The Charles Stewart Mott Foundation expects to provide up to $4.2 million to the Foundation for the Uptown Redevelopment Corporation for the continuing development of downtown Flint, Mich. Grants will support the redevelopment of the Mott Block on Flint’s South Saginaw Street, which will be anchored by a new, mixed-use 27,000-square-foot building with civil engineering firm Wade Trim as its primary office tenant. The company signed a 12-year lease and plans to relocate 25 employees into the building.
“It is heartening to see the redevelopment of this property move forward,” said William S. White, Mott Foundation president. “This will leverage and complement efforts that are currently under way across the street and on nearby blocks.”
The new office complex, to be constructed in the middle of the block, will have space for five entertainment-oriented restaurants or retailers on the ground floor; 8,500 square feet of office space for Wade Trim on the second floor; and four high-end lofts on the third floor.
