Showcased within a Victorian setting and miles away from high-pressure malls, downtown Dowagiac is enjoying a great new spirit of confidence and revitalization. 

The modern-day renaissance, which began in the 1990s, continues to transform our central business district into the showplace of the region, as it draws the welcomed attention of local residents, regional shoppers, and new and expanding retailers.  As a result, we are on the path to achieving a zero-vacancy rate.

Through public-private partnerships, Dowagiac has invested more than $10-million in the revitalization of its downtown.  From distinctive turn-of-the century architecture to stunning public sculpture and the personal, friendly service of our family-run businesses, we think you'll agaree, our community offers retailers a prime location for their new or growing business.  To tour any of these sites, available for lease or purchase, call our office today at (269) 782-8212.  We look foward to hearing from you soon.
