Urban Center

The River’s edge district is part of Kalamazoo’s vibrant urban center.  With the People’s Food Co-op and MacKenzie Bakery in the neighborhood, a five-minute walk to Food Dance, and ten minutes beyond to the city’s center at Burdick and Michigan you can leave your car behind and enjoy the freedom that urban living provides. 

Walkability

Kalamazoo is a small city that packs a big punch when it comes to walkability.  With lighted sidewalks and posted city maps navigating the city day or night is an enjoyable adventure. The Kalamazoo River Valley Trail system provides a great hiking, biking and running park leading from the city in every direction.

NoMi is dedicated to making engaging live-work-play places in Kalamazoo’s downtown.  Our current focuses are Kalamazoo’s North Side and the River’s Edge District.  Over the last four years we have added approximately 20,000 square feet of live-work space in the Walbridge, Ransom and North Street campus. This has translated into 15 permanent residents and over 60 jobs to this growing area.  By the end of 2015 we will add a distillery, restaurant and 45 apartments which will complete the transformation of this single block area to a vibrant live-work-play place to be.
