Think the cabins at St. Joseph Peninsula State Park with a splash of luxury.

“This is hybrid,” Kennedy said. “There will be an urban feel to the houses, up close to the sidewalks. When you look at national trends, people have really trended to smaller houses. These will have more of a resort feel.

“It’s like a beach vacation rental in that you have all the amenities and it is like a hotel in that you have easy access to restaurants, businesses, the boat ramp and everything the city offers.”

He scouted locations, but the site on State Road 71 was ideal for several reasons, most importantly it was zoned commercial to allow the development. The land is also situated in the proper flood zone, Kennedy said, compared to more coastal property he had researched.

Each cottage, there will be six built on the half-acre lot, will be 600 square feet.

They will have two bedrooms, one-and-a-half bathrooms and will be fully furnished with all needed appliances for the kitchen and laundry.

The cottages will have all hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances, marble countertops and flat screen televisions in the master bedroom and living room
