Subdivision gets its groove back

Five new homes now line a portion of Cable Street in Trailside subdivision in South Haven. Originally called Everett Park, the subdivision languished after the housing market crash of 2008, and for 11 years only contained two homes, a clubhouse and an outdoor pool. 

SOUTH HAVEN — A housing development that languished during the Great Recession is now beginning to take shape again.

Grand Rapids developer Matthew O’Connor is in the process of building four new single-family homes as part of the first phase of Trailside, a planned unit development on the city’s south side.
