On June 29, Cressy Commercial Real Estate and Cornerstone Alliance welcomed more than 75 guests for a ribbon-cutting ceremony celebrating the completion of City Center Lofts at 74 W. Main St. in Benton Harbor, Michigan.
Attendees heard remarks from the president and chief executive officer of Cornerstone Alliance, Rob Cleveland; the chief executive officer of Cressy Commercial Real Estate, Chris Fielding; and the Benton Harbor City Commissioner, Mary Alice Adams, who cut the ribbon.
Constructed in the 1880s, the building was on the verge of demolition before a partnership between the Michigan Economic Development Corporation, the City Council of Benton Harbor, Cornerstone Alliance and Cressy Commercial Real Estate resulted in a complete rehabilitation of its structure and purpose.
At the celebration, guests toured the 20,000-square-foot building, which features two available commercial suites and 16 neo-industrial style lofts that range from studio apartments to one-bedroom apartments with an office. There are currently seven lofts that remain available for lease.
