LAPORTE | The city, its redevelopment commission and the Greater LaPorte Economic Development Corp. has announced they have selected Holladay Properties as the developer of the NewPorte Landing Redevelopment Project.
NewPorte Landing includes the redevelopment of 150 acres along Clear Lake in the heart of La Porte.
"We are extremely excited about all of the continued development in La Porte and this agreement represents a monumental step forward in a major project for the city," Mayor Blair Milo said in a statement.
Holladay Properties will begin assessing the development plan for this site. Representatives from the city, Redevelopment Commission, New Porte Landing Committee and the Community Development Partnership conducted an extensive search for qualified developers for the project, according to a news release.
Holladay has been involved in developing other properties in the region, including the Ameriplex at the Port complex in Portage, which is home to industrial and retail users including Bass Pro Shop, Starbucks, McDonalds and Country Inn and Suites.
"We share La Porte's enthusiasm for this project and look forward to the work we will complete in the coming months. Ultimately, we want to construct a project that residents of La Porte see as an asset to the community and can identify with," said Mike Micka, vice president of development for Holladay Properties.
