Inside Muskegon food hall being built in historic bank building

Core Plaza is reimagining an historic building in downtown Muskegon that was once the city’s premiere bank.

Located at 221 W. Webster Ave., the old bank National Lumberman’s Bank building is now being converted into a multi-use complex that plans to include a restaurant collective, retail boutiques, private business tenants and a variety of co-working spaces.

The building was originally constructed for $2 million in 1962 and opened with fanfare – giving away a car, radio and television. It later became the state’s first rooftop heliport in 1965.

Flipping the old bank building, which hadn’t been occupied in a decade, gives space to new entrepreneurs and a new direction for the city, Troy Wasserman, co-partner at Core Realty Partners, told MLive on Monday, March 11.

Wasserman’s family owns Muskegon’s oldest business, the 144-year-old Wasserman Flowers and Gifts.

“I get to work in the oldest business from Muskegon and I get to work with a lot of the people that are doing the newest businesses in Muskegon,” Wasserman told MLive.

The food hall plans to open this summer.
