New Market Rate Apartments Coming To Muskegon
Construction of the Terrace Plaza apartments is now underway.
“This is an exciting time for downtown Muskegon. The Watch Muskegon campaign, new restaurants, and shops have brought a lot of energy to the area,” stated Roger Hinman, CEO of the Hinman Company. “This increased activity also means that there is a demand for downtown living and we are pleased to offer that to the community.”
The 6th Floor will have 19 one and two bedroom apartments, ranging from 618 to 1,097 square feet. The 7th Floor will feature a 2,337 square foot, two‐bedroom penthouse apartment. Also on the 7th floor will be a common area fitness center and community room with an outdoor patio. All of the units will have a washer and dryer, granite counter tops, spacious closets, and stunning views of downtown and/or Muskegon Lake. Enclosed parking will be available for all residents.
“We have seen an increase in the demand for downtown housing options,” says Dave Alexander, Executive Director of Downtown Muskegon Now. “This is the first market-rate apartment development to take place in several years and it will be great to offer this additional option for those looking to move to Downtown Muskegon.”
Downtown Muskegon Now, the organization charged with promoting and developing downtown, anticipates that more housing projects will soon follow.
