A ribbon-cutting was held Thursday night for another major mid-Michigan project as the East End development opened for business in downtown Midland.
The East End is a 4-story, 48-million dollar urban-style structure in downtown Midland.
Towering a hundred yards away from the Dow Diamond, East End's purpose is to bring business to town by day and visitor's by night.
"It's mostly office space, there's also attorney offices, a couple of restaurants and a wealth management from chemical bank on the main levels," says Christin O'Callaghan, an organizer of the project.
The 225-thousand square foot building is taking Midland to new heights, bringing 500 jobs to the area.
If the block party Thursday night is any indication of this building's future, East End could become one of Midland's premiere hot spots.
Midland always has an eye on what the city can be doing next and setting the trend.
An announcement for another restaurant coming to East End will be made in a couple of weeks.
