MUSKEGON, MI – Construction on the downtown HighPoint Flats high rise has officially begun, an announcement Muskegon has been waiting nearly a decade to hear.
“The stars have aligned for HighPoint Flats,” said developer Jon Rooks.
Rooks’ Parkland Muskegon LLC is turning the eight-story historic bank building into 47 market-rate apartments and three floors of commercial space. Exterior renovations will be completed by the end of this year, and the residential units completed by mid-2018, Rooks said.
Visser Construction has set up an on-site office and a job superintendent is there every work day, Rooks said. Portable toilets have even been set up – a sure sign that workers are on-site.
