Thousands of Resources, Ready to help.
Just south of downtown Middleville and adjacent to a quiet neighborhood lies a multi-acre site that is in a walkable neighborhood not far from the heart of Middleville. The property has been vacant for years, serving as a municipally owned surface parking lot and an underutilized site. With waterfront frontage along the Thornapple River, and just a 5-minute walk to downtown, the site presents an opportunity to create new housing solutions within an area of the community that is transitioning into an emerging neighborhood. Be a part of the growth happening in Middleville with unprecedented viewsheds and access to outdoor recreation right out the front door.
The Village of Middleville is part of the thriving Grand Rapids metropolitan region, as families have migrated to the tranquility of small-town life while seeking the luxury of proximity to an urban region with employment, cultural, and entertainment opportunities. The Village has experienced this influence with the development of new housing stock. Middleville also serves as the “front door” to the Yankee Springs Recreation area, which serves to boost the local economy during peak vacation periods and offers excellent outdoor recreation amenities.
The Village would like to partner with a visionary developer to infill the site with a multi-family residential development. Townhomes have been considered, but other types of multi-family or mixed-use developments where community members could call home are also suitable for the site. Based on other recent planning efforts, the Village has developed a vision for a project that features townhouses, docks, on-site trails, and surface parking that is illustrated later on in this proposal.
