The Creamery development in Kalamazoo set be finished January 2021
The Kalamazoo Edison neighborhood was getting a new development expected to open at the beginning of 2021.
The development is a 60,000 square foot multi-use, mixed income building named the Creamery. The Creamery was expected to have 48 apartments, with 39 of them being held for affordable housing.
“The most critical need we have right now is on the lower end of the income spectrum,” said Hollander Development president Matt Hollander. “It is extremely difficult to find affordable housing if you are earning anything less than about $40,000 a year right now in the Kalamazoo area. So this is going to fill a critical gap there, it’s not going to fill the whole gap but it’s meaningful progress.”
The Creamery would also hold a YWCA child center, which was expected to open at the same time. There would also be about 6,000 square feet available for commercial use.
Hollander said that COVID-19 has created a few small set backs in the process. Construction stopped for about two months and some materials have been harder to obtain but despite this Hollander said that he still believes that the building will open in January 2021 barring a spike in COVID-19 cases.
When it does open Hollander said that they will hold an open house for the community to come tour the building.
