Holland Big Building Buyers

14 posts in this topic

From what I understand, a Home Depot is planning on setting up shop in Holland. They are closing a deal for a 14 acre pad with some shared parking I believe. My question for this growing city is "Who's next"? What other "big building" business is left that hasn't joined the Holland area? Still no Costco... are there any others?

I can actually see an IKEA built somewhere between Holland and Grand Rapids some day. Just speculating, but it would make sense.

Welcome ninehigh!

Thanks for the welcome too! I'm a long time reader, first time poster. Love the site.

Yes. I think the Ottawa-Kent I-196/M-6 corridor growth will outstrip the Plymouth-Canton-Ann Arbor corridor (maybe already is). Rivertown Crossings alone makes three times the sales/square foot of any other General Growth property. That's straight from the horses mouth.

If they ever create a highway interchange at I-196 in the 48th Avenue area, look out! It would become the "West Beltline" of Metro GR running all the way up to Coopersville.

IKEA now has two stores in the Chicago market less than 30 minutes from each other (Schaumburg and Bollingbrook). The whole state could support two stores the W. side and would attract shoppers from GR, Holland, Muskegon, but also Kzoo, Battle Creek and maybe even Lansing.

what do you mean by that because Canton township alone has 76k ppl and growing at a faster than alomst every area in metro GR (besides maybe alandale because that is small). I doubt georgetown or allandale tws. will ever get that big because we dont build with the density they build with in metro D. That said, look along 275, there are larger hotels and office building than you will find anywhere outside of DT GR and retail all along and then Ford ave. and MI ave. are 8 are larger and wider than rivertown, they might not have a rivertown crossings but they have about 10x everything else. Grandville is almost full and the way they are developing Georgetown twns, it will never look like that.

by the way I thought an IKEA was planned for the waterfall shoppes?

Yikes! gr8scott you should proofread that. I had to read it three times to figure out what the heck you were talking about! :)

I also think comparing metro D to metro GR is like apples and oranges.

Snoogit, I think you should see a doctor. You seem to have a bad case of puking in your mouth. I hope you keep the certs handy! :D

I don't think there are any pads left at Waterfall Shoppes. I could be wrong.

You're right about them having more population now, but I-275 Plymouth area exploded way back in the late 80's. All those office buildings along that stretch were there when I was in high school back in the 80's. I think it has plateau'd, similar to Southfield. Didn't I just read that Oakland County has now started to lose population?

I would be interested to see the stats on Townships. Metro Detroit is not growing, it is just spreading out. There's a difference.

It's not losing population, but growth has definitely slowed. About half of Oakland County's communities have lost population since 2000.

You need to have at least 10 posts to have PM abilities. :thumbsup: I guess you'll just have to jump into the Project X mix. That'll get your score up. :rofl:
