Real Estate. Also included: a big nod to Whirlpool and its contributions. Really nothing in terms of "new news" but we will see what future installments discuss.

Unsurprising news, the new Muskegon Convention Center - which has faced numerous delays from numerous issues - is now projected to be $2 million over budget ($21+ million, vs. the original $19.5 million budget). Perhaps equally unsurprising, the plan to makeup the difference with naming rights. Any guesses?
