Overview / Comments

This beautifully restored 25,965 SF historical building is located in the heart of downtown Muskegon, near the waterfront. A landmark space in town that is part of a vibrant street wall, the old school beauty of the Russell Block building’s historical architecture has been artfully maintained, both inside and out. The building was constructed in 1890 and fully renovated between 2013-2015 with new HVAC and fire suppression systems, elevator and five restrooms. All tenant spaces in this three-level building are in regular use as it is fully leased and occupied by 6 retail and office tenants. The second floor is home to the West Michigan Symphony and boasts an outdoor green deck with decorative plantings. The site also includes a 3,175 SF courtyard located on the southwest side of the building. This excellent investment opportunity is in immediate proximity to much of the significant new development now taking place in downtown Muskegon.
