Additional Information

The two parcels on offer total 14.94 acres of developable land fronting the Kalamazoo River, and are located adjacent to Plainwell’s City Hall and Public Safety buildings. The property provides an opportunity to bring desirable residential development to the community, including housing in formats that are currently underrepresented in the local market. Parcel 2 & 5.

The subject site is located at the western gateway to Plainwell’s historic downtown district. The portions on offer include over 500 feet of linear frontage on Allegan Street (M-43/89) and extends nearly 2,000 feet along the Kalamazoo River at the rear. The City has reserved a narrow parcel of land extending along the riverbank for future extension of the riverfront trail system. The historically significant portions of the Paper Mill complex—which closed permanently in 2000—have been retained, and are located on a parcel adjacent to those on offer. These buildings have been repurposed as Plainwell’s City Hall, Public Safety Headquarters, and private office space.
