Muskegon created an unique opportunity in that it is developing a completely new downtown….though the going has been slow.


The latest concept is to place these pop up chalets (think tiny homes) in one block to create interest in the downtown area as well as to provide a location for small businesses to gain a customer following.

They seem like a good idea to try out….better than the shipping container project a while back.
