Armed with Michigan Renaissance Zone designation, more than 120 acres of prime real estate property in our community offer an incredible opportunity for business and industry to exempt themselves from virtually all state and local taxes. Prospective builders will find major sites in:

  • Edgewater...a more than 20 acre parcel of waterfront property in St. Joseph and Benton Harbor
  • The Elisha Gray Enterprise Park...20 acres in Benton Harbor and new home to WAVE, Bowater, and a division of Whirlpool Corporation
  • Graham Avenue...60 acres in Benton Harbor along the Paw Paw River and CSX Rail lines, just seconds from the new M-Tec Training facility run by Lake Michigan College
  • Fairplain South Development area...20 acres in Benton Charter Township and home to the Fairplain Plaza retail district with Target, TJ Maxx, Office Depot, S&K Menswear, Dunham’s Sports and more.

The Benton Harbor/St. Joseph area offers downtown retail sites, waterfront development sites, high-tech capabilities, utility rates that are well below the national average and the lowest electric rates in the entire state. The national companies which have already taken advantage of the treasures along our lake shore include Whirlpool Corporation World Headquarters, Bosch Braking Systems, American Electric Power Company, LECO Corporation, Gast Manufacturing division of Idex, IPC Communications Services, Wollin Products Corporation, Atlantic

Automotive Components, Amboy Foods, and Modern Plastics Corporation.
