RedevelopmentTC Curling Club Entrance

The proposed redevelopment will adaptively convert the 85,345 square foot former Kmart building at the Cherryland Mall into a state-of-the-art curling club by the Traverse City Curling Club(TC Curling) and additional uses. The TC Curling Club acquired the former Kmart property and is in the process of redeveloping the property for the popular sport of curling, as well as additional private redevelopment with the remainder of the property.

The curling facility will occupy approximately one-third of the Kmart building and the other two-thirds will be renovated for private use with complementary uses, including food service, retail, and recreation, that will help generate property tax revenue.

Redevelopment of the property began in Summer 2022, with initial asbestos abatement and selective demolition.
