Mixed-use development helps revitalize failing Grand Rapids business district

September 12, 2011 |
Commerce Street in Grand Rapids, Mich., is home to a new mixed-use development, helping restore a once vibrant business district. The public-private project, named 38 Commerce, comprises a 379-space, city-owned parking ramp, a seven-story commercial office wing, and an eight-story, 42-unit residential development with retail space.
 
Featuring conference rooms, employee lounges, and office space, the 85,800-sf, LEED-rated development is helping to bolster local business. Rooftop patios and residential balconies overlook the restaurant and entertainment district, while apartments and condominiums are directly attached to a corresponding floor of an attached parking ramp. Building Team: the city of Grand Rapids, Materials Testing Construction, Pioneer Construction, Burgess Concrete Construction, Summit Landscape Management, and Ritsema Associates.
