More Information
Great Lakes Capital is building a mixed-use development consisting of 91 units, 5,000 SF of commercial service space, and 87 below-grade parking spaces. GLC worked with the city, MEDC, and EGLE for nearly two years to get the site fully entitled and ready for development. The market-rate project will include 14 units at 80% AMI for a period of five years. The $26mm project is expected to be completed in December of 2022.

  • The only other completed market-rate multi-family development is 100% occupied
  • Strong support from the Downtown Development Authority
  • Excellent incentives with Brownfield TIF and tax credit incentives in place
  • Site plan approved by TC site plan committee on April 13th, 2020
