Construction is underway on a new $8.6 million, 3-story, mixed use building in the Uptown Bay City complex. Shaheen Development announced that the 55,000 square foot building, at 101 East Main at the corner of Saginaw Street, is across from the Dow Bay Area Family Y.
The building will feature office and retail space on the first floor, with 30 residential apartments on the second and third floors. Leasing for the office and retail space is already underway. The one and two bedroom apartments will start at $975 per month and be available for move-in by the end of 2019.
The new building is another step in the 43-acre waterfront and modern urbanist-inspired neighborhood known as Uptown. Residential condominiums built during phase one of the development have all been sold. Uptown is also home to Dow Chemical, Chemical Bank, McLaren Bay Region, Michigan Sugar, a Marriott Courtyard hotel and many other retailers and small businesses.
