Something is Happening in Harbor Country

Something is Happening in Harbor Country

The past couple of years have been relatively quiet in Harbor Country, but 2012 has a distinctively different tone. Here is a summary of the increased action in our neck of the woods this year.

New at the casino this summer Hard Rock Cafe, Event Center, and Hotel expansion. This is great news for live music fans, 2 new venues for live performances. The casino continues to be a huge positive for the area, and has been a big supporter of Harbor Country Hike & Bike Trail. Pokagon Fund has recently donated $385,000 for the addition of bike lanes on Maudlin Road.

Construction has begun on The Peninsula in the heart of New Buffalo Harbor. Two new waterfront homes will soon be ready for occupancy. These homes are perfect for the avid boater looking for easy access to the lake.

Green Spirit Farms is bringing Organic Vertical Farming to New Buffalo. Established on 11-11-11 to grow organic vegetables 24/7 pesticide free, using carbon neutral or renewable energy sources. They are setting up shop in the old Plastic Masters building just south of town.

Hannah's restaurant to reopen as Hannah and Harry's. One of the new owners operates Harpoon Harry's in Key West. This will bring another great restaurant to the mix, and plenty of jobs to New Buffalo.

The first annual New Buffalo Artigras! will feature 130 juried artists in a variety of mediums. Artist demonstrations, festival food and live music enhance this spectacular free admission art event in the heart of New Buffalo. It is always nice to add a new quality festival to the summer calendar.

EVP Pro Volleyball to hit New Buffalo Beach this summer for Rockin Beachfest. They are expecting some 200 athletes and a $2,000 purse!

New to downtown this summer: Third Coast Surf relocates to courtyard, Warner Vineyards Wine Tasting room to open in old Keller Williams office, Mooney's Ice Cream opening adjacent to The Stray Dog, and Little Tokyo is opening in Lookout Landing!

Real Estate activity is vigorous; I hope to see you on the beach this summer!
