MUSKEGON, MI – A new vibrant community began construction with a groundbreaking ceremony yesterday. Harbor 31 (H31) creates a variety of residential living opportunities along the Muskegon Lake shoreline, along with retail, office and hotel space. H31 incorporates the scale and materials of a traditional central business district in a contemporary architectural style.

“The natural beauty of our location, the dedication of our partners and our proximity to exciting downtown Muskegon realizes the collaborative leadership efforts of many,” said Dan Henrickson, President, Henrickson Architecture + Planning and Principal of Harbor 31. “This diverse community will reflect the variety of residents already interested in what this incredible development has to offer.”

As Muskegon’s growth continues to accelerate, H31 will serve as a catalyst for community. Planned projects include Trilogy Health Services, a 104-unit senior living facility, one of the first projects established as part of the ground breaking event. “We are trilled to offer our future residents the unique opportunity to connect with nature, a variety of neighbors, and the contiguity of an urban setting combined with waterfront,” stated Samantha Thelen, Divisional Vice President in Michigan, Trilogy Health Services.

In addition to Trilogy Health Services, the project has already begun work on Veridian Shores, single-family homes nestled on the shoreline of Muskegon Lake. Custom built by residential builder Dave Dusendang, these homes feature open concept main floors, expansive interiors for breathtaking views of the water and include panoramic vistas from finished rooftop living areas.

Plans for H31 prioritize connectivity to the waterfront for residents and the public. H31 Marina, boat storage and a retail sales facility act as amenities for the entire region, connecting downtown Muskegon to their lakeshore.

Future phases of the project include Boardwalk Flats, a 134-unit residential apartment building as well as Harbor 31 Commons, a four-story “Town Center” with a combination of apartments, condominiums, retail, restaurants, and parking garages.

The project is partially managed by Grand Rapids, Michigan-based Wolverine Building Group serving as a general contractor. The community is designed by Hendrickson Architecture + Planning and Paradigm Design.
