Harbor 31 Development aims to redefine Muskegon Lake shoreline

Massive complex includes hotel, storefronts, apartment complexes, and new marina

City of Muskegon officials and developers Thursday will break ground on a new, $120 million development on Muskegon Lake.

The new, “sprawling” Harbor 31 Development is designed to redefine how people access Muskegon Lake.

The project, located at 650 Terrace St., includes a new hotel, retail and office space, 15-single-family homes and 16-duplex units.

The Harbor 31 Development includes the construction of Viridian Place, a 48-unit complex; a separate, 134-unit apartment complex; a senior living facility with 104 beds; and Harbor 31 Commons, which will include 88-apartment and condominium units that will sit above restaurants and storefronts, while the development also calls for a new marina and boat dealership.

The groundbreaking Thursday comes on the heels of a 20-year, $80 million effort to clean up Muskegon Lake, which served as an industrial waste dumping ground for decades. It’s one step from being removed from the Environmental Protection Agency’s list of Great Lakes Areas of Concern list.

Now, multiple developments and efforts are underway to make Muskegon Lake a premier tourist destination on the Lakeshore, including Harbor 31.

Officials say completion is set for 2025.
