Bay City's sky line along the Saginaw River is changing.
Gone are the large towers carrying high voltage power lines across the river and the
huge stone piles.
SSP Associates Vice President Peter Shaheen says the Uptown project creates a dynamic urban setting. He tells Tuesday's Bay Area Chamber of Commerce Eyeopener Breakfast the project will be very pedestrian friendly.
Anchor tenants Chemical Bank, Dow Corning and McLaren Bay Region will
share the 43 acre site, south of the Veterans Memorial Bridge, with a 100 room Courtyard by Marriott Hotel, a Real Seafood Company
restaurant, offices, specialty retailers, brownstone apartments and condominiums.
Between 300 and 400 Dow Corning employees will move into their new offices by the end of the summer.
A small day use marina will also be on the site joining an extension of Bay City's popular Riverwalk.
