On Monday night, Boyne City officials gave final approval to a development company, allowing them to move forward with the Lake Street building project.
Catt Development will handle the project, renovating two buildings in downtown Boyne City that were first constructed in the early 1900's.
Company President Glenn Catt said that once the renovations are completed, up to five tenants will be able to do business out of the buildings.
The first tenant, 7 Monks Tap Room, has already been signed to one of the spaces.
"What you have here is an area with a lot of potential," said Catt. "It's a special community that loves to celebrate it's history and that's something that I can really appreciate."
One of the two buildings has been registered as a historic destination.
The building used to be the school district's bus garage.
Catt said he hopes to put the project out to bid in late September and have work begin by early October.
