HOLLAND — As Hope College looks at a potential expansion of its campus, it sees the project as a “gateway” between Hope and downtown Holland. 

The project, which remains in the early stages of development, would add three buildings to the northside of Hope’s campus, extending the college’s footprint to Eighth Street downtown. 

A screenshot from a presentation to the Holland Planning Commission shows where three new buildings, in white, would be located in a potential Hope College campus expansion in downtown Holland.

Hope presented the plan to the Holland Planning Commission during a June 14 study session. Over the next couple of months, Hope is using feedback from the commission to re-evaluate its plans. The college will meet with the group again in August. 

“We’re very early in the process, we just recently decided to develop this property that we’ve owned for a while,” Slater said. “We were looking for a location to build, this bubbled to the top of the list.”
