GT Band Eyes 2024 Completion of Herkner Road Housing Project

By Beth Milligan | March 16, 2023

The Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians is targeting a 2024 completion date for a multi-purpose housing development on 72.51 acres of trust land off Herkner Road in Traverse City.

According to a GT Band release and project rendering (pictured), the Kchi-Noodin Kaamdaakiing Development will feature 33 single-family lots, 23 single-family cottages, 34 duplexes for elders housing, 43 townhomes, and 40 apartments, for a total of 173 residential units when completed. The units will be offered to income-qualified applicants who will pay no more than 30 percent of their income toward rent and utilities, according to the release.

The GT Band has been working on the project since 2014, when it acquired the property for $440,000 from net earnings of tribal enterprises. Since then, the GT Band has worked to put the land into trust, developed water/sewer/road infrastructure, and secured Michigan State Housing Development Authority, Indian Housing Block Grant, American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), and congressional funding. According to the release, the development will be built in phases at a total estimated investment of $28 million. Amenities listed for the site include a community center, offices, gym, pavilion, and daycare facility.
