HopCat Opens at Renovated Depot

Built in the mid-1920s, the long and narrow wood and brick building was originally a freight office for Grand Trunk Western Railroad. Today it hosts patrons looking for a cold craft beer and a bite to eat, with more options on the way soon at Maru Sushi.

The Exchange Moves Forward

PlazaCorp is thrilled to partner with Phoenix Properties to bring a new signature building to the downtown Kalamazoo skyline. The 15-story structure will include commercial retail and office space, multiple levels of parking, and 100+ residential units.

Relocate to Historic Arcadia

In the heart of all the entertainment, amenities and energy of downtown Kalamazoo, this group of carefully restored plus complementary new buildings has beautiful small- and large-scale space available.

Our surroundings shape our work, play and everyday life. At PlazaCorp we shape real estate to be amazing places for people and community to prosper. Commercial spaces that create culture. Retail developments that feel like neighborhoods. Historic restorations that inspire awe. 

Office +

We offer a large number of ready to move in commercial office locations, which are perfect for a new business, a growing company that is looking to expand, or an established company looking for a commercial space upgrade. We also offer many locations that can be more personalized and tailored to meet very specific needs for space, culture and identity.

Retail +

Your retail success may demand high density foot traffic. Or, your business may be appropriate for a destination approach. Whether you want to be between suburban neighborhoods, on a major city artery or within the historic and energetic urban core, we have locations to suit your needs.

Residential +

PlazaCorp is venturing into residential space with our development of the Exchange building in downtown Kalamazoo.


PlazaCorp is interested in acquisition of land suitable for strip center development, brownfield redevelopment sites and premium opportunity urban locations.


To make places for people to prosper, we approach each project with thoughtful consideration as to how it will make people feel and interact.


Many property developers do not manage their own properties. They outsource not only the care for and maintenance of the buildings, but also the relationships with and needs of the tenants.

Team +

At the end of the day, business is about people. People with the right experience. People you trust. People with undeniable passion.

Approach +

Our approach acquisition and development is one part experience, one part analysis and one part passion.

History +

PlazaCorp was founded in 1988 by Jeff Nicholson, a Canadian-born entrepreneur with a vision for real estate beyond buildings and leases.
