Proposed Overton housing Phase I design

The architectural rendering depicts the proposed three-story, 58-unit, L-shaped apartment building that would be the first phase of the proposed residential complex at the former S.E. Overton factory in South Haven.

SOUTH HAVEN — Nearly four years ago, South Haven officials acquired the condemned S.E. Overton factory buildings and ordered their demolition with the hope of one day creating space for something that has become scarce in the city – affordable housing.

This month, the hopes and dreams of city staff and council members from four years ago may become a reality.
