DEVELOP - DESIGN - BUILD
We work with you to fully understand all aspects of your real estate development needs. From economic incentives to navigating city approvals through construction, our team is with you from inception.
Jeff Smoke, Managing Director and Principal at Great Lakes Capital, said, “This development will be a great complement to the Fort Custer Industrial Park. There is nothing like this property available in this region right now. With its easy access to the highway and high visibility along I-94, we expect that this project will attract a lot of attention from major national companies.”
Greg Dilone Jr, VP of Development at Clark Logic, said “Our understanding of Southwest Michigan has been gained by building foundations with communities for the last 50 years. Given Battle Creek’s location, workforce and competitive costs, we believe there is a tremendous opportunity here. This is the first of three phases we have planned for the site. If we are successful, we will build two more buildings, creating an additional 500,000 square feet of industrial space,”
