Located at 203 S. Washington Ave; Saginaw, MI  48607

The SVRC Marketplace is located in an Urban setting, nestled in the historic Saginaw News building where parking is available but may require walking as it is located in the heart of the city.  The location as well as many other unique qualities make this destination very special.  Please be patient when looking for available parking and also exercise respect for the many guests frequenting the area.  We are so very excited about the revitalization our project has provided to the city and the thousands of guests visiting our beautiful Riverfront Saginaw community.
