On the heels of a range of downtown developments coming online in recent years, Orion Real Estate Solutions saw further demand for Class A office space in Grand Rapids. 

Some housing developers in West Michigan are turning to condominiums and townhomes in targeting Millennials who are looking for more space and quieter locations. 

For a decade, mixed-used and industrial property developments have fueled West Michigan’s building boom. Now, we may be seeing the dawn of a cannabis construction era.

GRAND RAPIDS — The opportunity to lease brand new office space in the heart of downtown Grand Rapids offered Van Wyk Risk Solutions the chance to grow into a new location. 

Orion Real Estate Solutions has signed a letter of intent with the city of Rockford to build a new boutique hotel downtown on city-owned property at 12 S. Main St.

A project to construct townhomes in the city’s Michigan Oaks neighborhood gained financial support from the state on Tuesday.

Hotel development in West Michigan remains on a torrid pace for 2019. Developers have plans to add more than 800 new rooms this year, with developments popping up in downtown Grand Rapids and in suburban areas surrounding the city. At the same time, although annual hotel occupancy dipped slightly for 2018, hotel revenue actually increased, a reflection of record room bookings.

A new effort aims to find ways to kickstart economic growth along The Rapid’s Silver Line bus route from Grand Rapids though southern Kent County.
