Holland city block revitalized as $15M Midtown Village apartments, linear park
September 27, 2011
A full city block just outside of downtown Holland has gone from a desolate property with empty high school and junior high buildings to what could soon be a thriving residential and commercial center featuring a linear park.
The block will soon have bragging rights to Midtown Village, a complex of 30 new one- and two-bedroom senior apartments developed by Grand Rapids-based Dwelling Place. The nonprofit housing organization has invested some $15M in renovation and development of the circa 1912 E. E. Fell Junior High School and will open it to the public on October 11.
