Two breweries heading to Muskegon

MUSKEGON, Michigan (WZZM) - Downtown Muskegon doesn't have a brewery just yet, but it should have two by next year.

Joel Kamp is teaming up with two other men to open "Pigeon Hill Brewing Company" at 500 West Western Ave. He hopes to restore the 2,500 square foot building and add a barrel aging room upstairs. If all goes well the micro-brewery should open in 2013.

It will be just down the street from the city's first brewery. "Unruly Brewing Company" should open on West Western Avenue this Spring. It will feature four to six styles of craft beer on tap, and wine.

Upscale condos planned for downtown Muskegon

MUSKEGON, Mich. (WZZM) - Muskegon City Commissioners are approving a $14 million residential development in the city's downtown area.

Terrace Point Landing will be built on 11 acres along Muskegon Lake. The property is between the Shoreline Inn and Grand Valley State University's Alternative Energy Center.

With the commission's approval, the owners of Parkland Development will move ahead with plans to build 70 single-family condo homes on the property. It's the largest housing development in downtown Muskegon in a decade.

"Small homes in a highly-amenitized project at a affordable price that will be high quality," says Jon Rooks of Parkland Development. "Two, three, and four-bedroom homes with two-and-a-half or three baths, with great views of Muskegon Lake."

28 homes will be built directly along the lake. The project includes a private beach and pool.
