Situated near a new riverwalk on the Thornapple River, canoe livery, and farmerâ€™s marketplace doubling as an ice rink in winter, the lot at 115 E. Main Street is in the heart of the Village of Middleville. Located across the street from a mixed-use historic building actively under rehab and between the Village Hall and a popular restaurant, this municipally-owned vacant lot is the site of a former hotel.
The League used funds from the RRC Predevelopment Assistance technical assistance program to work with a multi-talented team from East Arbor Architecture and Land Use USA, under the leadership of Ann Arbor-based Seamless Collaborative, to provide the Village of Middleville with expert advice on how to respond to increased housing demands in the southwest Michigan region. This effort resulted in a market study and RFQ creation for a two- or three-story building with projected use configurations, estimated construction costs, and developer attraction materials.
