MCC Downtown Center
Muskegon Community College
Muskegon Community College purchased the former Muskegon Chronicle newspaper building and the adjacent Masonic Temple to be renovated for the College’s entrepreneurial studies, applied technology programs and a prototype development center.
The Center will house the prototype station; fabrication, welding, automation, electricity and machining labs; a robotics center partially funded by Alcoa; and classrooms and faculty offices. The lower level will offer rentable entrepreneur office space.
The former Masonic Temple portion of the building will house the The Rooks | Sarnicola Institute for Entrepreneurial Studies, which will include a fabrication lab, a youth entrepreneurial space, Best Financial Credit Union and a Barnes & Noble bookstore.
