Vision & Redevelopment

When complete, The Armory will house the Shiawassee Regional Chamber of Commerce, Shiawassee Economic Development Partnership, Michigan Small Business Development Center and the Shiawassee Convention and Visitors’ Bureau, as well as a variety of small businesses and nonprofit organizations. Offices will vary in size from large private suites to open-air, drop-in work stations that share common spaces and select reception services. Tenants may have multiple employees or simply be a home-based entrepreneur who needs a desk and a professional place to meet with clients. The concept of shared facilities and services is a growing one that promotes affordability and efficiency.

There is already growing and enthusiastic support for the armory initiative. Business, community and government leaders, as well as current and former residents, recognize its potential impact not just on Owosso’s downtown, but on the entire Shiawassee County region.
