History of The Sand Docks
Damfino Development, LLC, a Sand Products Corporation (SPC) subsidiary, is the developer of The Sand Docks. The 80 acres was once known as Pigeon Hill. SPC’s first acquisition of property at Pigeon Hill occurred upon the corporation’s formation in 1930 and additional parcels of land were acquired through 1962. The sand on the property was mined for use in the foundry industry until 1967 when mining ceased. The property remained under SPC’s ownership with the intent to develop it at the appropriate time. SPC continued to pay taxes on the land as we waited for the right time to refocus part of our business on creating a new housing development in Muskegon.
