Renovare Development is currently planning a transformational, mixed-use development in Munising Michigan, home to Picture Rocks National Lakes Shore. Comprised of over 15 miles of shoreline along Lake Superior, which includes over 100 miles of scenic trails and colorful sandstone cliffs. Munising has become the poster child of the PURE Michigan campaign. The project involves the construction of a 3-story, mixed-use building that will house 36 mixed-income residential units and a collaborative workforce center designed to foster job creation and placement, serving area workers and businesses.
In close collaboration with the City of Ypsilanti, Michigan, Renovare will develop a missing-middle neighborhood in close proximity to Depot Town. The development will consist of approximately 56 single-family units comprised of colonials and duplexes. The project is designed to support housing diversity and affordability, allowing people from all stages of life to live within the community utilizing the “missing middle” format. Fifty percent of the units will be set aside for families between 40% AMI and 120% AMI through an innovative workforce housing financing program. The project is located within a historic district and will be designed carefully to compliment nearby historic assets.
Renovare will renovate the historic firehall in downtown Munising, Michigan into a family-style destination eatery and distillery. This brownfield site has been vacant and utilized for over ten years. Through a partnership with a major Michigan restaurateur, Renovare will develop a unique destination that will drive tourism traffic to other downtown businesses and create jobs for local residents. This projects is supported by an EPA Site Assessment grant.
In partnership with Harbor Habitat, Inc. Renovare is developing a multi-phase, mixed-use project with affordable housing, workforce multifamily housing and attainable single-family, for-sale homes. The project will provide family amenities such as programmed green space and an early childhood education center. The project is sponsored through a 1.25 Million dollar commitment by Whirlpool Foundation.
