Developing Reimagined Places

Because PlazaCorp was founded in Kalamazoo, many of our properties are located nearby in southwest Michigan. Focusing on regional shopping trade areas, PlazaCorp has developed in excess of 2,500,000 square feet of office, mixed-use, hospitality, multifamily, and retail properties from free-standing restaurants to much larger centers.

With a special interest in mixed-use redevelopment, PlazaCorp has renovated and restored numerous historically significant properties that have effectively enlarged the boundaries of its headquartered location in downtown Kalamazoo. PlazaCorp has won several awards for its achievements and is known to be devoted to the acquisition and restoration of many historic, obsolete and/or unique buildings.

PlazaCorp is recognized as a contributor to the revitalization and stabilization of its downtown through the successful Brownfield redevelopment of over 400,000 square feet of former manufacturing and warehouse facilities. To date, PlazaCorp has developed commercial investment properties with a value in excess of $250 million and currently manages more than 50 properties.



We seek acquisition of land suitable for strip center development, brownfield redevelopment sites and premium opportunities in urban locations, as well as the purchase of distressed loans, properties and projects.

We have the in-house expertise and knowledgeable third-party relationships that allow us to quickly qualify, put under contract, perform due diligence, and close complicated purchases.

We do this transformational work in partnership with communities, businesses and neighborhoods, considering impact and opportunity for all stakeholders.

To make places for people to prosper, we approach each project with thoughtful consideration as to how it will make people feel and interact. Our strip centers and commercial retail properties have high standards for design, surfaces and landscaping.

You will also see differences in our marquee renovation and adaptive reuse projects. We don’t just restore, we reimagine. We open up shared spaces and modernize the usability. We enhance the character of brick, metal and wood while respecting its history.

These are the kinds of renovations that serve as a catalyst for momentum and more projects.

Project Concept Architecture

Creativity and vision are critical elements in the design and conceptualization of any project, from new construction to historic renovations.

We have renovated and restored many historic, obsolete and/or unique buildings. We pride ourselves in providing the community an opportunity to experience what was…and now is…revealing the original beauty of each building we restore.

Our talented team is proud to have helped design a number of award winning projects, and we look forward to doing more.
