Covenant Business Park of Lowell Charter Township

The business park, located at the I-96 & Alden Nash interchange, is zoned PUD for industrial and commercial uses.

Covenant Business Park of Lowell Charter Township

With a current industrial vacancy rate of under 1.66% for the Greater Grand Rapids area, additional development sites like this are essential to capitalize on the unprecedented pipeline of interest in West Michigan from manufacturing companies, tech firms, and more. Not having build-ready sites nor industrial inventory means our area is missing out on substantial investment and high-quality job creation.

Regional and local support for Covenant Business Park

This approximately 200-acre site is a top priority for Lowell Township and is a top strategic site regionally for The Right Place (RPI). Lowell Township and the City of Lowell have formed a historic collaborative agreement to work together to accomplish utility service at this site. This site has been identified and zoned for industrial use by Lowell Charter Township for over a decade.

It is a large site strategically located between Metro Grand Rapids and Greater Lansing, with the ability to attract both business and talent from both markets. It has access to a significant, skilled labor pool – approx. 900,000 population in a 30-mile radius. Recent MDOT investments in the I-96 interchange for full all-season truck access are already in place. The Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) is supporting the project with a Strategic Site Readiness Program (SSRP) grant to run infrastructure to the site.

Covenant Industrial Park will be a catalyst for additional revitalization of the community

The proposed expansion to the City of Lowell’s wastewater system would serve the community’s growth for at least the next twenty years. The possibility of 3,000 jobs at this site, with an average wage of $24/hour would mean $150 million in new payroll injected into the Lowell area annually. This will have significant positive impacts on the local business base, local taxes, school district, and more. Moreover, once utilities are available at this site, nearby quality-of-life developments will be able to tap into these utilities.
