Commercial Project

180 E. Water Street

CSM Group is currently managing the construction of Catalyst Development Co.’s newest property located at 180 E. Water Street in downtown Kalamazoo, Michigan. The $70 million, 290-square-foot mixed-use building will transform part of a city-owned parking lot into a seven-story building with two floors of residential housing (41,000 square feet), four floors of Class A office space (55,000 square feet), and a multi-level 300-plus space parking deck.

This development brings new life to what was a surface parking lot, significantly improving the overall use through place-making initiatives; a mixed-use, high-density development that maximizes green space and public areas.

The design of the building will serve as a stimulant for further development downtown. Combining spaces for living and working, building tenants and surrounding pedestrians will enjoy snowmelt sidewalks and convenient accessibility. Tenants of this property will include The Kalamazoo Promise®️, The Kalamazoo Promise®️ Institute, Communities in Schools, Warner Norcross and Judd LLP, and Southwest Michigan First.

This project is a unique collaboration of tenants, including residential, non-profit, economic development, and commercial office space. As one of the non-profit tenants is focused on career development for youth, tenant interaction and collaboration will be a focus throughout the duration of the project.

CSM Group is collaborating with Western Michigan University’s College of Engineering & Applied Science by hosting this project as a Capstone project for a group of senior engineering students. As part of our integrated learning approach, these students will be able to make site visits with the project team during critical milestones to understand the challenges and unique situations that can arise during a project of this magnitude.
