Koll Development Company
Western Michigan University East Campus Development

Location:
Kalamazoo, Michigan
Size:
20 acres
Description:
A redevelopment study of the 20-acre East Campus on Prospect Hill at Western Michigan University which contains open space and four historic, vacant buildings. Given the distinctive structures and the unique site, the team researched building use history, site connectivity, and master planning concepts developed by the University over the past 100 years. Findings led to the new vision of Prospect Hill as a landmark destination, an “acropolis” for the community. The proposed plan includes the buildings to be repurposed with uses such as a boutique hotel, residential units, professional office space and potential graduate school programs.
