A new multi-family housing development is planned at 170 Riverview Drive, across from the Whirlpool Benton Harbor Tech Center.

BENTON HARBOR — Two multi-million dollar projects that would bring more than 100 housing units to Benton Harbor were given a vote of support Monday by city commissioners.

In one of the projects, Whirlpool is planning to build a $20 million multi-family apartment complex at 179 Riverview Drive across the street from the Whirlpool Benton Harbor Tech Center. The apartments are expected to help attract high-quality talent to the area not just for Whirlpool, but for other companies.
