North Shore Health Services expands to 11,000-square-foot vacant office building

Colliers Lansing assists building owner in finding the right tenant

BAY CITY, Mich. — A health services company is expanding in order to provide resources and therapy to children who have been diagnosed with autism.

Colliers Lansing helped its client, Cats Holding Company LLC, find a tenant for a vacant office building at 1426 Straits Drive in Bay City, which will become the location of North Shore Health Services, also a Colliers client, whose business is providing applied behavior analysis therapy for children and families.

“Not many places in Michigan provide these services for families with children who have been diagnosed with autism, and our goal is to make this resource available to as many families as needed,” said RJ Peters, owner of North Shore Health Services. “We are excited to open our new space and be able to serve many more children and families.”

North Shore opened its first location in Auburn in 2017 and is currently expanding to Bay City, along with its existing facility in Ithaca and has recently opened at 3303 W. Saginaw in Lansing.

The 11,600-square-foot space within the 15,000-square-foot building has easy access to highways, making it accessible to communities in the Bay region. Most of the space is made up of offices, conference rooms and an open area, so children will have plenty of room for both individual learning and play.

“The office sector has had a tough couple of years due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and it’s great to see North Shore Health Services expand with another new facility; the third one we have been able to assist them with,” said Shawn O’Brien, CCIM, vice president at Colliers Lansing.

There are numerous offices in the building that will allow the board-certified behavioral analysts to work individually with children and their families, depending on their needs. The building also gives North Shore room to grow with another 3,000 square feet available, if needed in the future.

“We think this space will be a great fit for North Shore’s current needs and future growth, and we are looking forward to having them in the building,” said Catherine Pinkerton, owner of the building.

North Shore is planning to begin providing services in December.
