Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Harbor 31, Muskegon, Michigan to be off grid
Harbor 31 reimagines Muskegon waterfront from industrial to green

Muskegon's former Edison Landing, now known as Harbor 31, is 34 acres of Brownfield redevelopment along Muskegon Lake at the end of Terrace Street, with the potential for $100 million to $200 million worth of green, sustainable development. The owner, Grand Rapids-based True North, is marketing that potential nationally and is prepared to wait for the right developers with the right vision - green and self-sustainable.

This potential is based on the ability to use the land surrounding GVSU's MAREC, VidaNova Condominiums and Parmenter O'Toole to create a place for people to live, work and play, says True North's Dan Henrickson. He sees an opportunity to promote the entertainment aspect of the waterfront, including some 100 boat slips, a possible casino, hotel, restaurants and residential.

"We want the entire development to be off the grid," Henrickson says. "MAREC is basically an alternative energy power plant and has the potential to power the whole site."
