Waterfront Opportunities

Our Shoreline.  Your Horizon.

If you are looking to invest in waterfront development opportunities, including hotel & leisure, condominiums, retail or restaurants, we invite you to consider St. Clair County.  Several opportunities with magnificent waterfront views are currently available for development or redevelopment. Please give us a call at 810.982.9511 for a confidential market analysis or more details about these phenomenal waterfront development opportunities and more. 

Situated on one of the most active border crossings in the United States, St. Clair County is a major region for trade and e-commerce.  We embrace our strong border ties and frequent visits for shopping, dining and lodging from Canadian visitors.  The impact of the border crossing on our local economy is tremendous, and major retailers and hotels continue to invest along the county’s main commercial corridors.
