A new addition to Downtown Flint’s hospitality is a 101-guestroom hotel, the Hilton Buckham Square. The project is expected to generate almost $40 million of investment and about $7.9 million in MCRP funds. The state agency and investment partner, Michigan Economic Development Corp (MEDC) has funded the Michigan Community Revitalization Program project for the hotel.
The former Genesee County Bank is located at 352 S. Saginaw St, a property vacant for almost 20 years. The project will serve to attract more visitors to the downtown and bring increased economic activity to the area and will provide about 75 permanent full-time jobs.
As businesses continue to grow downtown, the hotel will be a great new location to the city of Flint making it a place to “live, work and play”.
