Private/Public Partnership: Estimate of City Costs

The development of Parcel B, the vacant lot between the Borden Creamery and Mountain Town Station, is incumbent on the successful renovation and occupancy of the Creamery. The City and the developer, J.E. Johnson, have come to understand that the only way to meet the overall economic development goals and save the historically significant structure is to enter into a public/ private partnership on Parcel A, the Creamery site.

The proposal calls for J. E. Johnson, the developer, to transfer the renovated site to Central Michigan Development Group LLC which will establish a building condominium with two legally defined interior units. The City will purchase one of the units, referred to as a "shoebox", of approximately 28,600 square feet. The exterior of the building will be owned by Central Michigan Development and leased to a non-profit organization for a period of five years so that Central Michigan Development can qualify for the historic renovation tax credits that add to the feasibility of this project. Using today's construction costs the City's purchase price will be approximately $3.5 million. Total renovation cost is estimated at $5.3 million.

Total City costs to relocate City Hall offices are estimated at:

Purchase price of renovated building $ 3,500,000
Furnishings and fixtures 1,311,000
Phone, video, generator systems 200,000
Infrastructure (parking, landscaping) 375,000
(may be covered by grant)
Utility hook-ups 25,000
Bond insurance/underwriter fees 150,000
Legal fees 7,000
Broadway streetscape 135,000
(may be covered by grant)
Contingency 296,000
TOTAL $ 6,000,000*

*to be reduced with proceeds of the sale of the current City Hall building
