Architect To Present New Downtown Traverse City Development

Posted: Updated:

It's still in the preliminary stages, but a new high rise could be built in Traverse City soon.

Wednesday night, local architect David Hanawalt will present a new development proposal to the city planning commission.

A parking lot at the corner of Pine and Front streets downtown hasn't yet been purchased by Hanawalt's Developer, it's up for sale for $3.45 million.

Just shy of the city's 100 foot height limit, the new building could boast a parking deck, residences, retail shops, and a fitness center.

Russ Soyring, Traverse City's Planning Director says, "this end of downtown has been a quiet area, so having 100 to 150 new dwelling units, potentially retail, a grocery store, coffee shop and a restaurant; those certainly will add a lot of excitement and energy to this part of town."

Soyring says since the proposed building is over 60 feet tall, the process of city and planning commission approval will be very public.
