River Caddis Development and the Gillespie Group were selected by community stakeholders to plan, design, construct and manage a “live/work/play” environment in downtown Midland, Michigan. River Caddis and Gillespie Group formed Midland Downtown Partners, LLC, which collectively designed a multi-phase redevelopment project which includes retail, professional office, and medical clinic/office, appropriately labeled “East End.” This 224,000 square foot mixed-use building is complete with office, medical, and retail users on the ground floor (restaurants, medical clinic, retail banking), and the upper three floors are comprised of professional offices.
East End delivers a “Sense of Place” by tying the formerly underutilized north area to the existing downtown, creating vibrancy. This vibrancy was created by numerous aspects, including:
· Walkable Community
· Flexible retail space
· Convenient parking for retailers
· Pedestrian circulation, coordinated with the Great Lake Loons Stadium
· Mix of commercial and non-commercial activity
· Casual social interaction areas
· Residential units (subsequent phases)
