The redevelopment broke ground June 2017. There was quite a bit of change to the original building.

This project renovated the 60-year old Civic Center, Holland’s historic center of recreational and cultural activity while strengthening the physical connection of downtown Holland to the Lake Macatawa waterfront. Through a careful balance of recreation, cultural programming, and Farmer’s Market activity, the site serves as a catalyst for the activation of the west end of 8th Street. The City engaged a team of architects, engineers, planners, and landscape architects led by Edgewater Resources to facilitate the redevelopment.
