A cannabis dispensary is opening its second Kalamazoo location.
Gage Cannabis will open a 4,000-square-foot dispensary on Dec. 17. at 3825 Stadium Drive in Kalamazoo.
A vacant house and a gas station previously stood on the location of the dispensary. Grand Rapids-based Orion Construction demolished both buildings and began building the new the dispensary in June.
The structure of the new building includes a retaining wall on the backside of the building pad, block walls with granite panels, storefront windows with a decorative veneer overhang to enclose the structure, along with additional curb street appeal and landscaping.
The dispensary features a lobby, a waiting area with floor-to-ceiling storefront windows and entry door, a sales room, vault, delivery room, managers/security office, storage rooms and two Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant restrooms inside.
The cost of the project was not disclosed.
“This location in Kalamazoo was left unattended and had become an eyesore on this heavily traveled thoroughfare in the city,” said Orion Construction President Brad Walsh. “Under Gage’s vision, we transformed a neglected property into a modern, architecturally crafted facility that will serve new and existing clients within the growing cannabis industry and also support economic growth in Kalamazoo.”
Gage Cannabis has 10 retail dispensaries in the
