A distinctive shopping district, nestled between two rivers in the heart of a scenic rural community with many amenities to draw visitors to the area and a local demographic that supports local businesses and entrepreneurs.
Portland is a delightful community in mid Michigan, conveniently located between urban Grand Rapids and our state Capitol, Lansing – with two exits off I-96. Our city is on the cusp of incredible growth. Right now we have several development projects in the beginning stages including an increase in commercial retail space on Kent St, our Main Street, as well as new residential opportunities coming soon to Portland Downtown.
Below you will find some links to resources (and others coming soon) regarding business enhancement here in Portland. Thank you so much for considering Portland Downtown for your business. We look forward to having you in the neighborhood!
