Funds have been awarded to a brownfield redevelopment project in the city of Grand Haven in Ottawa County Michigan. The funding includes a $1,000,000 Brownfield Redevelopment Grant and a $1,000,000 Brownfield Redevelopment Loan to facilitate development at a former industrial site in Grand Haven. The Grand Landing Project, located along the Grand River in Grand Haven, will return a contaminated and abandoned industrial facility to productive use. The 21 acre site was used manufacturing, as a tannery, for furniture making, as a municipal wastewater treatment plant, for metal plating, as petroleum storage and for distribution, auto repair, and brine storage. The funding announced today will be used to prevent exposure to contaminants. Private investment is anticipated for acquisition of the property and construction of 175 condominiums, a conference center, and retail and office space. This work is expected to create 600 full-time jobs.
