The former Public Safety building site is located on the southwest fringe of downtown adjacent to the Vine Neighborhood. This two acre parcel currently functions as a surface parking lot for downtown employees. Owned by the city of Kalamazoo, the site is surrounded predominately by office uses on the north, east and west sides. Multiple family housing lies to the south. The property allows for a unique mixed use project that should transition from the urban office/retail uses to the residences in the neighborhood connector district. New housing has been the key requirement for any development scenario proposed for the site as long as its design and scale fit with the context of the adjacent buildings. This block is considered a prime redevelopment site downtown, ready to move. Both the City and DKI are actively seeking local and regional investors with multiple-use redevelopment experience.
