New Mixed-Use Building

Kalamazoo, MI // 275,000 sq. ft.

Client Challenge and TowerPinkster Solution

Goals for the project are revitalization, densifying the urban core, and providing space for community focused groups to co-locate. Overlaying these goals are the focus towards delivering high design through architecture, design and site amenities.

Two floors of the building will be residential housing, with four floors of office space, and a parking garage which will include over 300 spots. The new parking will exceed existing spots currently on the lot, adding capacity to the busy downtown area.

The residential spaces will include studio workforce housing, and one and two-bedroom apartments. The design of the units will include balconies and abundant daylighting. Other features include an interior common laundry for workforce units and bike storage with a self-repair station.

Office tenants will include Kalamazoo Promise, Communities in Schools, Warner Norcross and Judd, LLP., and Southwest Michigan First. Shared amenities for all building users include a 3,500 sf fitness center and common roof terrace with open social space.
