BIG PROJECTS MOVE TO TOWN

Despite the economic downturn, private investors and entrepreneurs have continued to see Brighton as a great place to do business. Several new projects have been built or are in the works for the downtown area. Here are some of the key ones:

  • Excelda Manufacturing is moving ahead with its plan to purchase the soon-to-be-vacant Greater Brighton Area Chamber of Commerce building site in downtown Brighton for $450,000 and turn it into its new corporate headquarters. Officials estimated the private investment will be about $2 million.

  • A $2.5 million, two-story, 13,000-square-foot office building was recently completed at Grand River Avenue and St. Paul Street, just a block away from the Main Four corners in the city.

  • The long vacant Singer Press building was demolished to make way for The Pound!, a sports bar and restaurant with rooftop dining. Officials estimated the private investment at $750,000.

  • Bagger Dave's opened this year in the former Country Squire building on Grand River Avenue. The restaurant was nearly a $1 million investment that created 50 jobs.
