Three developers show interest in Holland’s old power plant

HOLLAND — Several companies have expressed interest in developing land on the city of Holland’s Lake Macatawa waterfront, made available by the closure of the James De Young power plant site. 

The city put out a call for developers to submit their qualifications earlier this year, looking for a firm to either redevelop the power plant site or waterfront land south of the power plant site owned by Verplank Dock Co. and Padnos Recycling. Verplank or Padnos would relocate operations to the power plant site in that scenario. 

Holland City Council heard a report from their consultants Hitchcock Design Group and SB Friedman, who have been facilitating the request for qualifications and request for proposals process, during the council’s study session Aug. 25.
