Several Michigan entrepreneurs are banding together to develop a cannabis hospitality concept that will begin construction this month.

Called Fields Cannary, the $10 million project will span four acres in Muskegon, Mich., and serve as a one-stop cannabis destination when it’s completed by the fall of 2023, MiBiz reports.

The developers plan to convert an existing structure at 420 S. Harvey St. into a dispensary, consumption lounge and restaurant/bar, while a 17,000-square-foot processing center and greenhouse facility will be added to the site. Fields Cannary will also include an outdoor venue for hosting live concerts and an outdoor kitchen that will bring “fire to fork dining experiences,” a Facebook post reads.

When construction is finished, it’ll be “the first vertically integrated, all encompassing, cannabis hospitality business,” a news release claims.

The co-founders of the project are Corey Roberts and the husband-and-wife team of Edgar and Joanne Ramon. The trio is also teaming with Willie Jackson and Jonathan Jelks, who bring experience in the cannabis and hospitality markets.

“It is an unprecedented project,” Jelks told the outlet. “Currently there is nothing in cannabis hospitality where entertainment is merged with consumption. The cannabis market has become extremely saturated, so now what consumers are looking for are more experience-based opportunities. Having an all encompassing bar, restaurant and consumption lounge will be the new industry trend. It also will add value to the local economy.”
