The Rev. Brian Fesler, a regional representative for the church, said the project is part of its national concept for an "ideal organization." Fesler said Battle Creek's congregation was ahead of its time with a vision for the project that dates back more than a decade — even if it didn't know what that would look like just yet.

"When they bought the building, they had the building but didn't have the mechanism," he said.

Fesler said a letter from the city of Battle Creek accelerated the redevelopment effort by the church.

Community Services Director Marcie Gillette said the city held a hearing earlier this year and designated the Hart Hotel as a dangerous building. Gillette said the building was unsecured after being clipped by cars as it stood vacant for more than a decade.
