Mackinaw Crossings is an entertainment/ retail development in the heart of the Village of Mackinaw City, Michigan. The Crossings includes retail shops, restaurants, a five-plex cinema, and an 800 seat live theater. The design of the Crossings features a collection of comfortable outdoor spaces. These courtyards are sized to let people feel safe and relaxed and to protect them from the ever-present Mackinaw winds. Pedestrians can stroll from court to court, discovering something new at each turn. The buildings that form these outdoor spaces are designed in the “Victorian” style. These buildings knit together to create a comfortable, familiar environment. The Crossings has proven to be successful in creating a place for people to gather and to enjoy themselves. As a result, merchants have prospered as well.
