Site Description

The former baby bliss building at 120 W. Main is great development opportunity because of the unique location to the pure natural resources and burgeoning and quaint downtown Middleville. The site has spectacular views and access to the Thornapple River, is conveniently located along the busy Main Street with nearly 10,000 daily vehicle trips along M-37 just a turn away. The building has the capability to become an anchor towards redeveloping the west riverfront, as envisioned in the Master Plan. The preferred vision is a mixed-use with a brewery to take advantage of the location with patio space, outdoor dining. The square footage allows for possible retail, office and residential units to be included, which can offer a live/work arrangement. A recent community survey has revealed a need for higher quality and upper scale dining/beverage establishments, in which this site is ideal. The structure contains historic qualities, though creative design, can capture and retain the former uses while adapting to the economic climate of the 21st century.

Middleville is currently on the verge of establishing itself as Barry County's most desirable community to live work and play, where developers can take advantage of the cost of doing business under current market conditions, in addition to the proximity to Greater Grand Rapids and the bountiful amenities offered in the West Michigan region.
