MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - Once an abandoned hotel site, the first residential building of The Residences at Harbor Vista is now completely full, with the last tenant moving in sometime this week.
"For us to be able to offer something new, in a new location just gives people another option and another reason to relocate to Marquette," said Dan Grille, who is the Director of Sales and Marketing.
Grille says the all-new 31-unit complex is beneficial for the area due to the growing amount of employers hiring people to relocate in Marquette.
He says this has the potential to add even more value to the city.
"We've got something that we're proud of showing off so we believe it's something that's nice to look at, and something that adds value to the feel of Marquette being a place that's worthwhile to invest into,” Grille said.
Furthermore, Grille explained how the peaceful area is perfect for people who prefer not to be downtown or in the mix of the city center, and want an upscale experience without buying a house.
"We've done our best to take something that was under-utilized in this area and put something that can provide value to the community, and we've received that response, and I think it's a great thing for everyone,” Grille said.
The Residences at Harbor Vista offer furnished and unfurnished studio one and two bedroom units, along with a variety of lease lengths.
Plans for phase two are not official, but they will break ground for the next building once the snow melts.
