NEW APARTMENT COMPLEX / Project ID 2021-24E3
Construction is slated to begin on this $13 million apartment complex in October 2022. The development will be four stories high, approximately 46,000 square feet, and feature between 44 and 53 apartments.

Last month, the city council approved conceptual plans for this $7 to $9 million hotel.

The two-story building is estimated to cost $7.5 million to renovate. It will provide 50 one-bedroom and studio market-rate apartments, along with public spaces and professional offices. Aspects of the classrooms will be kept, such as the chalkboards on the walls in apartments, and placing classroom furniture in the communal spaces.
NEW NURSING HOME AND REHABILITATION CENTER / Project ID 2021-257B
Plans include 100 private suites and 125 parking spaces for this 84,725 square foot facility. Construction is anticipated to begin in June 2022.

The township Board of Trustees reviewed a community block grant application on October 7. The project is estimated to cost $73.5 million.
