After more than a decade of the former bowling alley block sitting vacant, construction can now soon begin on developer Bob Jacobson’s project to build two, four-story apartment buildings on the Ludington property.
At its regular meeting Monday evening, the Ludington City Council finalized agreements between the City of Ludington and Jacobson.
The planned buildings will house commercial space on the ground floor and up to 60 apartments in the top three stories. The property is bordered by Ludington Avenue, Loomis Street, Rath Avenue and Robert Street.
Kathy Winczewski, councilwoman for the second ward, said the project encountered several roadblocks during the years it’s taken to finalize the development deal.
“We almost gave up hope that it would happen,” Winczewski said. “It’s so exciting that it’s coming to fruition.”
