The city of Algoma has three new potential developments on the horizon. In a recent Plan Commission meeting, Kevin Klienert of Expedite Development is proposing the Bell Harbor Condominium along the Lake Michigan shoreline south of Algoma and a multi-family apartment development just north of Algoma. Mayor Wayne Schmidt says the city was looking to meet the demand for more upscale housing that was part of the comprehensive plan.
Schmidt says the other development by Gerrard Corporation is a multi-family residential housing between Fifth Street and Steele Street. The condominium development would start with four condos while the apartments would start with between 15 to 20 apartments. The Gerrard Corporation does not have specific numbers with their development, according to Schmidt.
