Petoskey Pointe Extension Granted

The Petoskey City Council recently voted 4-1 to extend a deadline for "substantial completion" of the Petoskey Pointe Project from early November of 2008 to December 31, 2009. The deadline is part of an agreement between the City and Lake Street Petoskey Associates, the Farmington Hills developer of the Project. According to published reports in the Petoskey News Review, work on the hotel/retail/condominium project stalled last year after National City Bank withdrew its financing. The Developer requested an extension of the deadline in December of 2007, indicating that new financing arrangements involving overseas funds were close to being finalized. To provide protection for the City, the resolution approved by the City Council calls for financing to be demonstrated and construction on the project to resume by March 15th.
